It seems like we just started the school year yesterday, however September has closed and the second month has already begun! At this time, we would like to extend a sincere thanks to all parents and guardians who attended our Parent Program Evening “Meet the Teacher Night”! It was wonderful to see such a large turnout and to meet many of you for the first time. We would also like to invite all parents and guardians to attend our opening School Advisory Council Meeting on Oct 7th at 6:30 pm in the school library. This is your opportunity to provide input on educational topics affecting the school and our district as well as to play a greater role in the school community.
We thank Thee Lord with hearts filled with gratitude.
We thank You, Lord our God, for gifting us with good friends.
We are grateful for all those persons in our lives who have chosen us to be
their friends for truly this is a rich and sacred trust.
By the sacrament of friendship, we share our mutual journeys with You.
Sower for All Love and Life,
In sharing, we find our happiness expanded and our sorrow lightened, and, for this blessing, we are grateful.
We prayerfully rejoice that your Son, Jesus has called each of us from the
position of servants to the honor of being His friends.
Blessed are You, God of Unity, for entering our lives, through friendship.
Make us worthy of such a gift by being faithful but non-progressive, by being loyal and
honest and by being ever grateful for the gift of good friends.
Blessed are You, Lord our God who gifts us with the joys of friendship.
As we look forward to the month of October and the many activities and celebrations we have planned, we realize that it is also a time of Thanksgiving. It is a time of family, a time of sharing and a time of giving thanks. The staff of Our Lady of Mount Carmel would like to wish our school community a blessed and safe Thanksgiving.
