Speaking to the apostles after the Last Supper, just before going to his agony in the garden, Jesus foretold, “You will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy . . . . You have sorrow now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.”
John 16: 20-22

Jesus modelled for us how to gather together and care for one another.  During this Easter Season we remember his passion so that we can walk on our own with his grace.  The staff of St. Francis of Assisi School wish you a blessed and joyful Easter celebration with family and friends.
