WELCOME BACK!! Hopefully everyone had a great holiday and spent time with family and friends.
A New Year’s Prayer
May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

A friendly reminder…
Student safety is always our number one priority here at the Mighty Holy Spirit.
We have noticed people are parking in our parking lot at the end of the day and trying to leave before the buses leave. We are asking that parents do not enter the school parking lot before or after school as it becomes a safety risk to our students.
