April and Spring is the time for awakening to new growth. May we look for new beginnings after forty days of reflection and preparing for a renewed spiritual life that comes forth in us each spring – Jesus’ love for us exemplified in the gift of His life. In that same spirit of Jesus’ love, our students will be receiving the body and blood of Jesus for their first time on March 30th at 9:30am. I invite all in the school community to
attend as well as keep these students and families in our prayers.
My sincere thanks to Father Michael Pontarelli for his generous parish financial support to the school. The monthly special collection has been a tremendous help. Tuition for the coming year has been set and there will be an increase of $16 per month per child. Registration for newly accepted and returning students is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22nd from 2-7P in the Seven Holy Founders room.
Our Easter break will begin on Good Friday, April 19th. We will return from Easter break to begin school on Monday, April 29th. All in the St. Juliana Falconieri community are welcomed and invited to attend our Holy Thursday Liturgy of the Word on April 18th from 9:15 to 10am.
There is an overflow of events and preparation occurring in the month of April. The Eighth grade East Coast expedition and many more events that make the month more than full. Please check the calendar for dates and events that affect your particular family.
During the Lenten season, let us focus on how we can take time for ourselves and 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 in the Lenten season and draw you closer to Him.
Continued blessings to you and your family,
Manuel Gonzales Jr., M.A.
