Three for I.C.!!
Tuesday, December 6th through Thursday, December 8th Last year, our school started off Pope Francis’s Year of Mercy with a fundraiser titled “Five Days of Merry Mercy.” The Year of Mercy is officially coming to an end next week, but that doesn’t mean our kind acts need to cease! In an effort to continue the spirit of giving from years past, the Student Council is asking that you wear different clothing for 3 days next week to raise much needed Christmas money for a family at our sister school, Immaculate Conception. Send in a dollar a day (or 3 or more dollars on Tuesday) to wear something fun for our friends at Immaculate Conception!
Tuesday: North Pole Winter Fun Day- In honor of the Feast of St. Nicholas, wear a hat, scarf, gloves, flannel, and/or boots with your regular uniform.
Wednesday: Pajama Day- wear appropriate pajamas to school with regular shoes or closed toed, hard soled slippers or boots.
Thursday: Free Dress! Out of Uniform Day- In honor of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, wear normal out-of-uniform attire following handbook guidelines. We WILL be attending Mass that day.

Mary the Blessed Virgin
The Mother of God, Mother of Jesus, wife of St. Joseph, and the greatest of all Christian saints. The Virgin Mother “was, after her Son, exalted by divine grace above all angels and men”. Mary is venerated with a special cult, called by St. Thomas Aquinas, hyperdulia, as the highest of God’s creatures. The principal events of her life are celebrated as liturgical feasts of the universal Church. Mary’s life and role in the history of salvation is prefigured in the Old Testament, while the events of her life are recorded in the New Testament.
Traditionally, she was declared the daughter of Sts. Joachim and Anne. Born in Jerusalem, Mary was presented in the Temple and took a vow of virginity. Living in Nazareth, Mary was visited by the archangel Gabriel, who announced to her that she would become the Mother of Jesus, by the Holy Spirit. She became betrothed to St. Joseph and went to visit her cousin, Elizabeth, who was bearing St. John the Baptist. Acknowledged by Elizabeth as the Mother of God, Mary intoned the Magnificat.
When Emperor Augustus declared a census throughout the vast Roman Empire, Mary and St. Joseph went to Bethlehem, his city of lineage, as he belonged to the House of David. There Mary gave birth to Jesus and was visited by the Three Kings. Mary and Joseph presented Jesus in the Temple, where St. Simeon rejoiced and Mary received word of sorrows to come later. Warned to flee, St. Joseph and Mary went to Egypt to escape the wrath of King Herod. They remained in Egypt until King Herod died and then returned to Nazareth. Nothing is known of Mary’s life during the next years except for a visit to the Temple of Jerusalem, at which time Mary and Joseph sought the young Jesus, who was in the Temple with the learned elders.
The first recorded miracle of Jesus was performed at a wedding in Cana, and Mary was instrumental in calling Christ’s attention to the need. Mary was present at the Crucifixion in Jerusalem, and there she was given into John’s care. She was also with the disciples in the days before the Pentecost, and it is believed that she was present at the resurrection and Ascension.
