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.

  2. 2. Our Spirit Week ended with our community! 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 everyone!! UPDATE from OMMS TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE …… 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.

Anything with a screen is of greater value.…another great way to support our school! is offering gift cards for 3 oil changes worth $120 for only $40.

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.
