School News
January is almost over so we have one month of the New Year behind us. We have certainly had a mild
winter compared to last year. Thank God!
Our sympathy and prayers are extended to Tracy Johnson, full-day three year old preschool aide, on the
sudden death of her mother, Fay Cox. May she rest in peace and may the family find comfort.
The Science Fair was exemplar this year. Thanks to our science teachers, Kim Malinowski and Nicole
Holzner for all of their hard work and efforts. Thanks to students, along with parent support, for projects
that reflected quality and expertise. We were so proud of all of you
What a treat we had from our first through eighth graders who starred in, “My Son Pinocchio.” They
were great and, I’m sure some are headed for stage and screen. Thanks to the Youth Company for their
professionalism and enthusiasm in working with our students. They always brag about our students. We
are now working on our spring production, “You are a Good Man Charlie Brown.” Stay tuned!
Trivia Night was another huge success. It is always fun to see our present and past students and families
who come out to enjoy an evening of fun and challenge. Oh! How much we forget what we have learned
through the years.
Thanks to Robin Juran, our Music Director, for organizing the Music Fair. As always, our students made
a fine showing with their projects.
Our Discovery Sunday Open House was well attended and very successful. Thanks to Jennifer Beck, our
creative organizer, Erin Naraky, and Krista Dustin for their help in putting it all together. It was
phenomenal. Thanks to Liz Ryan for the advertisements and all the parents, past and present students, the
faculty, and staff for your participation and help. We are so happy and proud of the final results.
We will soon be preparing for the beginning of Lent. How true is the statement, “Time waits for no man
or woman.” Enjoy all the festivities in February. Spring is lurking around the corner.

Please Support the 2015
Annual Catholic Appeal
Food Drive
Next weekend,
February 7th and 8th,
is our monthly ProLife Food Drive.
Please bring nonperishable food,
cleaning supplies and paper products to
the vestibule before or after Mass. We
will be sending all the donations to St.
Thomas of Canterbury food pantry that
serves the homeless and low income
residents of the Uptown neighborhood.
Also, we will gratefully accept any
monetary donations for the women’s
Center to help them with the aid they
give to women who have chosen LIFE
for their babies.
World Day for
Consecrated Life
February 2
According to Moses, the people decided
they didn’t want to hear God’s voice
directly any more. The experience was
much too frightening. Why couldn’t God
send human teachers, prophets instead?
God agreed, but with a warning. The
people had better listen to those teachers,
because they spoke in God’s name.
That arrangement, though, has its own
problems, for them and for us. How do I
know this teacher is truly from God?
And if the teacher is from God, are all
parts of the teaching meant for me? We
have the Church and scripture to help us
with those questions, but still there are
always a few loose ends.
This is the powerful significance of the
sentence in today’s Gospel: “The people
were astonished at his teaching, for he
taught them as one having authority and
not as the scribes” (Mark 1:22). The
people knew that this Jesus was
authentic—truly a teacher sent by God.
They knew it by hearing Him.
Our new
Cupich has
Sisters in the
Archdiocese of
Chicago to a
day of
celebration on February 7th, in
which he will celebrate Consecrated
Life with us. What an honor!
Please continue to pray for our
Sisters and all persons who live the
Consecrated Life style that we will
"read the signs of the time" and act
on the being conscious of and
serving all of God's people and their
needs, in a special way those who
are poor and neglected.
Also, pray for young women and
men as they discern their
vocation. Our world will always be
in need of good priests, sisters, and
—Sr. Mary Beth
“Entrusted with Responsibility”
Please spend some
time this week
reflecting on the
Annual Catholic
Appeal brochure
that you received
with your bulletin.
Please remember
that the Annual
Catholic Appeal is
much different
than a one-time
special collection. It is a pledge
campaign wher e you can make a gift
payable in installments.
As you review the work enabled by your
contribution to the Annual Catholic
Appeal, please reflect on God’s gifts to
you. He has given you all that you have.
With these gifts, you are entrusted with
responsibility. Your gifts to our parish,
to the Archdiocese and to the work of the
Church throughout the world should be
given in gratitude for the continuing gifts
that God gives you.
Each pledge makes a difference because
all parishes participate in the campaign
and the gifts of many enable our
Archdiocese to deliver needed ministries
and services. Our combined gifts not
only signify our gratitude to God, they
fund a significant portion of the work of
our Archdiocese.
After our parish goal of $28,048.74 is
reached in cash, 100% of any additional
funds come back to our parish to help to
fund our needs.
If you received your pledge form in the
mail, please complete it and mail it back
or bring it to Mass next weekend. For
those of you that did not receive a
mailing or have not had time to respond
to it, we will conduct our in-pew pledge
process at all Masses next weekend.
Thank you for your prayerful
consideration and generous response.

“Brothers and sisters: I should like you
to be free of anxieties.” - 1 ORINTHIANS 7:32
How much anxiety do we bring upon
ourselves by constantly worrying about
not having enough or attaining more
things? God won’t necessarily give you
everything you want, but He will
provide everything you need. Try this –
use the word “pray” instead of the word
“worry” in the future.
