Grace Notes for August 10

Hallelujah

We focus on a word every two months, weaving the sentiment of the word throughout our culture and curriculum. Father Mark refers to the words during his homilies at our weekly School Mass, connecting the words to Gospel readings.  The words are mindfully chosen, connected to faith and learning.

Sept/Oct       FORTITUDE:  strength, perseverance, stamina to begin our year

Nov/Dec       SERVE:  Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas

Jan/Feb        DIGNITY:  Dr. Martin Luther King’s message

March/April  HARMONY:  Lent, Easter

May/June     CURIOSITY:  Care for the Earth, hands on science projects

In addition, we choose a schoolwide theme to shape and guide our year.  Our theme for the 2023-2023 school year is:

Hallelujah

(Praise, Joy, Thanks)
