Uniform Donations for Haiti: PLEASE HELP!

Posted on: October 27th, 2016 | School News

A member of the SMC parish will be making a mission trip to Haiti in January. Click here to learn more about the program: One of the needs is for school uniforms for the children. We are hoping that parents will take a few minutes to look in drawers and closets and pull out any uniform items which no longer fit, are maybe a little dingy, or are just no longer needed. These items can be sent to school to be shared with the children of Haiti who have suffered greatly over the past few years from the devastating earth quake in 2010 to the more recent hurricane just a few weeks ago. Many school children do not have uniforms and wear the same clothes to school each day. They may even sleep in their clothes.

 We are hoping to receive donations by Friday, November 4th.  Thank you for your help!!

Gospel Reflection for Luke 13:31-35

Posted on: October 27th, 2016 | School News

In today’s Gospel, Jesus speaks with very clear words about His mission on earth, which was to draw us to Himself, through the love He shows us in his Passion and death. Jesus uses the image of a hen gathering her brood under her wings to describe the way in which He calls us to be close to Him and safe in His care. Today, let us take some time now to stop, be silent and think about the love that Jesus has for us. Let us really believe His love is so great that He is constantly thinking of how He can be close to us and give us the comfort of His friendship and presence. Jesus is the most loyal friend we will ever have. If we don’t know this yet, let us ask God for the grace to believe it and know what His love and faithfulness to us feels like. Today, let us practice the virtue of gratitude. For even if we don’t feel God’s closeness and love, God’s is still with us. Let us remember to thank God today for the gift of His Love. As we go about our day, let us remember to say at least once in our hearts, thank you God for your love.

Gospel reflection for Luke 12:49-53

Posted on: October 20th, 2016 | School News

In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples about His mission “to set the earth on fire.” Jesus is speaking about a spiritual fire that is blazing and gives warmth to our hearts. This spiritual fire, meant to spread across the earth, is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Jesus’ gift to each of us. The Holy Spirit helps us overcome our weaknesses and gives us the boldness and courage we need to make good choices and accomplish great deeds for God. Jesus also talks about the division that takes place when people are divided and disagree with each other. The Holy Spirit helps us know when and how to take sides when problems come up. The Holy Spirit helps us put our relationship to God first, above everything and everyone else, because this leads to our good and the good of others. Today, let us ask for this gift of the Holy Spirit, so we can help spread the spiritual fire of true goodness on earth. Let us ask Mary, who was filled with the Holy Spirt, to pray for us, that we too may have the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Gospel Reflection for Luke 12:13-21

Posted on: October 17th, 2016 | School News

In today’s Gospel, we hear the parable of the rich fool who said to himself “eat, drink and be merry!” He lived for himself and for the present moment. He did not think about sharing with others. Jesus tells us that although the man had many possessions, he was not rich in what matters to God. What matters to God is that we put love of our neighbor before ourselves, and especially before our own possessions. We don’t want to be hoarders who care more about objects than the people around us who might be in need. Can you think about times in our day that we can share with others? Perhaps at lunch or recess? Today, let us practice the virtues of generosity and foresight, which is thinking ahead about our actions. Let us be generous to one another as we all try to practice more virtue together.

Signs of Suicide Program for Parents – Offered by St. Francis DeSales HS

Posted on: October 15th, 2016 | School News

St. Francis DeSales High School, in collaboration with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, is providing training for all students called Signs of Suicide. The Signs of Suicide Prevention Program (SOS) is a school based suicide prevention program supported by SAMHSA. The goal of the curriculum is to prevent and reduce suicidal behavior by expanding the safety net for students experiencing mental and emotional distress. SOS is a nationally known suicide prevention program that parents and schools have found to be a very positive experience. It reduces the stigma of depression and lets students and adults know that they are capable of helping students in need of support. A program for parents will be offered on Monday, October 24 at 7pm in the SFD Little Theater.
