Principal's Message

February 27, 2017

The 2017 Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday on March 1, 2017. Pope Francis reminds us,
"Lent is a favorable season for opening the doors to all those in need and recognizing in them the face of Christ."

The U.S.C.C. of Bishops offers us this Lenten mantra. “Give up! Take up! Lift up!” Quite often, many of the people that I speak with during Lent choose something to “give up”.  It is something that I have always practiced, too. Pope Francis reminds us that sacrifice without adding value to another’s life is sacrifice without meaning.  He offers this simple quote from Matthew as a redirection of our Lenten sacrifice. “I desire mercy, and not sacrifice” (Mt 9:13).

Pope Francis reminds us that there is a connection between the corporal works of mercy and the spiritual works of mercy. Instead of separating the works of mercy, we must look for opportunities to connect our own personal sacrifice and prayer to touch and change the lives of those who have needs like food, shelter, or any other kind of help. We are called to share God’s Mercy unsparingly.

It is through our practice of the corporal and spiritual works of mercy that we will humbly live as God calls us- to practice our Faith, to live with and provide Hope for others and Love all of God’s creations fully and unselfishly.

Peacefully yours,

Mr. Connell

Pre-K - 2nd grade 

Field trip to the Patchogue Theater

Our angels in the younger grades had a wonderful time attending a play at the nearby Patchogue Theater called "Pete the Cat." This beloved children's book series written by Eric Litwin came alive for our students on stage. The children were also in good spirits on their walk to and from the theater knowing they were going to get to enjoy a fabulous show! How fortunate our students are to have a local treasure, The Patchogue Theater, so close to our school!
