Learn – Especially about our Blessed Mother this year and about our faith. But also about all academic subjects and how God is a part of all we learn. Bringing our faith into all subjects is ideal!
Oratio – Latin for “prayer” - especially morning Mass, adoration each week, households, before class, before/after sports and other extracurricular and throughout the day in our hearts.
Virtue – Especially learning and practicing the virtues of the month.
Enjoy – God wants us to love life and love everything we do. Enjoy each other, make new friends, enjoy school, enjoy home life...we should truly try and enjoy all things which includes having fun throughout the year!

8th Grade trip to D.C.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-Zo3RMy2mE
Dear school families,
Our school was blessed today (May 7th) with a visit of Bishop Malloy. He celebrated Mass with all the 8th grade classes of the Aurora Deanery and then stopped by to visit and bless the kids in the lunch room, the playground and several of the classrooms. The 1st graders were excited to show him their newly hatched baby chickens and the 2nd graders were excited because he came to bless their 1st Communion articles. I didn't think to take a picture of him with the kids on the playground (I wish I would have because it was quite cute), but I did take some pictures of him with the 1st and 2nd grade. God bless, Msgr.
