Principal’s Corner #146


On Saturday May 13th, Pope Francis canonized two shepherd children on the centenary of several visions they received from the Blessed Mother. The pope proclaimed Francisco and Jacinta Marto saints. Francisco and Jacinta aged 9,7 and their 10 year old cousin, Lucia, repeated that on March 13th, 1917 they had seen the Virgin Mary and this was the first of many appearances to them while they grazed their sheep. Our children have two beautiful saints to pray to and ask for their guidance. Saint Francisco, pray for us. Saint Jacinta, pray for us.

I wish you peace and blessings this Easter season.
