Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update

From the Office of the Principal:

Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS;

It is so much fun to watch the children learn and participate in the religious experiences that we hold in our school. Lent is a great time for them to ask many questions about the Life of Christ. Our beautiful church holds large Stations of the Cross to view and pray near. We are experiencing the Crucifixion as we gaze upon these statues.  Growing up Catholic at St. Wenceslaus, I too could take all of this wonder and awe into my life in those years when I joined my schoolmates for the weekly lenten prayers.  Because some of our faith is hard to understand, it takes years to soak into our hearts, minds, and souls. The students who are fortunate enough to come to our school from preschool through grade eight get to experience so many prayer opportunities, lessons, and seasons of our church year. They are lucky to have this extended time for God to enlighten them and deepen their faith.

God, please continue to bless our Catholic School. It is truly a gift.

Kim Doyle, Principal

Psalm 86:11
Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart so that I may honor you.

School Closed Next Monday, March 11

All programs are closed next week, including Club House.  Our staff will be off-site for a day of retreat, reflection, and prayer.

Please pray for our staff that we have a great day and return to school inspired and reenergized as we begin the final trimester of our school year.
