Guardian Angel Medal Ceremony

Our annual Guardian Angel Ceremony was held this week for PreK and TREC students. The children entered our chapel wearing their Guardian Angel medals. Father Seth Lemaire presided over the ceremony and welcomed the students.

He began by saying, “Before you were born, God made SO many angels….more than the stars in the sky! But he made a special set of angels so that He could give each one of you your very own special angel. This special Guardian Angel was given to you to follow you from the moment you were born and will be with you for the rest of your life! They watch over and help protect you in so many ways. The mission of your Guardian Angel is to get you to Heaven." He said that we don’t know our angel’s names but we will know them when we get to Heaven.

Each child was called forward and their medals were blessed. Father Seth reminded the students that once anything is blessed by a Priest it is then considered sacred. You could tell that all the children felt they now had something very special!

In conclusion, the children recited their Guardian Angel prayer and homeroom classes took photos with Father Seth and thanked him for blessing their medals. It was a beautiful little ceremony.

VIP Students Recognized at Mass

This year we have implemented our VIP (Virtues in Practice) Program in grades PreK-8th. This program is designed to help each child deeply study and practice a particular virtue while recognizing his or her ability to live in holiness like the saints in heaven. Over the past month, our students have grown closer to God and have also studied the lives of Saint Martha, Saint Jerome, and Saint Augustine. Our hope is that they continue to look to the saints as role models of faith. The students shown in the attached photo were recognized at our school Mass this week. Our families are the primary educators of faith in the lives of their children. Thank you for your dedication and for your continued support and trust in the mission and vision of Cathedral-Carmel School!

Benches Donated to CCS

You may have noticed we have some beautiful wooden benches that have recently been placed around campus. A huge thank you to Dr. Jeff Laborde (CCHS '72) and Mr. Arturo Martinez, who built and donated them for our students! These wooden benches were handcrafted out of the same lumber as the bench seating around our magnolia trees on the front lawn.

Thank you, Dr. Laborde and Mr. Martinez, for your generosity and forethought of the needs of our campus!
