In Honor of the Immaculate Heart
O heart of Mary, mother of God, and our mother; heart most worthy of love, in which the adorable Trinity is ever well-pleased, worthy of the veneration and love of all the angels and of all men; heart most like to the Heart of Jesus, of which thou art the perfect image; heart, full of goodness, ever compassionate toward our miseries; deign to melt our icy hearts and grant that they may be wholly changed into the likeness of the Heart of Jesus, our divine Savior. Pour into them the love of thy virtues, enkindle in them that divine fire with which thou thyself dost ever burn. In thee let Holy Church find a safe shelter; protect her and be her dearest refuge, her tower of strength, impregnable against every assault of her enemies. Be thou the way which leads to Jesus, and the channel, through which we receive all the graces needful for our salvation. Be our refuge in time of trouble, our solace in the midst of trial, our strength against temptation, our haven in persecution, our present help in every danger and especially at the hour of death, when all hell shall let loose against us its legions to snatch away our souls, at that dread moment, that hour so full of fear, whereon our eternity depends. Ah, then most tender virgin, make us to feel the sweetness of thy motherly heart, and the might of thine intercession with Jesus, and open to us a safe refuge in that very fountain of mercy, whence we may come to praise Him with thee in paradise, world without end. Amen.
Dear Parents or Legal Guardians,
We continue to pray that you are all doing well and staying safe!
Friday, May 1 st the Archdiocese sent protocols on what will happen when things start
opening up. Regarding religious formation, I believe, that it is apparent we no longer
need to wait and must become proactive as the second expectation clearly states, “You
will need to keep six feet of distance between anyone not in your household for the
foreseeable future of the church.” Thus, we cannot reopen our classrooms for the
remainder of this school year.
Therefore, we will initiate our Google Classroom for First Holy Communion which will
be activated this Friday, May 8th. We have set up one classroom online to supplement
the requirements needed for successfully completing your religious formation lessons
Realizing that our candidates are already working on their regular school assignments,
either on-line or physical packages (4 academics along with at least 2 exploratory
classes), we will modify our curriculum for the 8 weeks of instruction. However, we will
incorporating the lessons into six weeks since the last two weeks are scheduled for
make-ups, procession rehearsal and end-of-the-year celebration (classroom party).

Respectfully yours in Christ,
Fr. Fred and the Catechetical Staff
