The Sisters have served at St. Michael Parish and School in Worthington since receiving the 2011 invitation of then Bishop Frederick Campbell. St. Michael is a diocesan school where the Sisters serve as principal and teachers.
With gratitude to our pastor, Fr. Dinovo, the Sisters are rejoicing with families, staff and parishioners of St. Michael’s for the blessings of the year. While it was sad to see the reassignment of Bishop Brennan to Brooklyn, we welcomed Bishop Fernandes to the Diocese of Columbus on the Feast of the Visitation.
Highlights of our school year include:
• the gradual return of more in-person activities, including our weekly All School Mass and the Labor Day Weekend Parish Festival;
• accompanying students in prayer as they received Baptism and the Sacraments of Initiation;
• deepening our K-8 education and catechesis on the dignity of the human person in keeping with the Christian anthropology of John Paul II;
• the school’s recognition by the Ohio Department of Education as a Purple Star school, which reflects our support for military families and practice of patriotism;
• Eucharistic blessing of the school during Catholic Schools Week;
• joining faithful women in prayer at the annual Columbus Catholic Women’s Conference;
• our parish mission with Andrew Petiprin and Joe Zambon, fellows at the Word on Fire Institute;
• Participating in 40 Days for Life with our students;
• celebrating the solemn profession of Sister Anna Marie of Jesus from the Dominican Nuns at the Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary in Heath, Ohio; and welcoming Bishop Earl Fernandes!
We wish to take this moment to thank everyone for their prayers and support.
