Starting on April 20th, I will be using Seesaw to list assignments and activities for my classes. My hope is that this will help both students and parents with the organizational structure of the online learning process. It is a one stop site for not only the listing of assignments but a way to complete the work and submit it.
Complete instructions will be sent to each student and parent on how to join your class.

Great Service opportunity!
Message from one of our parents.
I was wondering if we could put a challenge out to the students. Right now all the hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities are not allowed visitors. My poor patients at Roswell are going through some of the scariest times of their lives and are not allowed to have the support of their family. I know this happening at all the hospitals and senior living facilities. Is there a way we can put out a challenge to the students to make as many cards as possible to help encourage these patients and residents. If they could be dropped off at the school, I’d be happy to pick up and deliver to local hospitals and facilities.
Thank you all. I promise collecting these projects will fill your heart, I feel so lucky to be the one printing and mailing such beautiful messages. We have an incredible community.

May 6th - 10th, 2020
I am sad to inform everyone that due to the uncertainty of what lies ahead over the next month or so, we have decided to cancel the 8th Grade trip to the Boston area scheduled for May 6th through May 9th.
This decision was made at this time, due to knowing that the sooner we do it, the better chance of our vendors to refund the most amount of money committed to each step of the trip.
For more information, please refer to the message e-mailed to the 8th grade parents on 3/31 or contact 1st. choice Educational Tours.
This were you will find info on upcoming activities that my classes are preparing for.
We have started the preparation for our annual presentation of the "Living Stations of the Cross". Date and time TBA

Prayers for Praying the Rosary
The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified; died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Fatima Prayer (Optional)
O my Jesus, forgive us of our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls into heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy.
Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Leader: Pray for us O Holy Mother of God,
All: That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.
Leader: Let us pray.
All: O God whose only begotten Son by his life, death, and Resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant we beseech thee, that meditating on these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
As is our normal start to class, I ask that you start by reciting one decade of the rosary during this period that we are apart, combined with a meditation on the daily Gospel Reading. (both can be found by using the links provided in the Links section of my site). Please continue to use you journals.
Learning can be stress-free if you plan ahead. Below you’ll find my assignments schedule, including tests and other assessments. If you have any concerns or questions, check out my office hours and get in touch.
Just as we have been doing in class since the start of Lent, please read the daily Gospel message (links to the Daily Gospel can be found on the Links page of my website) and continue to pray one decade of the Rosary while focusing on the message found in today's Gospel.
For all Religion Classes:
Read Daily Gospel Reading:
Prayer: As we have been doing since the start of Lent. Please pray one decade of the rosary while meditating on the words of the Gospel. (You can find a link on my website)
Meditation: Continue to journal each day on your response to the Gospel. You may want to start a new meditation journal. Be sure to save each daily writing for future reference.
All class assignments will be posted on the students Seesaw account.
Please continue to pray for those most effected by the pandemic and those that continue to offer assistance to all of us by caring for and protecting our community.
Please take advantage of the many options available to participate in the Holy Mass on a regular schedule through the many inline offerings which are being streamed by our wonderful parishes. I have a couple listed on my Links page.
