Middle School Dance

Tonight our middle schoolers will be footloose and fancy free at our very first Sock Hop. They’re going back in time to celebrate with this 1950s cultural phenomenon that pushed the boundaries of prevailing norms and changed the conversation in everything from fashion to racial tensions. Our kids have been practicing for more than a month, learning the steps of some of the most iconic dances from this era, and tonight they’ll be living it up on the dance floor and celebrating the friendships they’ve forged.

This is another great opportunity for prospective families to discover the OLMC difference.

The 2019-20 application process has begun, and waiting lists are being formed for several grades, so now is an ideal time to consider OLMC for next year. Feel free to drop in any time between 6:30 and 8:30.

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Lunch

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Lunch

Traditionally, people viewed the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday as the last opportunity to finish off any remaining eggs and oils in the pantry before embarking on their Lenten fast, and what better way to use up those ingredients than pancakes?

The pancake has a very long history and featured in cookery books as far back as 1439. The tradition of tossing or flipping them is almost as old: “And every man and maide doe take their turne, And tosse their Pancakes up for feare they burne.” (Pasquil’s Palin, 1619).

The ingredients for pancakes can be seen to symbolize four points of significance at this time of year: Eggs ~ Creation; Flour ~ The staff of life; Salt ~ Wholesomeness; Milk ~ Purity

In keeping with the Shrove Tuesday tradition, our students will enjoy their annual pancake lunch, lovingly prepared by the faculty.

Ash Wednesday

“This absolute certainty sustained Jesus during the 40 days he spent in the Judean desert, after he had received Baptism from John in the Jordan. For him that long period of silence and fasting was a complete abandonment of himself to the Father and to his plan of love. The time was a “baptism” in itself, that is, an “immersion” in God’s will and in this sense a foretaste of the Passion and of the Cross. Going out into the desert alone to remain there at length meant exposing himself willingly to the assaults of the enemy, the tempter who brought about Adam’s fall and whose envy caused death to enter the world (cf. Wis 2: 24). It meant engaging in battle with him, with nothing but the weapon of boundless faith to challenge him, in the omnipotent love of the Father.” ~ Pope Benedict XVI

“Mother died today. Or maybe it was yesterday, I don’t know.” So begins Albert Camus’ The Stranger, a work that the author himself summarized by saying: “In our society any man who does not weep at his mother's funeral runs the risk of being sentenced to death. I only meant that the hero of my book is condemned because he does not play the game.”

All parents and faculty are invited to read this compelling novel - ranked by Le Monde as number one on its Top 100 Books of the 20th century - and join us for our monthly book club, where we will explore Camus’ brilliant treatment of absurdism and existentialism.

Good Friday - No School

Mount Calvary is the mount of lovers. All love that does not take its origin from the Savior’s passion is foolish and perilous. Unhappy is love without the Savior’s death. Love and death are so mingled in the Savior’s passion that we cannot have one in our hearts without the other. Upon Calvary, we cannot have life without love, or love without the Redeemer’s death. ~ St. Francis de Sales

Presidents Day - No School

Presidents Day - No School

Did you know…Some people call it President’s Day, some call it Presidents Day, some call it Washington’s Birthday. So which is it? For a complete answer, check out this post from the Mount Vernon website: https://www.mountvernon.org/george-washington/the-man-the-myth/the-truth-about-presidents-day/

Here’s the gist: The third Monday of February is the official federal holiday of Washington’s Birthday, but not every state has followed suit. 38 states and the District of Colombia officially observe some kind of celebration to honor President Washington, Presidents Washington & Lincoln, or all past presidents; in fact, there are 14 different variations, ranging from President’s Day to Presidents’ Day to Washington’s Birthday to George Washington Day. A couple of states, including Indiana, actually celebrate Washington’s Birthday on Christmas Eve, even though he was born on February 22nd!

No matter how you observe the day or what name you give it, take some time to read up on our first President and to give thanks for his courage and vision, for it surely changed the course of human history:

First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to none in humble and enduring scenes of private life. Pious, just, humane, temperate, and sincere; uniform, dignified, and commanding, his example was as edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example lasting…. Correct throughout, vice shuddered in his presence and virtue always felt his fostering hand. The purity of his private character gave effulgence to his public virtues.

Walter Wangerin's profound fantasy concerns a time when the sun turned around the earth and the animals could speak, when Chauntecleer the Rooster ruled over a more or less peaceful kingdom. What the animals did not know was that they were the Keepers of Wyrm, monster of evil long imprisoned beneath the earth ... and Wyrm, sub terra, was breaking free.

Lessons & Carols

The holidays are upon us, bringing with them peace, goodwill, joyful expectation, and the warmth of cheerful togetherness. At least, that’s what they’re supposed to bring with them. For too many of us, though, this season is fraught with anxiety, perhaps a bit of superficiality, and all too often a chaotic hustle and bustle that leaves us feeling somewhat empty and even a little lonely.

So here’s an idea to get your heart firmly oriented in the direction of real Christmas happiness: Go to OLMC’s Lessons & Carols on December 15th at 3 pm in the Church. You’ll be glad you did, and here are three reasons why:
