While times are tough, we think it’s also important to recognize the “silver linings” that situations like these bring to light. We are certainly blessed to be members of a Catholic community and appreciate the blessings God continues to bring into our lives even amid this calamity. If possible, we would like to hear from you on the “good things” that have come out of this quarantine. If you can send pictures, that would be great, as I would love to share them on our social media platforms.
Supporting Our Community
These are challenging times for all of us, but we know we are better together. And one thing the St. Francis community does better than most is support each other.

Haven’t had a chance to watch the Virtual Dance Showcase yet?
For those of you that don’t know about our annual Spring Dance Showcase, it’s a culmination of student choreographed works (usually performed live). Juniors & Seniors work with underclassmen in their respective companies to create original work and this year was no different! The amount of creativity and collaboration that the students had this year was exciting! The video now includes ALL student works. (I had many technical issues!)

Fr. Stanley from Presentation Parish will be celebrating Mass daily in the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist convent chapel, and streaming it on the parish Youtube channel during this quarantine. It can be watched live or later at your family’s convenience. Other churches are streaming the Mass, but everyone is invited to participate on-line. All are welcome!

Michelle Reagans’ theology classes were using a mash-up of Zoom and Pear Deck for their lesson yesterday. Before they began they prayed and students shared their intentions. Here is a little snippet. Thank you for sharing Ms. Reagan, we are so grateful for you, and all that you are doing for your students ❤️
Some fun video submissions from the Zoo Crew Instagram for the weekly TikTok Tuesday
Rosalva (Romo) Willow from class of 1988, and currently a photography instructor at SFHS. She recently posted this spectacular photo of hers paired with a poem, and shared “I’m hoping to inspire my photography students to find beauty in the ordinary while they shelter in place so I’ve been thinking a lot about Emily Dickinson. I went out into my backyard to practice what I preach, found this pretty feather dangling from a camellia and took the picture. Then, I looked up Emily Dickinson and this was the first poem I stumbled across.” #TroubieHeroes
