Dear OLMC Community,

Catholic Education Arizona Scholarship is due by April 15th. PLEASE take the time to complete the application. The fee is $29 (the school code is “700” and the password is “cea700”. If you are a returning stewardship family, you must apply for CEA before April 15.

This week:

The 7th and 8th graders will have Confession on Wednesday morning. Please encourage your child to do an Examination of Conscience prior to Wednesday.

This Friday at 10:00am is Stations of the Cross. The 7th graders will lead us in prayer.

Looking forward:

Trek Through the Desert is on Wednesday, April 13 at 8:30am. All of the students, kindergarten through 8th will dress as Israelites. We will reenact several parts of the Old Testament including the 1st graders who will part the Red Sea for Moses! I have attached some pictures of Treks in the past. Please do not purchase anything, you may use an old pillowcase with the arms and head cut out and a kitchen towel to cover the head. The children need to wear their regular school gym shoes.

Wednesday concludes with the 8th graders performing the Living Stations in the Church at 11:30am. This is a beautiful performance and often a favorite of students, teachers, and parents! Parents are welcome to both events!

Easter Gifts:

We are doing a fundraiser from now until April 9th, through a local Catholic owned business, Saintly Heart. There are several beautiful gifts for young children. These gifts will be delivered to the school the Monday of Holy Week. We would contact you when delivered via email and either send them home with your student or you may pick up if it is an Easter gift! When you check out, use the code OLMC. The proceeds from this sale will be used for retreats for the students.

Have a great Sunday,
Dr Shewbridge
