Each year in January the Catholic Church in America celebrates CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK (this year: January 29 – February 3). We’re planning some exciting events here at our SMMA Catholic Grade School beginning with an Open House this Sunday, January 29th. There can be no better gift parents can give their children than a Catholic Education. Our parish is greatly blessed to have a Catholic grade school which receives the support of all parishioners.
Along with offering an excellent academic program, especially with our Innovation Lab and STREAM Studio, our Catholic grade school highlights daily the essentials of our Catholic Faith for our students. The banner in our lobby says it best…. “Let it be known to all who enter here that Jesus Christ is the reason for this school, the unseen but ever present teacher in all its classes, the model of its faculty and the inspiration for its students.”
This bulletin has information for student registration for our Preschool and Kindergarten. Granted Catholic schools involve tuition, but there is assistance available. One unified online application is available at TTEF-STL. org for all scholarships funded by the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation (TTEF), the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri, and the Office of Catholic Education and Formation.
This past week the Catholic Church observed a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18 – 25). We all have family members, friends, neighbors who are members of other churches. The Catholic Church recognizes the value of all religions in a spirit of ecumenism. Join me in asking for God’s special blessings on all churches, especially in our Oakville community.
Previews of coming attractions:
With the Feast of St. Blaise this Friday, February 3rd, we will offer the traditional Blessing of Throats at our morning Masses.
I love our Annual Wedding Anniversaries Mass, this year on Sunday, February 19th, at 8:30am. This bulletin has information on how you can join us for the Mass and breakfast if you’re celebrating a special anniversary this year.
This weekend is a “5th Sunday of the Month.” All loose collection money goes to our St. Vincent de Paul Ministry. Thanks for your generosity to this valuable outreach to our community.
God bless our Catholic School
