Early Dismissal: 10/24 at 12pm

Due to the expected high temperatures in Oceanside, we will have a noon dismissal on Tuesday, 10/24. We will follow rainy day procedures for dismissal (parents will come to the classrooms to pick up their children). There will be no Star Care tomorrow afternoon.

Thank you for your support in ensuring the safety of our students. If picking up your child at noon will be a hardship, you are welcome to pick them up at any time in the morning (before noon), or have them stay home for the day. If your decision is to not have your child attend school, please send in a note and the absence will not be counted.

Please pray for those who do not have shelter and for those affected by the heat.

Children’s Choir

All kids from 2nd Grade to 12th Grade are invited to join our Children Choir! We will sing at Mass once a month. The first Mass we sing at will be on Sunday, October 29th at 10:00 AM.  Our Pastor would love to have your participation. Simply come to our first rehearsal on Wednesday, October 11th at 6:00pm, Children Choir Flyer 10-2017, and sing!  PLEASE bring a ½” black binder to rehearsal to keep your music organized.

We’d love to hear your young voice praise our Lord at Mass!

Parents in Prayer

Could you use a miracle in your life? Pope Francis reminds us that “prayer makes miracles”! Join Parents in Prayer each Monday morning at 8am in the school chapel (across from the preschool office), where your intentions will be lifted up through the saying of a rosary. If you’re new to saying the rosary, guides and rosaries are available. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to get to know other families at our school. We look forward to having you join us in prayer!

Jeans for Jesus are Back!

It’s time for Jeans for Jesus! The third Thursday of the month, your child has the opportunity to support a charitable cause selected by our school community. This Thursday, September 21, will be our first Jeans for Jesus this school year. In September, we will be supporting Catholic Charities Hurricane Relief. To participate, have your child bring $2 *and* wear their favorite jeans! (…along with appropriate shirts, socks, and shoes). Please note that denim shorts and skirts are not allowed. All donations are tax deductible.

Serve the Lord with Gladness!

Your child is invited to become an altar server at our Parish. It’s a wonderful way to have your child participate actively in the Mass, and be a witness to their classmates! To learn more about how your child can serve at the Table of the Lord, please see the Altar Server form or contact Amy Nelson at stmarysministers@hotmail.com.
