Celebrating 200 Years

Students, faculty, staff, administration, and board members of St Philomena School, gathered today to honor and celebrate 200 years of the Society Faithful Companions of Jesus by planting daffodil bulbs under our restored SPS sign. A member from each class came along, to take part in the ceremony with prayers and insights offered by grade 5 students. Click on the Photos to see a larger version.

Every student and teacher was sent home with a daffodil bulb to plant in your home garden in remembrance of the Sisters FCJ who started and sustain our beautiful school community. During this very special year long celebration, we pause and give thanks to God for all the blessings bestowed upon our school through the many Sisters FCJ who have sacrificed dearly and loved deeply. We pray that the flowers we plant this fall will bloom in the spring to remind us of new life and the beauty of God’s creation.

May Mary, Mother of Courage and Confidence, continue to guide us to find discover, develop, and use our gifts and talents to transform the world for good!
