Divine Saviour & St. Ann


Laudate pueri Dominum laudate nomen Domini - Ps. 112.1

14 July 2019

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Our God is about relationships. In the first reading, Moses reminds the Israelites that the laws, which are already in their hearts, keep them in right relationship with the God who loves them so much that they always find forgiveness. Centuries later, along comes Jesus, whom Paul describes to the Colossians as “the image of the invisible God,” the very embodiment of this God of love. In his parable about the Good Samaritan, Jesus explains how the law of love overrules the letter of the law. Instead of answering the question “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus demonstrates that it is not about who is worthy of being loved, but rather loving as God loves--about being neighbor, about being the good Samaritan. Jesus wants us to continue his work as images of this God of love by loving all people, even those who seem to be our enemies.

*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.

*Immunizations: California school immunization regulations changes on Monday, July 1st, 2019.  I have attached the information about the immunization you child needs to start school. If your child received any vaccines during last school year, then you need to bring a new copy of the vaccines to the school in order for your child to start school.

*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.

*Summer School: This program will start with mass at 8am and run until 3pm. There are half day and full day options with half day costing $150 and full day costing $250. There is also a $25 registration fee per child which is due June 14th. It is important that families pay their registration fees by June 14th so that we can secure teachers for this summer.

*Registration for the 2018-2019 school year is open. If you are interested in registering your child please stop by the school office (no appointment necessary) or call the office at 323-222-6077 to speak to Mr. Carvalho, principal.
