Adoration Prayer Service 

Dear Parents,
 
This week we had our first Adoration session in the gym, and I have to say, it was truly a blessed event to witness. Our time before the Lord began with a video montage set to the song “Remembrance”, by Matt Maher (click here to see the video).  After the video reflection, the students knelt for several minutes while Fr. Clement brought forward Jesus in the monstrance.  Fr. Clement began speaking to the students about Jesus' presence in the Eucharist and what this time before Him was really about. 
 
The children then sat and reflected on the words of Fr. Clement, calling on them to “bring forward their hearts, open to hear what it was Jesus had to say to them.”  They were given about 5 minutes to just sit, to be still before Jesus.  Several minutes later, Fr. Clement again began teaching, instructing the students why time before Jesus is so important.  He elaborated on the need to be “open to Jesus' call to us” in our lives.  He then asked the students to pray for their parents. After some additional time in silent reflection Mr. Jeffery led the children in a song on his guitar. 
 
As our time before the Lord came to an end, it was clear to me that, while this was a new experience for many of our children, it was one they enjoyed.  In fact, several commented to me afterward that they liked this style of singing and prayer. 
 
What struck me about both of the sessions we did today was the reverence that so many of our students demonstrated.  I was in awe at the level of participation and my heart was moved at seeing the faces of our students as they gazed upon the Lord.  I have great faith that the Lord will use this time to enliven the hearts of His children.  As we do with our Masses, we welcome our parents to come and join us for this time of Adoration, prayer, and instruction.  
 
In Christ,
Mr. Czaplicki
 
 


 
 

An Invitation to Our Parents
 
Parents, we invite you to join us on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month for Mass.  We also encourage you to join us on the 4th Thursdays of each month for Adoration, prayer, and instruction.  On the second Thursdays of the month, our students will have an opportunity to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation from all of our priests.  This second Tuesday Reconciliation will be open to our students only.  This is to guarantee more time for the students themselves to receive the sacrament.  
 
We will also be holding First Friday Adoration in the Parish house on the first Friday of each month.  We are always looking for volunteers to assist us in spending time with our Lord.  Please contact the school office if you are available or would like more information.

​our
PRINCIPAL FOR THE DAY 
for his exceptional leadership!
A Note from Mr. R...
 
Dear OLGC,
Today I was the Principal for the Day.  Today I went to a lot of classrooms to see the kids.  I also saw an 8th grader make a great catch in gym and had some teachers ask for a raise.  I told them no.  It was such a fun day.
