Living Stones on the Pathway to Heaven… Message from the Principal On Monday evening our community gathered in the Parish Activities Center for the performance of the annual Christmas Pageant.  I wish to thank and congratulate our kindergarten, fourth, sixth and eighth grade students for a beautiful presentation of the Nativity story.  After a program of readings and carols, the evening concluded with a living Nativity Scene, portrayed by the students in the 6th grade Theater Arts class.  As the lights grew dim and Ms. Dalusung led the singing of O Come, O Come Emmanuel, those present enjoyed a moment of Advent reflection.  With the lights focused on the image of the Holy Family, a stirring scene was created, providing inspiration for young and old as we excitedly anticipate the … [Read more...]
