Community of Faith – October 2016
Third Annual Family Mass
The St. Lucy’s community was pleased to celebrate our third annual Family Mass on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in the St. Lucy’s amphitheater. Approximately 200 faculty, staff, students and family members attended the celebration. Father Cronin from Damien High School was the celebrant and he preached a beautiful message on “One in Heart and Mind.” It was truly a blessing to come together in community for prayer and Holy Eucharist. After mass the festivities continued with socializing and cookies being served. Come and join us next year!
Day of the Dead Celebration
For the month of October our prayer room on the first level will be honoring Dia de los Muertos. Seniors from Mrs. Huitron’s religion class have decorated the prayer room to honor our dead. Stop in and spend some time in prayer and reflection.
Be The Match Kits
Our KIWINs club is continuing their service project of helping the City of Hope by assembling “Be The Match Kits.” An alumnus who was successfully treated at the City of Hope started this project. On Thursdays after school approximately 15-20 KIWINs members give their time to help with the assembly. We are partners in helping to save lives.
Junior Class Retreat
On Wednesday, September 28, the Junior Class gathered to spend the day reflecting, relaxing, and reconnecting. The theme of “Kindness” provided the opportunity to address and discuss how women of all ages hurt one another through destructive unkind behavior and language. While there was time for fun and music, the retreat allowed for deep sharing and reconciling among the whole class. The retreat peer leaders and class members are to be commended on their courage to open up the discussion and prayerfully supporting one other.
Pope Benedict XVI has proclaimed 2012-2013 as the A Year of Faith. Catholics throughout the world are called to pray, study, do outreach, and evangelize as joy-filled witnesses to the message of Jesus Christ. Each month, the Religion department will sponsor activities to encourage these goals.
Keep watching for our monthly updates during the upcoming new year!
Welcome Pope Francis I! To send our new leader their best wishes, our ASB gave students the opportunity to write messages of prayer and appreciation in a book which will be sent to the Vatican during the month of April.
