The celebration of Catholic schools began on January 26th and will continue through January 31st. What a fantastic way to kick off Catholic Schools Week with the celebration of the Mass by our pastor, Fr. Mike! It is during this week the students, parents, and parish community will experience “a coherent, comprehensive vision of life” with the many activities planned. Also, during this week there will be happenings that will be targeted for our parents and parish community. I invite and welcome you!
I would like to thank the 3rd and 7th grade students and teachers who did a phenomenal job participating in the liturgy. The choir, led by Miss Claudia did a wonderful job leading the congregation in singing. Our Parent Board members and student ambassadors were very helpful and informative in providing guided tours to prospective families. To the teachers, faculty, staff, and students of St. Juliana Falconieri School, thank you for making our school so special and unique. Our Core Values are alive and visible throughout our school community.
I want to thank you in advance for your support of the St. Juliana Gala. Our theme is "What a Wonderful World" and will take place on Saturday, February 8, at Fullerton Airport Hangar 21. This year our gala will be honoring Ron and Carole Cassell for their support of our school community. Your participation in the Falcon Gala directly impacts the educational programs that benefit every child in our school.
As we approach Lent, let us focus on how we can take time for our relationship with God. Time spent for quiet reflection is not a luxury but an important need for our spiritual growth. May God bless you and draw you closer to Him.
Continued blessings to you and your family,
Manuel Gonzales Jr. M.A.
