Today begins the Triduum, the holiest (and shortest) liturgical season in the Catholic Church! We will soon celebrate the Mass of the Lord’s Supper at our parishes, both commemorating the Institution of the Eucharist and beginning the journey with our Lord through His Passion and Death.

Masses will be celebrated at all three of our parishes today. Pope St. Pius X will begin its celebration at 6:00 pm, followed by adoration at the Altar of Repose until midnight. St. Thomas the Apostle will begin its celebration at 7:00 pm, followed by adoration until 10:00 pm. St. George will also begin its celebration at 7:00 pm, followed by adoration until 9:00 pm.

Together We’re Better!

This week, HFCS is thanking all of our wonderful VOLUNTEERS! Our partnership with parents and volunteers is one of the most beautiful aspects of our community. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your time, your talent, and your dedication and commitment to Catholic education in North Idaho. May God bless you abundantly for your generosity and love!

Welcome Back!

I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing spring break! It was so fun to see all of the children’s smiling faces today; the building really comes to life when the students are here. This is the last week of the third quarter; there’s no school on Friday so the teachers can work on grades and report cards. We look forward to visiting with you next week during Parent/Teacher conferences!

New Website Announcement!

After many months of hard work and dedication by many HFCS parents, our new website is launched! It is my hope that this new website shares the story of HFCS with new and prospective families while also being a useful resource for our current community. Please bear with us as we troubleshoot the bugs that inevitably creep in to any new technological venture. Enjoy browsing through our site! If you’re a prospective family, welcome to HFCS! We look forward to getting to know you. If you’re a current family, thank you for being a vibrant part of our wonderful community. Many blessings to you and yours! Stay safe in this crazy winter weather.

Message From The Principal

Dear Holy Family Community,

When we hire new staff, I spend a lot of time in prayer; we are often blessed with highly qualified applicants who are anxious to be a part of our HFCS community. Our interviewing process is complete, and I’m very pleased to announce that Mrs. Maureen Randall will be joining our HFCS faculty as our new first grade teacher! Mrs. Randall has over 20 years experience in Catholic schools, teaching Kindergarten at St. Charles in Spokane. Mrs. Randall has been a great asset this year, working as a substitute teacher and currently substituting long-term in the 1st grade, since Mrs. Porter-Brown had to leave us. Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Randall to HFCS; she is a great blessing to our community!

This week is staff appreciation week. We are incredibly blessed in our staff; they are individuals who are dedicated to the spiritual and academic excellence of our students—and we all work together to ensure that our school stays focused on our mission and vision. Thank you, our incredible staff! You are amazing!

In the Peace of Christ,
Bridgit Arkoosh
