Some Easter Thoughts from Fr. Ray

Happy Easter! May the Hope and Promise of the mystery of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, be with you and your family. Easter is the foundation of our Faith. May your celebration of Easter be a blessing to you and your family. On behalf of all the Friars and Staff of Our Lady of Guadalupe – Happy Easter! I pray for Pope Francis that he rekindles and renews our Hope in the Church.

We welcome all those who are visiting this weekend. If you live in the area, please consider making Our Lady of Guadalupe your parish and your home.

If you have grade school children, Our Lady of Guadalupe has a few openings Preschool through 8th Grade. Please call the School Office for more details.

Two dates that I need to call to your attention:

  • Remember also, that next weekend it the Canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. Please read more about these great Saints of our Church who have affected the Catholic Church of the 21st Century.

An Easter Message from Mrs. April Beuder, Our School Principal

During this season of new life, I see the grace of our Lord in the growth and renewal of our school. We have a vibrant parent community willing to roll up their sleeves and share their gifts of time and talent. There is a joyful spirit of collaboration within our faculty and I continue to be impressed by their creativity and professionalism. As I walk through the classrooms, I marvel at the levels of student engagement and the enthusiasm for learning. Our students are thriving in every sense of the word and your continued support and prayers are truly appreciated. Easter blessings to all and I look forward to seeing you at the Fiesta!
