BLESSING OF BIBLES
JANUARY 25 & 26 AT ALL MASSES
Bring your Bible to Mass on the weekend of January 26! Pope Francis has instituted the third Sunday in Ordinary time as "Word of God Sunday."
In his decree written last fall, “Aperuit Illis,” the Holy Father said, “The relationship between the Risen Lord, the community of believers and sacred Scripture is essential to our identity as Christians…The Bible is the book of the Lord’s people, who, in listening to it, move from dispersion and division towards unity.”
So please bring your family Bible or your personal Bible to Mass for a blessing. There will also be information available to enthrone your Bible in your home. For more information on purchasing a Bible please respond to this email. For more information about the Bible click on the above picture.
OUR LADY OF THE VALLEY REGIONAL SCHOOL
Mrs. Marilyn Willand, Principal of Our Lady of the Valley Regional School, has announced that she will be retiring at the end of the school year. Mrs. Willand has been at the helm for the past thirteen years and we thank her for all her hardwork and dedication to the OLV community.
Through a recently formed search committee, the process has begun to find a new principal. Please join the OLV community with the following prayer as the search beings.
Father. Please send us the principal you want us to have.
Send us a principal who will love our school, our students, our families and most importantly YOU. WE prayerfully seek your will and wisdom in all things. We ask in Jesus' name. Amen.
Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning [within us] while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?”
