Mrs. Lisa Wightman’s Message

Posted on: April 28th, 2016 | School News


Dear St. Michael’s friends,

I am writing to let you know that I will be retiring at the end of this school year.  I have been a counselor for 31 years and a teacher before that, so I have spent many years in education!  The last 21 years at St. Michael have been especially important to me.  Having grown up going to Catholic schools it is wonderful that I finished my career in a Catholic school.  The support and love I have received from the families and fellow staff at school has been truly amazing.  It is a wonderful thing to be in such a special place for so long and get to see students grow…and then see their children come to school!  I will treasure the memories I have of all of you.

Lisa Wightman, Counselor

Our New Playground’s Blessing and Debut

Posted on: April 28th, 2016 | School News


Thank you for all you have done and continue to offer as we near our playground’s completion and debut.  It is exciting!   It seems as if all the factors, and, we hope weather, are pointing us to a Friday readiness for the children’s first play.   Let us thank God!

The Blessing of the New Playground at St. Michael will take place on Friday, April 29, 2016, the Feast of St. Catherine of Siena at 9:00 a.m. (following the 8:15 a.m. Mass).  All are invited to attend this brief ceremony.

Members of The Catholic Foundation, who provided the $22,000 grant for the project and Tim Puet from The Catholic Times have been invited and are pleased to join us to for the celebration.   We look forward to the opportunity to recognize and express our gratitude to our parents and benefactors who are making this moment possible.

We are also setting aside additional time on Friday for the children to play and enjoy the playground’s first day – what a great way to also enjoy the feast day of a great Dominican saint and Doctor of the Church.

Thank you to all who have so generously contributed to this enduring gift for the children. (And thank you for the work still to come this week!)   The playground is fast becoming a tangible monument to the great partnership taking place in our school community to bring joy to the children.

Gospel Reflection for John 6:52-59

Posted on: April 15th, 2016 | School News


In today’s Gospel, Jesus speaks of His Gift of Self to us in the Holy Eucharist. He tells us those who eat His Flesh and drink His Blood have life within them, remain in Him and have eternal life. Jesus uses strong, clear words to tell us that His Body and Blood bring us eternal life. Jesus wants us to know we are never alone. He remains with us in the Holy Eucharist to help us with His grace and loving presence throughout our life. With Jesus, we have the strength to overcome weakness and sin. Jesus knows how each of us is made and what we need, what our joys and sorrows are like. He knows we need a Friend who will always be there to give us support and encouragement. Jesus, in the Holy Eucharist, is that dependable Friend we can count on. He always welcomes us and accepts us as we are. Today, let us give thanks for the friendship of Jesus. Let us practice the virtue of gratitude which is a thankful disposition of mind and heart. Let us take a moment now, in the silence of our hearts to thank Jesus for His friendship….. let us now give thanks to Jesus for the gift of His Presence in the Holy Eucharist. Even if we cannot yet receive Jesus, let us thank Him for the grace of His Presence and the healing He brings to millions around the world each day at Holy Mass.
