2021-2022 Year of the Family!  
Under the patronage of St. Joseph, Pillar of Families

Who Said “Boo?”

The Sparks enjoyed their rainy Fall Day fashioning their orange and black festive attire and accessories! There were no ghosts except maybe in the Halloween stories composed by our 5th Graders who read them to all the other classes. Much fun went on at their classroom parties! 

All Saints Day and All Souls Day

Monday, November 1  All Saints’ Day
  • Embers’ All-School Mass will be celebrated at 2:00 p.m.
  • Students are encouraged to ‘be a saint’! 
  • Students may include with their uniform something that symbolizes a saint they would like to represent that day. Any clothing item must be worn over uniforms — it is not an out-of-uniform day. 
Tuesday, November 2  All Souls’ Day

  • Please send a picture
  • Students may bring in a picture of someone they know who has passed away in the last year. The repose of their souls will be prayed for during the month of November.
