Omms Newsletter 04-08-2014

  1. 1. FRIDAY – April A note to Primary Parents regarding GOOD 18th Our Good Friday Liturgy begins and ends quietly, it is not a mass, but a liturgy with Holy Communion. As in previous years our eighth grade students will re-enact the Passion of Our Lord and all are welcome to join us for this service. The Lord’s Passion is a powerful experience, seeing the re- enactment of Jesus carrying the Cross, falling, being “nailed” to the Cross and giving up his life has brought tears to the eyes of many within the congregation, even our young students. We hope all will join us for this service, but if you feel that your child is too young and may not be ready to experience this re-enactment please make arrangements to pick them up from their Primary classroom no later than 11:30. We ask that you do not pick them up from the Serra Center as this would disrupt the service. Thank you in advance for your assistance with this request. Hot Lunch Volunteers Needed Are you available to assist with serving hot lunches from 11:00 am to approximately 1:00 pm one or two afternoons each week? Ki’s School Lunches offers parent volunteers incentives to families who are able or willing to help. Please contact Cheri Bell at 760-724-6019 if you wish to assist or for additional information. PTG NEWS Scholastic Book Fair This week is our Scholastic Book Fair! Books are available for purchase before and after school at St. Stanislaus (1039-1079) Stanislaus Szczepanowski (shchep-an-OV-skee) was the son of noble parents in Poland. He decided early in life that he wanted to be a priest. He was sent to the best schools, even as far away as Paris. Later, as a young preacher back in Kracow, on Sunday mornings he drew crowds from all over the city. In 1072, Stanislaus was chosen to be bishop of Kracow. The people of the city were overjoyed. They loved their new bishop. They felt free to ask him for advice, shelter, food, or whatever they needed. He kept open house for the poor. The king of Poland, Boleslaus II, was called “the cruel.” He led his country into unjust wars. He cheated the poor. Of all the people of Poland, only Stanislaus spoke out. Everyone else was afraid. Stanislaus said that if a king was unjust, he had no right to be a king. He also said that an unjust king could not be a member of the church. King Boleslaus attempted to destroy the bishop’s reputation by spreading rumors about him. But the people did not believe the lies. Finally, King Boleslaus brought his guards to the church where Stanislaus was celebrating Mass. He ordered them to kill Stanislaus. When the guards wouldn’t obey him, Boleslaus took a sword and did it himself. After some time, the king was forced out of Poland. According to legend, he repented of the wrongs he had done and spent his last years in a monastery in Hungary. St. Stanislaus, pray for us. St. Stanislaus, pray for us.
