Announcements 5/8/2017


Thousands of candles
can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not
be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

On this day:   May 8, 1963, with the release of Dr. No, moviegoers get  their first look at the super-spy James Bond (codename: 007), the immortal character created by Ian Fleming in his now-famous series of novels and portrayed onscreen by the relatively unknown Scottish actor Sean Connery.

Optional Spring Retreat
What do you think about when we say science and religion?  While many consider these to be opposites, they are actually quite similar.  In both science and faith, we seek to understand the unknown.  Sign up to explore how the two are related in a retreat atmosphere through your religion classes.
Open to grades 9-11, the retreat will be on Friday, May 19 from 8:00-2:30 pm.  The cost is free.  Only a signed permission slip is needed to attend.   Permission slips will be available through religion classes and will be due by Friday, May 12.   No additional attendees will be accepted after May 12.

Congratulations to the Capella Choir who earned an Excellent (Division

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –    May you be blessed by the God who invites all to be One, who draws you ever nearer, speaking to you of unity and true community where you are surrounded by love and truth. May this God uphold you and inspire you.  May the gift of community arise from within you, radiate around you and extend itself through you to the ends of the earth. May the blessing of the One God be with you. –©Maxine Shonk, OP
