Hello OLOL families,
I hope this message finds you well. I am happy to say I have a joke of the day to share with you thanks to Jacob Lang. (see below)
This evening we welcome Spring and the weather is forecasted to be lovely the next two days (minus some rain). I hope everyone enjoys some fun, peace, and laughter. I’m going to make sure to watch Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems today at 1pm, find a quiet place to say the Rosary at 4pm, and I will be following our online learning all day. I have seen some great things being done at home and sharing with teachers through Google Classroom, Class Portals, IXL, and great pictures and videos! It’s wonderful to stay OLOL strong in this time apart!
Have a blessed day,

Today at 4pm the Pope has asked us to say the Rosary with him:
Amid worsening conditions related to the global coronavirus outbreak, Pope Francis urged Catholics to unite spiritually to pray the rosary simultaneously on the Feast of St. Joseph.
The pope invited every family, every individual Catholic, and every religious community to pray the Luminous mysteries on Thursday, March 19 at 9:00 pm Rome time. The initiative was initially proposed by the bishops of Italy.
Accounting for the time zone difference, the time indicated by the pope would be 4 p.m. Thursday for faithful on the East Coast.
Translation of the Pope's message:
Tomorrow we will celebrate the Solemnity of Saint Joseph. In life, work, family, joy and sorrow he always sought and loved the Lord, meriting the praise of Scripture as a just and wise man. Always invoke him with confidence, especially in difficult times, and entrust your lives to this great Saint.
I join in the appeal of the Italian bishops who in this health emergency have promoted a moment of prayer for the whole country. Every family, every faithful, every religious community: all united spiritually tomorrow at 9 p.m. in the recitation of the Rosary, with the Mysteries of Light. I will accompany you from here.
We are led to the luminous and transfigured face of Jesus Christ and His Heart by Mary, Mother of God, health of the sick, to whom we turn with the prayer of the Rosary, under the loving gaze of Saint Joseph, Guardian of the Holy Family and of our families. And we ask him to take special care of our family, our families, especially the sick and the people who are taking care of them: doctors, nurses, and volunteers, who risk their lives in this service.
Joke of the Day- Thank You to Jacob Lang, Gr. 2!
Happy Birthday to:
Ms. Amy Moore is the Principal of Our Lady of Lourdes School.
