St. Brigid Weekly Update – Week of April 22, 2019

Dear Parents,

“On the first day of the week, at first light, the women came to the tomb bringing the spices they had prepared. They found the stone rolled back from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.” —Luke 24:1–2

Happy Easter!  Easter Time begins with the Easter Vigil and ends after 50 days of celebration on Pentecost Sunday. The Paschal Candle is lit in the church as a symbol of the risen body of Christ and the fire of the Spirit.

On Holy Thursday our kindergarten and grade one classes participated in a liturgy in their classrooms and re-enacted the Last Supper. Our grades 2 through 8 students gathered for a Holy Thursday Liturgy. This week, on Wednesday, our grade 7 students will visit Holy Cross Church to participate in their Confirmation Retreat.

Our Christ the King Sports Leadership students will continue to lead intramurals for all students, open games for Grades 1 through 4 in the gym and ultimate frisbee for Grades 5 through 8. Permission forms must be returned for students to participate. For all the details visit:  Intramurals: Open Games (Grades 1 – 4) or Intramurals: Ultimate Frisbee (Grades 5 – 8).

Junior and Senior Basketball Teams will participate in tournaments this week! Our Senior Bears will participate in a tournament at Christ the King! Our Junior Bears will participate in a 3 team round robin, intramural tournament here at St. Brigid on Thursday after school!   Good luck to our Co-ed Indoor Soccer Team as they participate in the “Tournament of Champions” on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 after school. GO BEARS!
