Passover Meal

This Thursday April 13th, there is the Passover Meal. The Passover Meal is important to our Catholic faith because we remember it as the last supper. It started as The Seder Meal which was shared with Christians and Jewish people. The Seder Meal is Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday, Passover. Passover is a commemoration of Jewish liberation by God from slavery in Egypt and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses.

Great Falls Catholic School Concert

Band Concert

            So last Thursday March 30th, our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade band and choir had a combined concert with Holy Spirit’s Band and Choir, and also with Great Falls Central’s band and choir. Each grade sung and played one song each and then the Lourdes 6th grade played with Holy Spirit’s 6th grade and they played great. Near the end of the concert was all three of the schools choir sang a song, and then Our Lady Lourdes 7th and 8th grade, Holy Spirit’s 7th and 8th grade, and finally Central’s band all played the closing song “The Forge of Vulcan”. The concert ended up sounding really good and was a great success.

Movie Reviews

Moana is a fantasy/action movie that came out in November. It’s rated PG. Moana, A Hawaiian teenager, teaches kids about bravery and perseverance while trying to save her island using song and playful dialogue. Teamed with a brute Hawaiian demigod named Maui and a brain-dead chicken named Hei-Hei, Moana travels across the sea to save the heart of her island. This is truly a family movie, rated five stars by a group of third and fifth grade girls.

Doctor Strange is a Fantasy/Science Fiction movie that came out in November of this year. It’s rated PG-13, and wouldn’t be recommended to some of our younger readers due to some violence and language. Dr. Stephen Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) is a world-famous surgeon who lost his hand in a car accident. To save the use of his hands and his carefully-built career, Strange travels to a remote area in Asia. Full of action, surprise, and mystery, this movie is surely one that will excite.

This morning I woke up and I was 2 inches tall...

Our next contest for the Irish Ink is a short story contest. We have asked the student body to finish the sentence “this morning I woke up and I was two inches tall.” We will feature one of the entries every week. This week’s featured entry is from Wyatt Weir, a kindergartner:

This morning I woke up and I was two inches tall… I would parachute off of my bed, crawl under my bedroom door, ride my cat to the kitchen, and use a jet pack to get up to the table.

Nice job Wyatt!

5th Grade Living Way of the Cross

Thank you to Lori Purpura and Mrs. McMillen for helping the 5th grade prepare the Living Way of the Cross.  It was a very thoughtful, reverent depiction of the death of Christ. It made us all reflect on how we treat others and how we can strive to live more like Christ.
Great Job, 5th Grade!!

3rd Grade Blessing

Fr. Herbert Magaso, who is filling in for Bishop Warfel until a new priest for OLL is chosen, blesses the rosaries the 3rd graders made for Chinook.  The rosaries are beautiful--the children selected specific beads and made them on their own. Thanks for helping them out, Mrs. Zaremski! (Development and 3rd grade parent)
These and many other great student projects will be for sale at the Chinook fundraiser on Jan. 30!!  See you there!
