Friday Letter 9/11
Dear St. Sebastian Families,
Mrs. Mariano (aka Ms. Weiss) will return to school on Tuesday, Sept. 15th. Congratulations and welcome back! Thank you Mr. Suk as Ms. Littleworth for all your hard work in kickstarting the school year, you have both done a wonderful job!
On Tuesday I was fortunate to attend the ordination of three Bishops at the Cathedral, with Fr. German. It was such a beautiful ceremony and the message of living our lives as Christ did, without judgment was the focus. This continues to be a consistent message from Pope Francis and our clergy, in this year of mercy.
Today students prepared a special mass in remembrance of all of those who were affected by the events on September 11th. Students in 7th and 8th grade led the homily, many of our 8th graders were born in 2001. They shared a message of hope and gave each student and parishioner a piece of yarn to tie around their finger, reminding them to do at least one good deed.
We are still in need of someone to chair or co-chair the hospitality committee. This position plans and organizes refreshments for various activities throughout the school year. Please call or email Mr. Higdon if you are interested. Thank you parents for taking on these lead positions at the school!

Do we say “Thank you” to God every day?
