Greetings OLA Families,


What a year to look back on and we are very close to the end of the year.  This week is the last week of Online instruction.  I want to thank you all for your patience and support you have given our teachers and myself as we have navigated this unsettling time in our history as a school and nation. Our hope as an Archdiocesan school we strive to begin the year smart.  


The 2020 -2021 School Year Calendar will be published on the Website by Friday, June 5.

Giving Thanks For Summer

sunset at beachFather, Creator of all, thank You for summer! Thank you for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight. Thank You for the beauty I see all around me and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy Your creation.  Thank You for the increased time I have to be with my friends and family, and for the more casual pace of the summer season.  Draw me closer to You this summer. Teach me how I can pray no matter where I am or what I am doing.  Warm my soul with the awareness of Your presence and light my path with Your Word and Counsel. As I enjoy Your creation, create in me a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for You.  Amen
