What an amazing first week back in school! We did have a few bumps in the road as we got adjusted to over 100 students in the building for the first time ever, but we are all settling into a nice routine. We finished the week off with our “Mass of the Holy Spirit” and brought the Light of Christ into our school and blessed all students and classrooms. Thank you Archbishop Emeritus Schwietz for joining us in this proud annual tradition.
Our soccer teams will put their hard practice into competition next week, so I hope you will consider coming down to Kincaid turf field, grabbing a YETI hot dog for dinner, and cheering on our junior high and high school Archangels!
Have a blessed and safe weekend!
Summer Blessing for Families
May we make our homes places of relaxation,
joy, love, peace and safety.
May we be generous and considerate,
not thinking only about ourselves,
but helping others enjoy the blessings of the summertime. Lord God, Creator of all things,
guide our steps and strengthen our hearts
during these months of summer and vacation days. Grant us refreshment of mind and body.
May we constantly strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our loved ones and in the world around us as we enjoy the warm days of summertime.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Thank you all for being so kind and welcoming as I slowly but surely transition into Anne Gore’s position. I have big shoes to ll but with the grace of God and everyone’s willingness to help, I know I am in good hands. I am so excited to be here and I thank God daily for this blessed opportunity to work here. I look forward to the rest of the school year as I get to meet all parents and students. Please feel free to email me with any questions. Thank you all again.
