Message from the Principal

“Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, GRACE, and gratitude.” – Denis Waitley


Thanksgiving is just a few days away and it is important for us to take this time to reflect on the happiness we have experienced in our lives and give thanks to God for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us. God reveals Himself to us in the forms of blessings, little moments of GRACE that remind us that we are never really alone. These are the experiences and moments, both easy and challenging that touch our lives and expand our capacity to love.


On Thanksgiving, we sit down together and offer thanksgiving in the form of prayer or GRACE to God. GRACE.  In Latin it is gratia or gratus. A beautiful word in itself, but its meaning holds the most beauty. GRACE is the divine means of help or strength, given through the bounteous mercy and love of Jesus Christ.


Thank you, students for the moments of GRACE you share with each other, your teachers, the staff, and the administration. Thank you, parents for your constant support and for sharing your gifts and talents with our community. Thank you, faculty and staff for your AMAZING ability to fill each of our days with GRACE and for inviting us daily to the bountiful table of our Lord. Life holds many blessings, thank you for being one of them!


Many Blessings and Thanksgiving,

Mrs. Lutz
