"Lent is a time of grace, a time to convert and live out our baptism fully." (Pope Francis)
Our Evergreen Catholic Schools faith theme for 2016-2017 is Rejoicing in God's Mercy. The theme was chosen to highlight the Jubilee of Mercy (December 2015 through November 2016) proclaimed by Pope Francis. The scripture verse that supports our theme is from St. Paul's Letter to the Romans (Romans 15.13): May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our faith is like a house. We build our junior kindergarten, senior kindergarten and grade 1 through grade 4 house of faith on a strong foundation; one that requires us to be diligent in our practices, as Christians, to weather all storms. The foundation of our faith is the Word of God and we cannot build a great faith life without God's guidance and loving care.
St. Gregory the Great, a music lover and patron saint of teachers, was pope from 590-604 A.D. He is a Doctor of the Church and Gregorian chant (plainchant), the traditional chant of the Catholic Church, takes its name from him.
