From The Principal's Desk
Dear OLPH Families,
Shades of pink have always represented joy in my life. My daughter is a life-long ballerina so we have been surrounded by ballet pink for well over twenty years. Two weeks ago I felt joy as I watched my new daughter-in-law look radiant wearing a gown with just the slightest pink hue as she pledged her love for my son. Just as there are various shades of pink, there are multiple forms of joy. Joy can be exuberant when we experience the faithfulness of God, it can be calm confidence in His sovereignty, or pure delight as He expresses His love.
This week our Advent wreaths glow with the third candle, a rose one. This is another shade of pink and it also represents joy. Today we are at the midpoint of our Advent journey. Isnít it true that at the midpoint of any journey we have mixed feelings? We are as close to our destination as we are to the beginning. My you continue on a blessed Advent journey.
We invite you to join our school community on Friday, December 21st. The school children will attend the 9:00 AM parish mass, then at 10:00 AM we will participate in the annual OLPH Christmas Pancake Breakfast. Our 8th grade class will host this event. All are welcome! We look forward to seeing many parishioners and alumni on Friday.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Mrs. Cynthia Smith
