St. Augustine of Canterbury
Augustine was an Italian monk who was living a quiet life as the head of a group of monks in Rome. All that
changed when his friend, Pope Gregory decided that Augustine was just the person to take leadership of the
Christian faith in Britain.
Augustine and his missionary team of 30 monks started from Rome on their journey. When they got as far
as Provence, in southern France, they heard some frightening tales. Britain, they were told, was still a place
of uncivilized tribes. The monks convinced Augustine to tell Gregory the trip was a bad idea. But Gregory
said he wished he could join them himself, and he was sure that the time was right.
It turned out that Gregory was correct. After several years, King Ethelbert of Kent in England was baptized.
His people followed his example. Before long the English people would themselves be sending out missionaries.
Augustine worked among the English for eight years before he died. He is honored as the apostle of England.
St. Augustine of Canterbury, pray for us.

Our entire community joined together on Friday to
enjoy a variety of midmorning games then ending with
a picnic lunch! I happened to be involved in a meeting
during the festivities, but from the “Cheers” and sound
level everyone had a GREAT time! Many, many thanks
to the parents who assisted, brought in additional food
items or drinks, and to the Boone Family who not only
“grilled” the lunches, they donated the all you can eat
hotdogs and buns……all truly appreciated the yummy
lunch as a precursor to the traditional annual Memorial
Day BBQ’s! We would also extend our appreciation to
the Knights of Columbus for the use of their portable
BBQ, to Joey B. for the wonderful music and sound
system plus all of our teachers and students who
assisted with the day’s event…..complete FUN for
UPDATE from OMMS TECHNOLOGY
Another meeting was held on this past week
Wednesday, May 21. Members include two parents,
three teachers, our Pastor, Chief Operations Officer, an
individual within the technical business world, a
parishioner, and principal. During this meeting it was
announced that Rick Lewis, a parishioner and Director
of Technology and Information Systems for Carlsbad
Unified School District, was appointed Chair of the
Technology Steering Committee. We reviewed the
necessities and reached a decision to establish our
short term goal as being to complete the Smart Board
Technology project within in Jr. and Sr. Elementary,
plus change the projection system within Middle
School prior to the beginning of school. We are now in
the process of obtaining bids to compete this project.
Other established goals are to create a multi-media
room to support all classrooms from Transition to
Primary and upgrading our two Computer Science Labs.
In addition a new Technology Plan will be written
document as we move forward into the future. We are
very blessed with the dedication and commitment from
each member as each brings experience and expertise
relative to their various fields. On behalf of everyone
at OMMS, especially the students, we thank you for
your willingness to assist with this endeavor.

Eoilchange.com…another great way to
support our school!
Eoilchange.com is offering gift cards for 3 oil
changes worth $120 for only $40. The best part
is OMMS gets to keep $20 (that's half!) of each
sale. If we sell 200 gift cards we would earn
$4000. If we sell 500 gift cards we would earn
$10,000! The money to be earned is endless because
everybody NEEDS oil changes. Please see Ms. Cyndi
in the office to buy yours; grab a few more to sell at
work to your coworkers.
