Please note:
On Wednesday, March 28, Father Tim will celebrate a Seder Meal with all students in grades 5 - 8. This is a Holy Week tradition here at St. Timothy School. All students in grades 5- 8 must buy lunch on 3/28. All students in kindergarten through grade 4 must bring a packed lunch.

Here's some information about Seder from CatholicCulture.org:

In the Christian tradition the Passover Seder is ... believed to be when Jesus instituted the Eucharist. Gathered around the supper table with his disciples, Jesus told them, "I have longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; because, I tell you, I shall not eat it again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

Then, taking a cup, he gave thanks and said, 'Take this and share it among you, because from now on, I tell you, I shall not drink wine until the kingdom of God comes'.

Then he took some bread, and when he had given thanks, broke it and gave it to them, saying, 'This is my body which will be given for you; do this as a memorial of me'. He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood which will be poured out for you.'" (Luke 22:15-20)

This Christian observance of this ritual meal celebrates not only our tradition of Christ's last supper but our own Jewish heritage which provided the context for Jesus' institution at the last supper.

A Valentine Prayer

I said a Valentine prayer for you and asked the Lord above
to fill your heart and bless your soul with the precious gift of love.

I asked Him for sincere love, the kind that's meant to stay
Just like the generous love you give to those you touch each day.

I prayed for love from family and from every cherished friend
Then I asked the Lord to give you His love that knows no end.
