Campus Ministry:

This week our virtue theme is ZEAL – The strength to pursue an objective with tremendous energy and enthusiasm. ZEAL is necessary for everything in life! We need ZEAL to pursue our objectives with energy and enthusiasm if we expect to succeed, especially when things get difficult. Being a zealot for Christ means we love all people with fervor, even our opponents!

Pope St. Gregory the Great (590-604): “No sacrifice is more acceptable to God than zeal for souls.”

  • Tomorrow at our 8 a.m. Mass, seniors Caleb, Vanessa, and Helene will pass the Light of Christ over to juniors Frankie and Tommy. This beautiful tradition symbolizes the passing on of Servant Leadership from our senior class to our junior class.

  • Congratulations to our seniors for completing seniors projects and presentations!

  • Congratulations to Leyla on her Confirmation. Leyla was inadvertently omitted from last week’s congratulatory announcement!

  • May 7 we will have the May Crowning and procession to Mary’s grotto at the 8 a.m. Mass. Please send in flowers to put beside the grotto.

Archangel Sports:

Futsol continues after school. The only new news here is that on Tuesdays and Thursdays after Jr. High practice, there will be a bus run to SEAS. Students will wait here at the school for just a bit and depart around 2:45, for SEAS arrival at 3:00p. If parents could be there then/3:00p to scoop kids into cars (we can’t just leave them in the parking lot); the Lumen Bus can get out of the way of SEAS traffic.

The bus will drop kids in the UPPER parking lot, please meet them there. Students involved with choir and/or track practice are also welcome to ride the bus.

May 3rd, after school running club will start up for both Jr. High & High School students.  Runners should bring lunch, a water bottle and weather appropriate gear for outdoor practice. More details to follow.

Front Office News:

Dads & students, plan ahead for Mother’s Day on Sunday May 9th by pre-ordering a scrumptious  cheesecake, deliciously created in the kitchen of our Spanish II teacher Deacon Gus and his wife Christina Azpilcueta! Available for pick up on Friday, May 7th after school, the cost is $20 and only 25 will be made. The Azpilcueta’s are donating all proceeds back to the school – THANK YOU Deacon Gus & Christina! Pre-pay by cash or check in the Front Office.
