Dear Parents,

I hope all of you and your children are in good health!  We are quickly approaching Catholic Schools Week. January 31-February 6.  In the next two weeks, you will be receiving information on all the events and you will also find the event information on the website and on Facebook!  Stay tuned!

Many of us know the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

In the spirit of Catholic Schools Week I am writing about how we as a Catholic School imbue our students with values that will guide them through life.  St. Francis's prayer, in a sense, sums up how the faculty and staff at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School lead our students through their education and instill our Catholic values along the way.  We accomplish this by working with students on their academics and invest in their learning.  Yet, other areas that sometimes go unnoticed include how teachers guide students through their social-emotional needs, form positive behavior for self and others, provide a sense of belonging, and support all of the extra and co-curricular activities that students are engaged in. Our students will be ready for high school, college, and life!

Below is the Prayer of St. Francis followed by what students learn and understand.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
     To love and respect others;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;              
     That hate and hurt does not lead to like or being liked;
where there is injury, pardon;  
     To forgive and be forgiven;
where there is doubt, faith;
     To trust in God and each other;
where there is despair, hope;   
     That all problems have solutions;
where there is darkness, light;  
     Trust in God's light grows trust in others;
where there is sadness, joy;
     Turning sadness into joy through problem-solving;

...consoled as to console;             
     Comfort other students when they need it;
to be understood as to understand;
     Knowledge comes from understanding content and each other;
to be loved as to love.  
     Loving and respecting others leads to accepting differences;
For it is in giving that we receive;
     Inner joy is felt when students learn how to give;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
     Forgiving others is a hard lesson to learn but most fulfilling;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.   
      Culminating in a life time of grace and eternal life.         
          
 

God bless you and your children,
Carla
God, our Father, I offer you my day. I offer you my prayers, thoughts, words, actions, joys, and sufferings in union with the Heart of Jesus, who continues to offer Himself in the Eucharist for the salvation of the world. May the Holy Spirit who guided Jesus, be my guide and my strength today so that I may witness to your love. With Mary, the mother of our Lord and the Church, I pray for all Apostles of Prayer and for the prayer intentions proposed by the Holy Father this month. Amen.
