We have just begun May, which is probably the busiest month at OLMC. It includes some Mary activities which involves the whole school.
Last Friday, the eighth graders led us in the May Crowning Mass. It begins their march to graduation.
Starting tomorrow, we will gather in the prayer garden each morning after the first bell. The fifth graders will lead us in praying the Rosary – a most fitting way to begin each school day in Mary’s month, at a school dedicated to the Blessed Mother.
On Saturday, May 17th, third graders will receive their First Communion and Confirmation. They have been receiving instructions and will be well prepared to enter into fuller union with the whole Church as they continue their faith journey.
Of course, there are other non-religious celebrations during the month. The kindergartners will present their annual “Stars and Stripes” production on May 14 at 7:00 p.m. Their energy is unbelievable and they always do so wonderfully.
Finally, we conclude the month as we bid good-bye to the Class of 2014 at their graduation on May 28th. It is a night of mixed emotions when they laugh as they reminisce, beam at their success and cry as they realize they have completed an important phase of their lives.
I hope you will be able to join us for some of these events. As a suggestion, if you can do nothing else, consider joining us for the Rosary. It is such a nice way to begin the day.
