Word from the Principal   (Please check out weekly newsletter can be found in links)

This week we traveled to Columbus Grove St. Anthony to celebrate Catholic Schools week with St. Peter and Paul and St. Anthony’s school.  The students enjoyed a day beginning with Mass, lunch and a ventriloquist.  It was a beautiful day to celebrate Catholic Schools Week.

Tuition meetings to discuss the 2019 – 2020 school year will take place on Tuesday, February 19th.  If you are unable to attend please contact the office at 419-943-2801.

Have you applied for the NWOSF scholarship?  If not, please do so.

March 8th the public school will be in session.  St. Mary’s students will not be in session that day as there is professional development scheduled for the teachers.

PARENTS and GUARDIANS – IF YOUR CHILD HAS A CHANGE IN TRANSPORTATION THE STUDENT MUST HAVE A NOTE OR A PHONE CALL TO THE SCHOOL OR TEACHER.  OTHERWISE THE STUDENT WILL FOLLOW THE MODE OF TRANSPORTATION FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR.  THIS IS FOR THE SAFETY OF THE STUDENTS.  THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

Continued blessings to you and your family.

God Bless,

Michelle Knippen

February Prayer of the Month

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Amen.

 

March Prayer of the Month

We fly to your patronage, O Holy Mother of God.  Despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us from all dangers, O ever Glorious and Blessed Virgin.  Amen

April Prayer of the Month

The Protection Prayer

Lord we beg you to visit this house and banish from it all the deadly power of the enemy.  May your holy angels dwell here to keep us in peace and May your blessings be upon us always.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

May Prayer of the Month

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.
