Scripture Quote


The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus.  He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said."

  From Matthew 28:5-6



Reflection


"Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust: he is life!  He is with you and he will give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as he would have you do."

 

   Pope Francis

OFFICIAL NOTICE: Rockville Centre - Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure (75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.  In conformity with IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.  Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.
