Our school will be closed for Christmas Break from Monday, December 18, 2017 through Tuesday, January 2, 2018. School resumes on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. We wish you and yours a beautiful Christmas season and New Year!
We invite you and your family to attend Christmas Eve or Christmas Day Mass; multiple Mass times are available. Come home for Christmas to St. Mary, Star of the Sea!
Our students will be walking to St. Mary’s church on Friday as we celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a Holy Day of Obligation. All families are invited to attend Mass with their child; we will begin walking at 11:40am and attending Mass at 12:10pm. Should you not be able to make this time with your child, other Mass times are available.
Why do we celebrate Mary’s conception? Church doctrine teaches us that God preserved Mary from original sin from the moment she was conceived; it was defined as a dogma of the Roman Catholic Church in 1854.
