Laudate pueri Dominum laudate nomen Domini - Ps. 112.1

23 June  2019

The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Today we hear how Abram encounters Melchizedek, king of Salem . . . and a priest of God Most High (Genesis 14:18). Melchizedek appears nowhere else in scripture, but is nonetheless significant. Psalm 110 declares of the great King David, You are a priest forever, in the line of Melchizedek, a description later given (in the letter to the Hebrews) to Christ as High Priest. Early Christians saw in Melchizedek’s bread and wine the bread and wine of the Eucharist; Paul’s account of the Last Supper (in today’s second reading) is the oldest one in scripture. In the Gospel, Luke describes Jesus providing bread for a crowd in words similar to Paul’s, words still used by the Church: Jesus takes bread, gives thanks, breaks it. Together, these three readings reveal how Christian priesthood, Christ’s Real Presence, and the call to serve those in need are all found in the gift of the Eucharist.

*Principal’s Message: We finished our 2018-2019 school year!  Time to focus one getting those report cards to you. Enjoy your summer vacation. Each family's report card will be sent out as soon as all fees for the 2018-2019 school year are paid. This means that most families' report cards will be sent out June 20th via US Mail, though some families who pay on the 5th of the month will receive their report cards sooner. Please keep in mind that students may not start the new school year (2019-2020) with a 2018-2019 school year balance.

*Bingo: Next year we are scheduling Bingo differently. To ensure that we have enough volunteers for each Bingo, families can sign up for bingos per date instead being assigned by month. Each family is required to sign up for two bingos per student enrolled in our school. If you are receiving financial aid from the school, you have been asked to do additional from the school, you have been asked to do additional bingos (this is listed in your contract). Please sign up for the required number of bingos. Please note that this is a serious obligation as all families receive aid from the bingos. We need up to ten volunteers per night.

*Finances: Please be on time with your financial obligations we greatly appreciate it since it is the end of the school year. Please keep in mind that students may not start the new school year 2019-2020 with a 2018-2019 school year balance.
