Teacher Appreciation Week

Thank you to all of our wonderful parents for the yummy treats and support that you gave to our faculty and staff this week! Our teachers make Embers a very special place indeed.

May Crowning

Second Grade students each presented a flower to Mary in our St. Josemaria Chapel and the Fifth Grade students crowned Mary before Mass on Wednesday. Watch the May Crowning and Mass here.

Preschool students honored the Blessed Mother by bringing flowers and crowning our outdoor statue of Mary.

Green Thumbs Club

We are in need of some volunteers to help us weed and beautify our Mary garden area near the west porch.  Please call the school office if you, your family, or a group would like to assist in this simple act of service. Thank you!

Second Grade Pilgrimage

Thank you to the Cinto Family for organizing a beautiful pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe on May 1st. Families who attended enjoyed a picnic, beautiful weather, friendship, family and fun! What a wonderful way for the 2nd Grade students to prepare for their First Holy Communion! 

First Holy Communion

Please continue to keep our 2nd Graders in your prayers as they prepare for their First Holy Communion on May 22nd at St. Mary of the Angels.

All School Pilgrimage

The entire school community is invited to attend a family pilgrimage at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe to give thanks for our ability to stay open during this unprecedented school year. More details to come!

The following are brief explanations of the titles of St. Joseph recited in the Litany to St. Joseph.

Model of Workers  – St.  Joseph was a diligent laborer,  showing us how to joyfully approach our work. “He gives God his life… he places at his service the strength of his arm; he gives… all that he is and all he can do; the ordinary everyday work that is part of his station in life.St. Josemaria Escriva

Example to Parents Joseph was entrusted with the task of being the foster father of Jesus, standing in for God the Father. “Joseph showed Jesus, by a special gift of heaven…all the natural love that a father’s heart can give.” St. John Paul II
