Dear Parents and Guardians,
“For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night.” (1 Thessalonians 5:2)
Reflection from writings of Pope Francis:
The reason we have different gifts is so that we can be gifts to others. And here, brothers and sisters, we should ask ourselves the question: do I only follow my own needs, or am I able to look to the needs of others, to whomever is in need? Are my hands open, or are they closed? At the end of our lives, then, the truth will be revealed. The pretense of this world will fade, with its notion that success, power, and money give life meaning. Whereas love – the love we have given – will be revealed as true riches.
Grace and Peace,
Ms. Danielle Gonzalez

The Father English Food Pantry is in need of food donations. The pantry feeds the working poor and about 20,000 families are served monthly with more than 1,000 food bags distributed daily. Most clients work but cannot afford to feed their families. Let us help them by bringing only NON-PERISHABLE food items to school starting Tuesday, November 14 through Monday, November 20, 2023.
Please consider the following donations: Canned food, lentils, peanut butter, and dry cereals.
