Mass 10.04.19 – Pure and Simple

Today’s mass recognized St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis loved animals, pure and simple.
 
Sometimes the mass message is also pure and simple; like today when Father reminded our students that we are called to love God and His creation. Everything we have, God created. He created the universe, the plants, animals, us… EVERYTHING that we can see or touch. As Christians we are called to love God and each other and His creations. It’s that simple. #massmessage #love #itsthatsimple #calledtobeaSAINT

Mass 09.27.19 – More Than Just Talking

Did you know we can communicate in other ways than just talking? Our actions, expressions, and words work together to tell people what we are thinking or feeling.

In today’s readings, Jesus asked “who do you say I am?” (Matthew 16:13) Our students know him as: – someone that does great things – someone that saves – a healer – a savior that came back from the dead
 
His actions told us just as much about Jesus did as the stories that he told.
 
Our actions can tell people about how we are as Christians, too. How do people know that we know Christ? – by going to St. Alphonsus Catholic School – by showing love – by serving people – by going to church
 
Together, Deacon and our students decided that ultimately it is our actions outside the church by serving and loving people that is best example of being a Christian. #lotsoftalkingatmasstoday #itswhathappensoutsidethatmatters #calledtobeaSAINT #massmessage

Mass 09.20.19 – Going on a Treasure Hunt

Father Thomas took our students on a treasure hunt today. Here are a few things they talked about in mass to help continue the conversation at home:
 
– A treasure is something of value (or valued) that we keep carefully.
– What are things that we treasure? Our family. Our friends.  Our priests. Our parents. Our children.
– These are treasured items because we love them, yes, but they hold great value in what they teach/give back to us.
– People we care about teach us how to love each other, love God, love our Church, how to pray, and how to live faithfully.
– While these people we treasure are a great gift from God, we need to remember that we all seek the ultimate treasure – eternal life.
– Our faith is the roadmap to living a treasured life in Heaven.
