Wednesday PIE 2.8.17

February 8, 2017

February is the month dedicated to the Holy Family. February gives us a space of time between the Christmas celebrations and the increased focus on Jesus’s public life and ministry, which occurs in Lent. It is a transition from the feast of Christmas to the fasting of Lent. Therefore, traditionally February has become a time to recall the Holy Family; within the Holy Family is where Jesus spent the time between his birth and embarking on his public journey. We will be offering our February prayer up for the families of our fifth graders. We would like our fifth graders to bring in pictures of their family members so we can display them on our bulletin board.

Pope Francis recited this Prayer to the Holy Family

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendor of true love,
to you we turn with trust. Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families
too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the
Gospel and small domestic Churches. Holy Family of Nazareth, may
families never again experience violence, rejection and division: may all
who have been hurt and scandalized find ready comfort and healing. Holy
Family of Nazareth, make us once more mindful of the sacredness and
inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan. Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.

Our Pajama Day was a huge success for St. Jude’s Hospital. We raised $200.00 including donations from the movie night.
Thank you to all who helped make Friday’s movie night a resounding success. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Angel Points update: 28 of the 68 families have already attained their 30 hours. Four more families attained 30 hours since December 31.
