February 11, 2021 Principal’s Corner Newsletter

The name of February comes from the Latin word “februum” which means purification. The month of February is dedicated to the Holy Family. This year the first 16 days of February fall during the liturgical season known as Ordinary Time which is represented by the liturgical color green. Green, the symbol of hope, is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. The remaining days of February are the beginning of Lent. The liturgical color changes to purple — a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart.

New to our Teaching Staff

Please help me welcome Giorgio Navarini to our teaching staff. Giorgio, who is employed by the parish, has agreed to teach Eighth Grade Religion on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Giorgio is a graduate of Thomas Aquinas College earning a Bachelor's degree in Theology and Philosophy and he is excited about getting back into teaching. He will begin January 26th. This change will free up some time for Mr. Manaker who is our Athletic Director and on-campus tech support person.
