From Father Masson

Hello Cardinal O’Hara Family,


It is great to be back in school with the students, faculty and staff.  There is one scripture that stood out to me during the Quarantine: “It is not good for man to be alone.”  Although we have had to do things a bit differently we have come together and are off to a good start this school year.  


Mrs. Vice has given us the theme for the year: “We Are One”.  There are many things in our society that create division and isolation and cause us to feel alone.  It is Christ that calls us to be ONE.  He does not mean one group of loosely connected people because they share the same location for a time.  Jesus prays to his Father: “I pray not only for them, but also for those who believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us…” (Jn 17:20-21).  


Let us make that not just a theme but a mission this year.  To be ONE as the Son is one with the Father and the Father is one with the Son.  That takes more than wearing the same uniform or sitting in the same classroom.  It takes a lot of effort.  It comes from Loving others as God Loves. It comes from listening to God and one another. It comes from critically thinking about the world in which we live in the light of our gospel values.  It comes from speaking up and acting when others  are in need.  It comes from joining together in prayer with and for one another.  These are great practices for us to work on together this school year.  


May God Bless the 2021 School Year


God Bless,
Fr. John

The United States Bishops have lifted the obligation to attend Sunday Mass as response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  THis does not mean that Sunday Mass is no Longer Important
 
 
 
However the Commandment to keep Holy the Sabbath still remains. There are many ways for us to do this on our own and/or with our families and friends: 

 

    • There are links to Live Stream Mass from the Cathedral and many parishes in the area that help us to still come together in prayer. (Link Below)
    • We can find the readings for Sundays and spend time in prayer meditating their meaning and what they are saying to you. I have added some links that may help. 
    • This is a great time to immerse ourselves in the Scriptures and good Spiritual Reading. 
    • We can use this time to pray a Rosary
    • Take some time for another devotion for which may not normally have the time, such as the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
    • Read about and pray with the Saints.
    • Fast from noise and spend some time in silence.
         
        These are simply some suggestions and tips that may help. It is not an exhaustive list by any means.  There are many ways we can still do our best to Keep Holy the Sabbath Day and grow in our relationship with our God as we practice Social Distancing.
