Thank you so very, very, very much to everyone who helped in any way to make our School Mass at which we honor our First Communicants so special for our 2nd graders and for our entire congregation. Special thanks goes to Mrs. Agnew, Mrs. Piccola, Mrs. Chanelli, Mrs. Ozaki, Mrs. Lang, and Mrs. Rosko for working with the 2nd grade classes to prepare for today's Mass. Having such mature and capable 6th grade Cantors and 5th Grade "Communion Choir" members was a tremendous help. There was a lot to keep track of during Mass, and knowing that there were 18 students who could stay on top of all of the details and keep things going smoothly without having to be spoken to by an adult was impressive and such a blessing. THANK YOU!!!
Our last School Mass for the 2014/2015 School Year will be next Thursday, May 28th. We will be returning to Ordinary Time for that Mass, and our Mass Parts will change back to the Mass of Renewal. Our liturgical color will be green. The Daily Mass Readings for May 28th, the Thursday of the 8th Week in Ordinary Time are on the URL below:
We will be doing something a little different with our Responsorial Psalm Refrain. One of our 7th graders, Maria, will be reading the entire Responsorial Psalm in Spanish. We will be singing the Refrain in Spanish as well. The phrase will be sung twice each time we sing it. In English, the Refrain is: "By the word of the Lord the heavens were made." [The Spanish Refrain translated more closely means: "The word of God made the heavens."]
La palabra de Dios hizo los cielos.
La palabra de Dios hizo los cielos.
Speci al blessings and prayers to our new graduates of STMM, the Class of 2015, and to our First Communicants in the 2nd grade.
May everyone have a good Memorial Day weekend. Please remember in your prayers those men and women in our armed forces who have given their lives for our country. May we never take for granted the many freedoms that we enjoy each day, living in the United States of America.
Parents and other family members are always welcome at our school Mass.
