He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit” John 20:22

Amazed and Astonished

Like tulips long lying hidden

Suddenly springing forth

Making beauty out of sunlight

Like soil caught and turned,

Warm, moist, and ready for seed,

Opening its heart for growing

Like spring speaking to the day

About the goodness of the earth,

Patterning green on every plain

Like trickles of raindrops

Smoothing earth’s rough edges,

Healing hardened hillsides

Like all those quiet miracles

So is the coming of the Spirit

Telling of the surge of life

Urging me to gaze again

Upon my very common days

to look within and be amazed.

-Joyce Rupp

Think back upon those many ordinary days this year. What have the quiet miracles been for you?

When have you felt those Spirit –filled times of being amazed at the graces in the ordinary moments?

Dear parents and caregivers,

  1. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all of the members of the school council and the Notre Dame school community members who treated the Notre Dame staff to a Staff Appreciation Luncheon on Thursday. It was delicious and so appreciated! We are so grateful to have such a fabulous school council who is so actively involved in supporting our school in so many ways! Thank you!!

  1. Did you know that you should get your child’s eyes checked regularly? Eye exams are recommended for children beginning at the age of six months old, again between two and five years old, and every year after starting school. Eye exams are free with an OHIP card for children 19 and under. Click here for signs that your child may need glasses.
