All Schools Mass

Today, our 3rd-8th grade students went to the Catholic Pastoral Center for All Schools Mass in Nashville.  They had the privilege to hear Bishop J. Mark Spalding, the new Diocese of Nashville Bishop.  It will be the first time most of them have ever had the opportunity to celebrate mass with a bishop.

Solar Eclipse @ SHS

We had a great time experiencing the Solar Eclipse @ SHS today.  As junior scientists, we listened and observed the difference in the environment during the eclipse.  And, of course, it was TOTALLY AWESOME to see the eclipse!

Resurrection Rolls in Pre-K

Resurrection RollsWe made Resurrection Rolls in Pre-K today for Easter. You wrap a big marshmallow in a crescent roll and when you bake it, the marshmallow disappears. It represents the Empty Tomb on Easter Sunday. Before you roll Jesus (the marshmallow) in the tomb (roll), you anoint Him with oils (melted butter) and spices (cinnamon and sugar). Then when you open the tomb, it is empty.

Sacrament of Baptism

Cara Lee Forsythe's baptismThis morning as part of our Children’s Mass, Cara Lee Forsythe received the Sacrament of Baptism.  It is always such a special occasion to see our young students choosing the Walk of Faith set before them and following Him.

Dude, You Hear What I Hear?

dude-you-hear-what-i-hear-imageTONIGHT is our Christmas Play!  We are so excited and looking forward to helping others understand that Christmas isn’t about a guy named Felix Navidad, how grandma got run over by a reindeer or even the 40% shopping sales at Mondo-Mart, but about a baby named Jesus who came to save us ALL!
So, come join us tonight in the gymnasium at 6:30 P.M. and hear the TRUE meaning of Christmas! (The gym doors will open at 6:00 P.M.)

Faith Walk

7-8-faith-walkAs part of our study of Mary’s example of total faith in God by saying “Yes” to being the mother of Jesus at the Annunciation with the Angel Gabriel, the 7th/8th grade students  participated in a faith walk in which one student was assigned to lead another blindfolded through obstacles only using words. The students got a small glimpse at was it is like to have “blind  faith” and also found out that being the leader is not so easy either!
