Principal’s Update:

Many thanks to everyone who submitted feedback to our Cognia survey, our athletic program survey, and our School Crest Challenge voting. Tomorrow, we will close all of these means to provide us comments, so if you haven’t done so already, please give us your thoughts!

As tradition, I’ll be sending out an End of the Year letter to all our families next week highlighting a number of items, so please look for that in your email inbox. A couple of timely reminders:

  • Please bring your spring cleaning items down to the school next week to support our annual GarageSale! Thanks to your generous donations of used items, we have made an average of $6000-8000 for our school over two days!
  • If you are in need of additional financial assistance to help reduce tuition going into next year, please see the solicitation for a $1000 Reetz Foundation scholarship below AND take a look at our website at: https://www.lumenchristiak.com/tuition-discounts/. Applications are due soon!

    This has been a challenging and awesome year, and another page in our proud Lumen history. We wish all our students and our families a restful and enjoyable summer break! We look forward to seeing everyone in the fall! On behalf of my family, and the entire school staff, may God bless you and keep you safe this summer!

Happy Birthday to Kyle Boquet on Saturday!

Summer is here! It is with deep appreciation and humility that I thank you for the gift of your children here at Lumen Christi. Each student and family brings light to my heart and to our Lumen community. I wish each of you a restful, faith-filled and adventurous summer. Please know that I am available throughout the summer if I can be of assistance to you. Feel free to email me at any time eloeffler@lumenchristiak.com. I check email regularly. Happy summer!

Fr. Stu is still playing; information is below.

Parents – The movie Fr. Stu came out a few weeks ago. It is the remarkable true story of the conversion of a boxer who was called to the priesthood. It is rated R due to a LOT of foul language and sonme innuendo, but has a great message for our teens and young adults.

Below is the link to a short conversation between Fr. Mike Schmidt and Mark Wahlberg, who plays Fr. Stu.

Here is another neat interview with Mark Wahlberg:

A Family Blessing

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.
Amen.
