This past Sunday was our 24th Sunday in ordinary time and it gave us the account of the Prodigal Son by St. Luke. It’s a beautiful reading meant to reach all of us! God never tires of seeking us out and waiting for us to respond to his Love. Our Lord chose to exemplify this through the parable of the Prodigal son. In the parable we either can identify with the Prodigal son or the oldest son who is resentful of the Father willing to receive the younger son despite his sins. The Church helps us understand that the father responds to the son by explaining to him that those that are truly close to God don’t need anything and/or desire anything but Him. And that it is truly a miracle and a time of rejoicing when someone returns to God. We pray that we always see our Father as a loving father that wants nothing but the best for us, even though we may not understand at that moment sometimes.
Thank you to all the families that came out yesterday to support our teachers and the school by attending the 9am Catechetical mass and then driving over to Fuddruckers to support our school. We hope you enjoyed the food, the raffle and the time we spent together. Thank you for making SBS such a communal place where your children can see that they have an “extended” family at our school.
Our chocolate sales concluded last week please make sure you bring in your monies so that we may credit your account.
PLC’s – As you may know this year we have implemented our new PLCs (Parent Leadership Committees) in which we have structured our school in a way that we can meet the needs of it and help parents plan and complete their service hours. In the beginning of the year we had asked for families to sign up for committees if you have done so, thank you. If you haven’t please call the office as there are still spots available in certain committees. There will be other events in which families could participate in to complete their hours. These will be posted on Schoolspeak at certain times. Please remember that being in a committee does not guarantee that you will complete your service hours (although we project that it might) and so if this is the case please make sure you seek out other events to complete your hours. The PLC lead will contact you to introduce themselves and go over the events for the year. Please call the office if you have questions.
