"Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey." Zechariah 9:9

Hopefully, we have seen our last snowstorm of the season. This past week we used another snow day so our calendar once again has been revised. School will be in session for a full day on Holy Thursday with aftercare, and for a half day on Good Friday for reflection and prayer. There will be no academics taught on our half day retreat on Good Friday. School will be dismissed at 11:45 am and there will be buses provided. Any student who does not attend school for reflection and prayer on Good Friday will be excused. I understand that this is a very solemn Holy Day and some families may want to do these reflections and prayers at home. Students who do attend will reflect on Good Friday by reciting the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary. They will attend the Stations of the Cross and begin the Novena to the Divine Mercy by reciting the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy. All of this will be done to prepare ourselves for the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. I believe students who attend will come away with a great understanding of what our Lord Jesus Christ did for us on that Good Friday.

In regards to Easter Week, school will be closed on Monday, April 2 and Tuesday, April 3. School will reopen Wednesday, April 4 and will be in session for the remainder of the week. The projected last day of school is Wednesday, June 20. Please see the revised calendar on the Friday Folder.

On Friday, March 23 and Sunday, March 25 at 7:30 pm, Mr. Michael Harding, our St. Therese students and other youth members from the parish will present and participate in the Living Stations of the Cross at the St. Therese Church.

And finally our second Scrap and Craft will take place on Saturday, March 24.

Everyone have a Blessed Weekend and Palm Sunday,

Tim Dunnigan
