Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, the founder of the Society of Mary, died over 250 years ago on January 22, 1850. Each year all of the Marianist schools in the Province of Meribah recall the life and work of Fr. Chaminade by celebrating a special Eucharist in his memory. On Thursday, January 30th Fr. Tom came to celebrate Mass with all of us in St. Martha’s Church. Fr. Tom reminded all the children how Fr. Chaminade dedicated his life to teaching young men and women how to be true disciples of Jesus. He told us all that we can always turn to Mary as our Mother to help us in becoming friends of Jesus.
In his honor, Chaminade High School, Kellenberg Memorial High School and St. Martin de Porres Marianist School had no classes on Friday.
Saturday afternoon was the 10th Annual Ladies’ Tea and Fashion Show hosted in KMHS’ beautiful Millennium Room. Sixteen eighth grade ladies modeled the latest fashions for a room filled with over 120 junior high girls, their moms and grandmas as well.
After watching the show, who could resist the tempting cookies, cupcakes and flowing chocolate fountain! The Ladies’ Tea and Fashion Show was the first of the social events that SMMS inaugurated when the school began 10 years ago.
Today the Cub Scouts celebrated their Annual Blue and Gold Mass and Brunch. Mass in St. Martha’s Church was followed by brunch in the Sacred Heart Commons. Moving up awards were presented to some of the scouts after brunch.
This coming Friday evening, February 7th, is Family Reading Night. Looking forward to seeing many families there for a wonderful night of reading.
