For in six days Yahweh made the heavens, earth and sea and all that these contain, but on the seventh day he rested; that is why Yahweh has blessed the Sabbath day and made it sacred. Exodus 20:11

Dear Families,

My social media page sends me daily reminders of what happened on that day in years past – our memories. Often these make me smile and even a little wistful as I look at my children’s chubby, baby faces. Their pictures remind me of how much they have grown in these short years. Another thing that it reminds me of is just how tired my husband and I were when they were little. The days were filled with so many activities and day-to-day chores that they just started to flow into each other. Now, as our children are a bit older, I do get moments of peace and rest. I miss the busyness that babies and toddlers bring and wouldn’t trade it for anything but I am learning to enjoy the quiet moments.

In the first reading from Exodus this Sunday, we are reminded that in the creation story, God blessed the Sabbath day. He made a day of rest, a day for prayer and spending time with our Creator. We can take in the quiet moments and allow ourselves to be present with Him and with our loved ones. One day, these memories that have we have will be our comfort and our faith that will get us through the tough times.

Yours In Christ,

Mrs. Maria Fonseca

Grade Four – Reading Challenge

On March 2nd, the Reading Link Challenge teams (The Shamrock Readers and The Celtic Book Masters) competed in our in-school challenge! Both teams participated virtually via Zoom. This was a first for the teams but they adapted quickly and made the best of it. The teams both did really well and it was a close race. Ultimately, The Shamrock Readers were victorious and they will be going on to compete in the Library Challenge on April 21st. Good Luck!!!
