NOTES FROM SPIRITUAL COMMISSION - DISCOVER THE HOLY ROSARY - OCTOBER
This month we celebrate the feast of the Holy Rosary. As legend has it, St. Dominic received a visit from our Blessed Mother. She gave him a Rosary and asked him to pray this prayer daily. When you and I pray the Rosary or even a part of it, we are receiving special graces. Moms, dads, and kids, let's pray this prayer or a part of it together every day!

The Rosary is a prayer for all seasons: they mysteries take us through the whole range of human experiences in the light of Christ, from joy to sorrow, death to risen life. Indeed, the Rosary is many things at once: it uses simple prayers but invites profound meditation; it involves mental words and tactile beads (in fact, 'bead' comes from bede, the old English word for 'prayer.'); It is very old yet always fresh; Biblical in both explicit and implicit ways; to be said along or together in the family or religious community; a prayer for the church, home or the road. (excerpt from the Dominican Friars, The Rosary: An Introduction)

THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
Thank you to the many volunteers who helped make Grandparent’s/Special Person’s Day and the Book Fair such a great success!

The oodles of smiling faces on our special visitors and on the students who were able to proudly share their school spoke volumes about how important these treasured activities are. One of the things our special people were able to enjoy with the children was to shop the Scholastic Book Fair. This, too, proved to be very successful not only for getting books into students’ hands, but also for raising over $1,000 to support the Home & School Association’s mission of enhancing our school community. Hats off to all and special thanks to committee chairs, Danielle-Shumate Olson (Grandparent’s/Special Person’s Day) and Julie Buffington and Lisa Hill (Book Fair) and all of their committee members!
