Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

 

Christian hope, St. Paul says, we are saved (Rm.B:24), as stated in the first and second reading, and in the Gospel, Christ our Lord teaches us how to live in saving hope. lt also explained through parables how waiting for the fulfillment of the "blessed hope," his Coming, should urge one more and more toward a profound life, rich in good works.

 



 

 

   
 
"Sell your possessions and give alms," it is an invitation to use things generously, without thirsting for possession, but according to the logic of God, the logic of love.

  

 

"Blesseds that servant whom his master on arrival finds doing so, the master will put that servant in charge of all his property."

OUR SCHOOL:       
           

    As a part of our mission, we strive to help our students grow in each of the three main pillars: religious formation, academic achievement and appropriate social development. Our students experience a wide variety of activities and events to help them grow in each of these areas. Each year, our lst and 2nd grade students prepare to receive their First Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation near the end of their 2nd grade year. Our 7th and 8th grade students prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation during their 8th grade year. Throughout the year, however, all of our students have the opportunity to prepare and participate in their class mass, attend mass each week, take an active role in our yearly Catholic Identity Theme, as well as learn more about our Catholic Faith in their religion classes. Our school is definitely a community where our Catholic identity is evident in all that we do, each and every day.

    Although it is summer, our building is still open. If you need to stop by or call, our summer hours are 7:00 am to 2:00 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can also visit our website for more information about school activities and events at www.saintjohnsschool.org

     

 "The Mission of St. John the Evangelist Parish School is to be a respectful Catholic environment
where the invitation to become citizen disciples of Jesus Christ is manifested by its learners
and teachers.  Animated by a spirit of trust and cooperation, we are dedicated to religious formation,
academic achievement and appropriate social development. 
In all we do, we celebrate the unique
gift of God in each person and strive to capture the dream of God for all who
make up the community
of  St. John's School."

                                  
  




 

 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (St. John the Evangelist, Apostle; John 1:1-5).
