St. Anthony School students were back in school on Monday, Aug. 7. Everyone gathered in the patio for prayer, announcements and welcome by Principal Sr. Fe Gamotin, O. P. and a blessing by Pastor Fr. Gerry Sheehan, SOLT.

On Thursday, Aug. 10, the 8th Grade Class presented a Beginning of the Year Paraliturgy.

The students presented symbols to remind us of the work they will be doing this year as Christians. The yardstick is for measuring our spiritual and mental growth, the lightbulb is a symbol of the light of Christ, the pens, markers, pencils are tools to share our thoughts and feelings about God, the chalkboard, eraser, white out reminds us that the Sacrament of Reconciliation helps us change our behavior, the hand bell can summon us to respond to opportunities and challenges, the clock tells us that after many minutes, days, weeks, months and years we will be home with God in eternity, the globe reminds us to pray for world peace and to extend our charity to our brothers and sisters in need.
