St. Scholastica, Virgin

 

This has been a year of many unexpected surprises and although it is difficult for me to announce that Sandra Duong will not be finishing the school year as our 11-12 Spanish teacher, I am very happy for her as she transitions to a new role teaching full time in a language school in the Bay Area. We will announce our new teacher in next week’s Monday Memo.

 

Last week we were blessed to welcome our bishop, His Excellency Robert Vasa, to our campus. The bishop visited the classrooms and talked to the students about the virtue of hope. Unfortunately, our week ended on a somewhat sad note as Dan Arend was injured in Friday night’s basketball game and will require surgery on his clavicle. Please keep him and the Arend family in your prayers.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, will be a special “white-out” free dress day in support of our final basketball games and graduating seniors. Students are encouraged to wear as much white as possible (with all of the usual modesty stipulations, of course). We’d love to see a packed house at Crosswalk that evening for both the girls and boys games and 6:00 and 7:30 in which we will have a special ceremony to honor our graduating seniors playing their final basketball game for Trinity.

Feb. 13 - Mark Brumley Series on Benedict XVI’s The Spirit of the Liturgy

     Session 4 @ 7PM

What does it mean to worship God? How ought we to understand the Liturgy? If Jesus came to bring “worship in Spirit and truth”, why do so many Christians worship in a particular place (church), at a particular time (Sundays), following a particular pattern of worship (liturgy and ritual)? Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI answers these and other important questions in his classic work, The Spirit of the Liturgy. Explore his answers as Mark Brumley leads a nine-session course based on The Spirit of the Liturgy. Classes continue on Thursday, Feb 13, and will also be held on February, 27March 5, 12, and 19.

Sessions will begin @ 7:00 P.M. and will take place at the school. No charge. Donations gratefully accepted.
