Middle School Religion – March

Thank you to all the parents and students who came out to parent teacher conferences!

Near the end of last month, our eighth graders received the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Bishop Manz celebrated a beautiful mass.  This could not be done without the planning of Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Pusinelli.  Mrs. Ziemba and the choir, which included Mrs. Rotunno and Ms. Zurowski, really enhanced the experience too.

As we have entered the season of Lent, we will use this time of year to develop virtues through our efforts of prayer, fasting, and alms giving.  Please consider visiting this site in order to reflect and pray during this time.

As part of Lent, the entire school will be attending Stations of the Cross once a week.  Sixth and seventh grade will both be presenting the Stations of the Cross on March 28th and April 4th.  The following week, the eighth grade will be presenting the Living Stations.

March is also a time of year to celebrate the feasts of two beloved saints.  While many have St. Patrick’s Day circled on their calendars, remember that the Feast of St. Joseph take place two days later.  Eighth grade will be presenting 9:00 am mass that day.

Seventh grade has recently watched the documentary, All of Nothing: Sr. Clare Crockett.  They will be writing an essay in which they will argue why this remarkable woman is worthy of sainthood.  For more information on her, please visit this website:

Sixth grade has been learning about the age of kings in Israel, specifically, David and Solomon.  Since it was recently the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, we spent some time learning about the office of the pope.  Students read and watched about the awesome responsibilities the pope carries and his link to Christ himself.
