Walk-A-Thon Raises Nearly 18,000

Thank you to all of the students, parents, and benefactors who made the 2013 Walk-A-Thon as smashing success! Who would have predicted that we would surpass last year's Walk-A-Thon pledges by almost $8,000? Well that is precisely what happened! Students raised over $17,500 in pledges for the school, and donations are still coming in online. We can't say thank you enough to all of the students and families who worked so hard to make this happen! This is a wonderfully blessed and Spirit filled school community. Praise Jesus!

Catholic Schools Week Party Fun-Filled and Memorable

What better way to celebrate Catholic Schools week than to throw a school wide party? MRA students across all grade levels experienced tons of fun on Friday afternoon. The fun included indoor mini-golf, musical chairs, parachute games, baked goods, hot chocolate, and pictionary. Students were divided into teams and each team had a team leader from the high school. Team leaders brought the younger children to stations on campus where the fun was happening. Other older children helped organize and supervise the various stations. It was a fitting finale to a special week. Catholic education is di...

Annual March for Life Pilgrimage Departs TOMORROW!

Every year we customarily cancel classes for grades 7-12 in order to participate in the March for Life. 2013 is a particularly significant year, for it is the 40th anniversary of that dreadful decision that has since licensed so many abortions, Roe v. Wade. We approach this annual school trip as a pilgrimage. Pilgrimages are an ancient form of spiritual sacrifice in which an individual or collection of individual embarks upon a long journey, carrying deep within their heart both a specific intention, and a desire to conform more closely to the will of God. For three years in a row now, student...

Below is an excerpt from a Christmas commentary authored by Archbishop Charles Chaput: For believers, the Christmas season doesn’t end this week.  It begins.  So much of modern life at this time of year – its noise, its urgency, its relentless emphasis on shopping and the fatigue that always follows – can seem beyond the control of individuals.  These things can easily distract us from the real reason most Americans, even today, celebrate “the holidays,” the birth of Jesus Christ.   That humble birth is not a legend or seasonal fairy tale.  It’s a matter of historical record with real conseque...
