8th Graders Participated in the 40 Days For Life Prayer Vigil

Posted on: March 18th, 2015 | School News

Thank you all participating in the 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil. A day full of powerful prayer, where we stood as the last sign of hope before the abortion and first sign of God’s mercy afterword.  Throughout the day, Knights and parish members from both St. Michael and IC held quiet, prayerful vigil.  We had over 60 people praying throughout the day, spanning from dawn( 6:00am)  till  dusk(7:00pm).

We’re very thankful that Fr. Morris led the prayer vigil.  We had approximately 20  St.Micheal’s students praying at noon! WOW!!!  Most were 8th graders.  Our 8th graders have a very strong  Pro-Life stance, with 100% attending the Washington Pro-Life march. We should be proud that these students are actively living their catholic faith with great courage, not merely “sitting on the sidelines” when witnessing an abominable and immoral act being committed. This 8th grade class feels compelled to act, to lead, to take a stand.   A great example for us all.

Do You Have A Desire To Be More Involved With What Your Child is Reading?

Posted on: March 18th, 2015 | School News

Do you have the desire to be more involved with what your child is reading but don’t have the time or the skills necessary to do it? Or do you want to read more yourself but don’t seem to be able to get around to it? You might be interested in being a part of the Disciple of Christ Literature Project. At St. Michael School we have been learning about how to be Disciples of Christ by living the virtuous life. Starting in the 2015-2016 academic school year we will be bringing the Disciple of Christ virtue program into our literature and the way that we read at school. We will start off this endeavor by providing workshops for parents of children who read. You are invited to join us in learning about what makes a good story, how to read in an engaging way, and how to be involved in what your child is reading, all in the light of following Christ as His disciple.

The Disciple of Christ Literature Project is a way for students, faculty, and families to encounter and utilize literature by means of a process which requires higher level thinking and the evaluation of text that will both enliven and enrich the process of reading.

Come to a series of workshops at St. Michael Church to learn more! The workshops will start on Thursday, April 23 at 7:00 p.m. There will be three workshops to start with. These workshops will build the foundation necessary to move forward as a Disciple of Christ in the way you read. Using Michael O’Brien’s literary approach and his Catholic philosophy of reading, we will delve into the different lenses through which we can read.Then we will learn what makes a good story. Lastly, we will do some actual reading together using this method of engaging literature.

Please note that this workshop is for adults only. Please bring your notebook, a bible, and a copy of A Landscape with Dragons by Michael O’Brien. If you don’t already have one, copies will be available for purchase at the workshop. RSVP before April 23 below. We would like to have an idea of how many are coming, but you and your friends can come even if you don’t RSVP!

Message from Deacon Thomas M. Berg, Jr.

Posted on: March 12th, 2015 | School News

On behalf of Bishop Frederick F. Campbell and the Thomas More Society of the Diocese of Columbus, I would like to extend an invitation to you for a unique opportunity: the annual Red Mass, which will take place at St. Joseph Cathedral on Tuesday, May 5th, 2015, at 5:15 p.m. Bishop Campbell will be the principal celebrant and homilist at this special Mass.

This is indeed a rare occasion, probably the only occasion, when young people have the opportunity to witness all three branches of our government together at prayer. While this event is specifically focused upon the judicial branch of government, we nonetheless receive representatives from the legislature and the executive branch. In addition to that, the priest judges of our Diocesan Tribunal will be present and concelebrate the Mass.

I hope you will consider my invitation and that some of your students might be able to attend this event and join with Bishop Campbell in prayer that the inspiration of the Holy Spirit will be with all members of our government as they work for justice and the common good.

If you have any questions or need further information, please feel free to contact me at the chancery office at 614-224-2251.
