The Sentinel – December 18, 2013

12/18/2013 Principal’s Message This week I wish to share with you a very special prayer intention.  Last week, Mr. Michael D’Eugenio, the husband of Joyce, our administrative assistant, was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.  He will begin chemotherapy this week and continue to receive treatments each Friday in the coming months.  Let us together remember Mr. D’Eugenio and his family in our prayers in a special way during this Advent & Christmas Season.  May they be uplifted and strengthened in the knowledge that so many of us are holding them close in thought and prayer at this time. ****************************************************************************** One of the highlights of my Advent Season each year is walking the hallways and taking a few moments … [Read more...]

The Sentinel – December 4. 2013
