Holiness is Living  Simply


 

 

"Blessed are the poor in the Spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven", once we think we are rich, we become so self satisfied that we leave no room for God’s word, for the love of our brothers and sisters, or for the enjoyment of the most important things in life. In this way, we miss out on the greatest treasure of all. That is why Jesus calls blessed those who are poor in spirit, those who have a poor heart, for there the Lord can enter with his perennial newness."

Pope Francis (Gaudete et Exsultate, 68)  

  

Reflect: Where can I welcome the simplicity and poverty Jesus lived in my own life?

               

 

                                                                                   

 

 

   

 
OUR SCHOOL:          

    Dated Info: 2/10/2019

     This past week with the beautiful weather, our students have definitely gotten a touch of "Spring Fever"! Fortunately, they have put that energy into their school work and accomplished amazing things! We have begun our annual Pennies for Patients collection and our Newsletter Crew is selling "Candy Grams" in preparation for Valentine’s Day. Our 4th graders hosted our February mass and in keeping with our Catholic Identity Theme for the year, "Saints in Training", they focused on St. Blaise. We also began the reading portion of our Scantron standardized testing to check on our mid-year progress and to give teachers the data necessary to guide their instruction over the next few weeks.

      We would like to thank everyone who visited during our Open House and Catholic Schools Week and to all of the new families and students that have come by to see our school. We are always happy to welcome visitors, guests and new families into our amazing community.

      As always, we invite you to stop by any time for a visit. We are currently scheduling tours for families interested in enrollment for next year so please call the office to schedule an appointment (301.868.2010). You are also always 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 broadcasts at 8:05 am and 2:50 pm so that you can join us every day for prayer.  
     

 "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).
