HAPPY SUMMER 2015

It is hard to believe that another school year has come to an end.  So many things have happened during this year as we watched our children grow in so many ways.  I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the many sacrifices you make to send your child to Saint Monica School, and for supporting us in all we do.  We could not be the great school we are without your help.
I hope you have a wonderful, restful summer.  It won't be long before we are all packing up our school supplies and heading back to begin once again.  Enjoy this time with your family, relax, have fun!

The World Meeting of Families
Philadelphia 2015 Official Prayer


God and Father of us all,
in Jesus, your Son and our Savior,
You have made us
your sons and daughters
in the family of the Church.

May your grace and love
help our families
in every part of the world
be united to one another
in fidelity to the Gospel.


May the example of the Holy Family,
with the aid of your Holy Spirit,
guide all families, especially those most troubled,
to be homes of communion and prayer
and to always seek your truth and live in your love
through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for us!
