Good morning Hawks,

As a community, we worked incredibly hard together earlier this year to adapt to remote learning during COVID-19 and the reality is such that we will do it again, and we will keep getting better at it each day! The pandemic has presented challenges. Yet, despite some of the challenges, there have also been many successes and our Haller community keeps adjusting with determination, perseverance…and even enthusiasm! 

We all remain hopeful that we will be able to get back into the school learning together again soon.

Kind reminder, during remote learning we will continue to take attendance each day both in the morning and again in the afternoon. Our answering machine is available 24 hours a day and Mrs. Neves will be making calls to anyone who is absent from remote learning. If your child is not going to be present for online learning please call the school to let us know. If your child needs to log off earlier than the end of the scheduled day, please call in to let us know that as well.  Thank you

Congrats to our WELLNESS WINNERS this week.  Students will receive a swag bag with a Haller water bottle and a Booster Juice gift card!!  Stay active, stay healthy:

Parish Updates:

We are joyous that our grade 2 students were able to receive The Sacrament of Reconciliation over the spring break.  Reconciliation shows us that God is love and that He is always ready to forgive, no matter what the wrong.  In reconciliation, we are reminded that God already knows the secrets of our hearts, but sometimes we need to name these aloud in order to prepare our hearts to renew the experience of God’s love and forgiveness. We are thankful to Father Larry and all the work of the church & school staff in our sacramental preparations.  Thank you to Mrs. Mikuljan who prepared her students at school in collaboration with the church. Congratulations boys and girls!

Father Larry shared with us that the celebrations were among the most peaceful he has celebrated in 23 years of priesthood.  All families and children were very respectful and the time in the church provided some peace and quiet for families to spend together.

Moving forward however, the other sacraments of initiation (First Communion and Confirmation) are suspended until further notice due to the Stay at Home Order.  More information will be provided when it becomes available.

 Thank you for your understanding.

**Previously Scheduled Dates: First Holy Communion: Saturday June 5th at 1:00pm;  Confirmation: Saturday June 5th at 3:00pm

Please call the Parish Office if you have any concerns or questions about mass times or sacraments  (519) 742-5061
