Coming September 16, 2014: PAC (Parents Advocating Catholicism) a new series we're starting this fall to help parents in their roles as the first and most important teachers of the faith.

The first session will be “So You Want To Raise Your Children Catholic, Do You?” and will include free dinner and childcare, an engaging national speaker, door prizes, and fellowship with other parents. Any parents, grandparents, godparents, are invited to attend.

Our speaker will be Rick Barnhardt, who has been a catechist since 1998 in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, before joining RCL Benziger Catholic Publishers. With undergraduate degrees in history and philosophy, Rick is Jesuit-trained, doing his graduate work in theology and catechesis at Saint Louis University. He has presented at the diocesan, parish and school level on topics that include: Sacred Scripture, Prayer, Sacramental Theology, Faith Formation in Children and Families, the Sacraments of Initiation, Spirituality & Religion and Apologetics.

Celebrate your loved ones with books! PDF Print E-mail

SMCS would like to invite you to celebrate your child or remember a loved one with a gift to the school library in the form of a new book in their honor or memory.  We currently have several books that have been donated in memory of loved ones and on the inside cover, those books are identified as a special gift in memory of someone and include the donor’s name. 

The idea came to us to also celebrate birthdays this way as well.  If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday with a special book that can be shared by their friends in the library, we encourage you to select a book they would enjoy and send it to the school office for Mrs. Otting to prepare for circulation in the school library.  Please do not worry about duplicates because chances are if it is a new book we may not have it and if it is a classic, we likely could use a new copy! 

On a separate sheet of paper, please write the name, dates, donor, etc. and include it with the book to assist us in accurately documenting the gift.  Feel free to write your own personal note inside the book cover if you would like.

Thank you for your consideration of this special book project.
