The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen
or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

A Conversation With God
Click on the image above to read the story shared with 7th Graders.
Marianna’s thoughts: “I think this story means that even in times when we feel like we are broken, we should always turn to God because he knows our plan and that this is our journey. Even though things in life don’t happen as expected, God knows everything, and we just need to let that be.”

Scrip will be available for sale on Sunday during the Fly By. Cash and check will both be accepted

From Carondelet
As Carondelet High School prepares to celebrate the Class of 2020, we want to acknowledge the achievements of Megan Anton, distinguished graduate of St. Francis of Assisi, who was invited to participate in the Salutatorian selection process.
Invited students possess an exemplary record of conduct, leadership, and service which reflects their support of the Carondelet Mission Statement and the Mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph.
We congratulate Megan Anton on her selection as Salutatorian. We are most appreciative of the wonderful students who come to Carondelet from St. Francis of Assisi and look forward to a long and fruitful association.

Tania Bajada shares:
“We take daily walks together. We have also been watching the Marvel movies in chronological order.
We’ve had to loosen our expectations initially while we all are adjusting to a new norm but over time we are starting to get into a rhythm with online school in the morning and spending time with each other in the afternoons. We learned that we have the capacity to be flexible when needed.
We hope our children will remember the quality time we have spent as a family.”
