"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:44-45

As we remember Martin Luther King Jr. let's take to heart the words of Matthew 5:44-45. These are words Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. put into practice. Let us also put them into practice so we may be called children of the Heavenly Father, who loves the persecuted and the persecutors.

Just a reminder to parents that grades 4-8 will begin midterm exams beginning Monday, January 22 and they will go through Friday, January 26.

On Saturday, January 27 our eighth grade class will running our annual "Meatball Madness Fundraiser." The first serving will be at 5:00 pm  and the last will be at 7:30 pm. More information can be found on the Friday Folder.

Catholic Schools Week kicks off on Sunday, January 28 at the 9:00 am mass with our eighth grade 'Ring and Pin Ceremony," followed by a breakfast for the eighth grade in the school gymnasium. We will also have "Open House" from 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm. If you are interested in a school that teaches strong Catholic values along with a rigorous academic curriculum stop by and see for yourself what St. Therese School has to offer. Our outstanding faculty and staff will be on hand along with parents of current students to give guided tours. We will also have "Open House" on our "Welcome Wednesdays" from 9:00 am - 11:00 am. More information about our school and Catholic Schools Week can be found on the St. Therese School Friday Folder.

Our calendar Raffle is under way. Thank you to all who sold tickets and participated in this fundraiser. Seven wuinners are picked every Monday morning with chances to win up to $500.00.

Finally, I want to thank Fr. Marc for getting up so early on Friday, January 19 to offer mass at 6:00 am for "The Unborn." Fr. Marc, myself, parents, students and parishioners made the trip to Washington DC at 6:30 am to participate in the "March for Life."

The greatest weapon against the evil of abortion is prayer. Our day was filled with prayer. Before we made the trip, mass was offfered for "The Unborn." On the way down we recited, "The Rosary for the Unborn,"  a special Rosary given to us by our "Blessed Mother." If you would like more information regarding this special rosary go to "rosaryfortheunborn.com" and on the way back Deacon Murphy led us in "The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy.

I ask everyone who reads this blog to pray for pregnant women who are contemplating having an abortion, for those who have had an abortion and regret their choice, for those who perform abortions and finally for the unborn baby in the womb, that they will guaranteed their God given, and US constitutional right to life.

"He knew us before He formed us in the womb." Jeremiah 1:5.

God bless and have a wonderful weekend,
