  Holiness is finding time to dialogue with God
 


"Be Transformed"


"We are overwhelmed by words, by superficial pleasure and by and increasing din, filled not by joy but rather by the discontent of those whose lives have lost meaning.  How can we fail to realize the need to stop this rat race and to recover the personal space needed to carry on a heartfelt dialogue with God?  Finding that space may prove painful but it is always fruitful.  " 
(Gaudete Et Exsultate, 29)

Reflection:
 Is silence hard for me?  Where do I sense noise and superficiality have taken too strong a hold over me?  Can I carve out 5 more minutes for silence today in my schedule?  

 

 

                                                                                                

 

   

 
OUR SCHOOL:


This week will be an exciting week here at St. Johns - It's Spirit Week!  Every day, students dress up in a variety of outfits to fit the theme for the day.  We start the week with Pajama Day and end it with Freaky Friday.  This is always a fun time to stop by and see the amazing combinations that our students put together!  Each day, students will donate $1 for a special charity and an item for our Operation Christmas Child boxes or the Little Sisters of the Poor.  On Friday, our littlest students, from PreK through 3rd grade, will visit the Pumpkin Patch at Miller Farms.  We will end the week with our Homecoming and Fall Fest on Saturday, October 20th.  Everyone is invited to stop by any time from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm to join the fun.  Our soccer teams will have games, we will have basketball activities, "Touch a Truck", music, games and much more.  It is not only a fun celebration, it's a wonderful community day where our students, families and friends join together.  Please stop by and join in the fun!

Please stop by school any time for a visit or for more information about our school.  You are also welcome to join us daily for our morning and afternoon prayers either in person or via our Live Stream broadcast.  Visit our website, www.saintjohnsschool.org for a link to our daily broadcast at 8:05 am and 2:50 pm so that you can join us everyday for prayer.

“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).
