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.

Easter Bunny

Easter Egg HuntThe Easter Bunny was seen today at our Easter Egg Hunt!  The students had fun looking for the hidden eggs, eating their candy and, of course, finding the gold and silver eggs!  Although we have had fun with the Easter Bunny, we have been sure to teach and celebrate the TRUE MEANING of Easter – JESUS!  Each class has studied and learned about Holy Week and the 7th & 8th grades had the Passover Meal this morning.

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.

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.)

(It was a lot of fun!)
