Catholic Schools Week and Why We Love Them MARTIN FAMILY MOMENTS - January 26, 2015 ... when I got to college, I remember thinking high school was much harder! The smaller class size meant the teachers knew us individually and our classmates were all friends. There were plenty of social opportunities (like sports teams and clubs) that I never felt deprived in any way. After getting through most of high school in a nice Christian environment, I knew a Catholic college was what my heart desired. John-Paul as St. Michael for All Saints Day The five years I spent at ...http://martinfamilymoments.blogspot.com/2015/01/catholic-schools-week-and-why-we-love.html

This date marks the end of the 40 day-long " Christmastide ," which corresponds to the 40 days of Lent.

This and That DARWINCATHOLIC - November 1, 2014 ... Before I condemn myself for my messy kitchen or my spoiled schedule or my loss of temper, I need to have the full picture. Did I receive bad news that threw me off? Was the baby particularly clingy, or a child full of demands? Are my hormones out of whack?
