Dear Parents of St. Sebastian School,
We hope you had a wonderful Easter with your family. On Easter, Fr. German spoke beautifully
to the congregation about how this celebration in the church reminds us, that through our
baptism, we are called to be priests, prophets, and kings. God calls us to be priests to minister
to others, prophets so that we can announce the good news, and kings so that we can serve
As we approach this new trimester, filled with many activities, celebrations, and fundraisers,
may God grant us all the courage to answer the call, to do exactly as he has sent us forth to do,
to minister, announce the good news and serve others.
Please read below for other important events and announcements.
