February 9th Newsletter

February 9, 2017

Dear OLG Families,
We’re busy giving tours and following up with visitors from our Open House. Don’t forget about our referral incentive if you recommend a family who ends up registering at OLG! Kindergarten screenings are being scheduled this month, and we’re enrolling for preschool and pre-k as well, with some spaces in most grades throughout the school. If you know a family who you’d love to have as part of our OLG community, please reach out!
If you haven’t had a chance yet, sign up for after-school chess or art; both classes are starting next Tuesday and are open to students in grades K-8.
We hope to see you at this year’s Kentucky Derby Auction. You can register here. This is a critical fundraiser for the school and a great way to spend a fun evening with other OLG families. Thank you to our wonderful auction team for all that you are doing to make it a success!
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!

Preschool – 5th and 7th Grade Spanish
Wow! It’s already February; time is flying by! It’s always a pleasure to teach Spanish at OLG. I feel blessed to be part of this community, and I love teaching Spanish to your children. Since January and February are sneaking out, let’s see what your kids have been learning and what themes they will be focusing on this month.

Parish Outreach
Community Meal: Help Spread a Little Love this Month
Help us spread a little love in the community this month by putting on a fabulous Community Meal!   The Community Meal is served at OLG


each month and offers a free meal for anyone in the area who wishes to attend.  We are looking for people who can help on Sunday, February 26 in the Walmesley Center with set up (9:45 am), serving and visiting with guests (12:30 pm), and  cleanup (1:30 pm).  You don’t need to stay for the whole day, only for your shift.  If you are not able to help that day, you can participate by dropping off a homemade or store-bought dessert for our guests (any time after 9:45 am).  If you’re able to serve, please contact Colleen.

Pastoral Associate
Lenten RSVP Series (Ritual, Sharing, Verse and Prayer) 
Lent is less than a month away, and we are offering a six-week, parish-wide series based on the Washington State Bishops’ Pastoral Letter on poverty, “Who Is My Neighbor?” and the weekly Lenten Gospel. RSVP is designed to build closer relationships and foster a deeper spirituality in our parish community. It is a great way to get to know people and grow in your faith.  Small groups gather in parishioners’ homes or at the parish to pray and reflect on the readings for the upcoming Sunday’s Mass. If you are new to the program, please fill out the form in the back of church or in this week’s bulletin. You can return it to the office or place it in the collection basket. You can also register online. There are a variety of options for meeting times to accommodate your schedule. For more information, please contact Helen Oesterle (206) 935-0358 ext. 108.
