Principal’s Message: Week of May 13, 2018

In Preparation for the Pentecost

[Hidden image]

Dear Families of St. Luke’s,

I hope and pray the moms of our school & parish had a lovely Mother’s Day Weekend! As I write this we have only ten days of school left in the 2017-2018 school year- where has the time gone? This week many of us will be able to hear our 8th graders giving a profile of their time as a St. Luke student!  Some have been with us since pre-school!!

What would happen if we carried the Spirit of Christ into the sinful structures of the world? What if we brought the Spirit of Christ into the dead bones of our broken relationships among races and sexes and cultures and regions of the world? Wouldn't those dead bones rise to life, as in Ezekiel’s prophecy, if we were able to breathe into them the Spirit of Christ!

Paul wrote to the Romans that “all creation groans and is in agony.” We long for unity, and so we pray that the Spirit may “unite the races and nations on earth and disperse the divisions of word and tongue.” We Christians “have been given to drink of the one Spirit,” whom the sequence names “Father of the poor.” When we shall have done away with the human divisions represented by the poor, then, indeed, the Spirit shall have renewed the face of the earth, and we shall be able to say to people, as Jesus did, “Peace be with you.”

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Field Day 2018

Each student in Kindergarten through 6th grade will be assigned a team with a 7th grade team captain. Student's compete against other teams in friendly team building games. Everyone will meet back in their classrooms, say their goodbyes and receive their final report card. It is a noon dismissal and extended daycare is not provided. It's truly a great way to end our school year and the kids have a blast!
