Catholic Schools Week 2011 Giveaway

Welcome to the 2011 Catholic Schools Week.  This year, instead of giving away one book, we're giving away a book a day.  

To win a copy of A Visit to Church for your school, homeschool, or PSR program, send an email and tell us why you think your school is the best.  Each evening we'll pick a school, homeschool, or PSR program to win a book.  Winners will be chosen at random from all entries but we would like to hear about your program!

Good Luck!  Happy Catholic Schools Week!

I forgot to say why I think our school is the best! We are a school built on love! Love of God, Love of Christ, Love of His Church, Love of each other.

Pope John Paul II Catholic School in NE Minneapolis is the best because it catechizes the students in the fullness the faith well with weekly Mass plus individual monthly Mass for each class, weekly Rosary, multi-age classes (students attend the level of education they are ready for in each subject), they have many students from immigrant families and offer a diverse environment built upon respect, and teach their students responsibility and how to give back to the community.
Students who would get 'lost in the cracks' at bigger schools do well here and are well prepared for high school.

As a parent of a student from Garces Memorial Hg School in Bakersfield, California let me comment. In todays economy to put your child in private education is a sacrafice, to have your child attend Garces Memorial High School in Bakersfield is a blessing. We are blessed to have a school that holds on to creed's of Integrity, Courage of Faith, Respect and Compassion. This Catholic Hg school prepares college ready students of the highest degree. I am so thankful that my daughter has been a part of this 65 year old tradition of Catholic Education.

I think our Pre-School PSR Program at St. Michael's in Worthington is the best as it is one of the only pre-school programs in the Columbus area. We teach children from age 3 yrs to Kindergarten basics about God, Jesus, the Bible, the Rosary, and the parts of the Mass. We even have music twice a month and sing all the Bible songs we all grew up singing. Thanks and good luck to all! Debbie Joyce

Catherine's Mobile Stander

I've once again learned to not underestimate this girl.  At school she has been receiving therapy using this stander to help her gain strength and stamina.  We brought it home for the summer and I'm simply blown away.

I'm amazed at how proficient she is at maneuvering such a device.  She is able to roll around corners, through doorways, over carpet and more.  Catherine makes it look easy and she does so with the hand-eye coordination of a professional gamer.

However, what really amazes me is her disposition when she is in this contraption.  There are tons of books and videos addressing the power of posture, the power of physical positioning and it's influence on the mental position and mental health.  
These short (35 minute) sessions that Catherine experiences twice per day confirms the theories.  Each time she is placed in the stander her demeanor changes.  She's happy, smiles more (if that's possible) and is more outgoing.  She wheels around the house greet…

Take Up Your Cross

Thursday after Ash Wednesday

In the First Reading, Moses challenges the people, and us, to "choose life". He says, "choose life, that you and your descendants may live." This seems pretty practical. If we choose life, we and our descendants will go on. If not, well...

However, I think we need to look deeper. In fact, I would encourage you to insert a word here in the scriptures, if only mentally - "choose eternal life." For most of us, choosing life is not much of a choice in the arena of our daily lives. Most of us do not rise in the morning with the thought of I'm going to choose to live this day racing through our brains. Yet choosing eternal life must be an everyday, and in fact every moment, choice. It is an effort to make those choices day after day and minute after minute. In some degree, every choice we make throughout our day is a choice for either eternal life or eternal death - therefore choose life!

So how then do we "choo…
