Friday, January 6, 2017 – Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord
The Epiphany celebrates the manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles, and the visit of the Magi. Other manifestations recalled on Epiphany are the miracle at Cana and the Baptism of Jesus. Epiphany is celebrated on January 6
Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Lord Jesus, may your light shine our way,
as once it guided the steps of the magi:
that we too may be led into your presence
and worship you,
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
On today’s calendar…

A reminder that DeLaSalle recommends keeping at least 3GB of free space on your device at all times to insure proper usage. If you experience issues with apps closing or your device being slow, this is due to your device running out of space. Best practice is to delete large apps if you do not use them such as Garage Band or iMovie. If you delete one of them, but need them later in the semester, go to the Meraki app and download them from there. If you use them then you must delete personal apps before deleting any school apps
Mrs. Wojda’s 7th and 8th hour Church History classes will be marking the mantles of many of our classroom doors on the afternoon of the 6th, using the prayer and ritual of a traditional Epiphany home blessing. As we ask for God’s blessings on the classrooms, we will mark the doors with these letters and numbers which correspond to the initials of the Kings, or Magi (Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar) and the numbers of the current year, connected with crosses:
It is a common Christian custom to bless the home – and De is a special home away from home for all of us. Let us begin the New Year by asking for God’s many blessings! The sign, 20+C+M+B+17, is a reminder that we can trust in God’s love and mercy as we journey through this year.
If you would like to bless your home with your family over the weekend, stop by Mrs. Wojda’s room after school on Friday for a piece of chalk and a copy of the prayer we used.
