Autumn Is Upon Us

The weeks since the first day of school have flown by. Our hope is that you remain safe and well, and that you are weathering the autumn chill. What wonderful weather we had this weekend for the Hawktoberfest. Thank you one and all for making it an amazing Saturday to remember. The planning committee headed by Heather Morgan, and all of the great volunteers as well as the Knights of Columbus did a fabulous job. Thank you all so much for your gifts of time and talent.

Speaking of the Knights of Columbus, the St. George Parish Knights, surprised us with a wonderful donation for our SUCCESS program this morning. The Student Council gratefully accepted the donation on behalf of our school. Our SUCCESS program is well on it’s way to meeting our goal. Thank you all!


God of all seasons, we thank you for Autumn.

We thank you

for the touch of coolness in the air that gives us a new burst of energy,

for the coloring of trees that shows the creativity of the Divine Artist,

for the falling leaves that reveal the strength of the branches,

for the hues of fields that bring peace to our souls,

for the smiles on pumpkins that bring joy to children,

for the fall harvest which that brings us gratitude for the bounty of our land,

for this change of seasons that reveals the circle of life.

God of all seasons, as you transform the earth, transform us by your Spirit.


— Rev. Doug Leonhardt, S.J.
