Queen of Angels School | Closed Until Further Notice

Dear school families,

I pray this email finds you well during this challenging time.

Today Governor Inslee announced the closure of all schools by March 17th. The duration of the closure is uncertain. This closure includes any planned school events such as fundraisers, community events, and field trips. During this time, school buildings will not be open to children, parents, or community members.

We recognize the hardship this places on families; at the same time, we must act for the common good. Our government leaders urge us to take these steps to slow the spread of this global pandemic.

We will remain open for a half day on Monday. Learning materials will be sent home with students so they can continue to progress during the closure. We are committed to making sure that students continue to experience the care and commitment of our faculty and the routine of daily learning, even during the school closure. We must acknowledge that our approach to distance learning cannot replicate the magic that happens when school is in regular session (the invaluable social interactions and mediation, real-time, in-person feedback, community and extracurricular events, and so on). However, we do believe that quality learning can occur from a distance. Our faculty will communicate learning options and communication methods. This is a complex and evolving situation. We will continue to provide you with updates.

Our Lady, Queen of Angels. Pray for us!

Sincerely in Christ,
Thomas Cody McDonald

Hope During the Coronavirus

Bishop Barron | Word on Fire

Dcn. Stewart Adams shares this video from Bishop Robert Barron in hope that it will help answer the many questions we are currently facing. Please take a moment to watch it, and share it with friends and loved ones. (click image to play video)

The coronavirus outbreak has left countless people all over the world asking themselves: Why is God allowing this to happen? How do we respond? And where can we find hope? In this bonus episode of “The Word on Fire Show,” we discuss these and other questions, exploring the ancient problem of evil, the impact of the virus on Catholic sacramental life, and other spiritual dimensions and effects of this crisis.

Magnificat | Free Online

 

During this difficult time, when many of the faithful may be unable to attend Mass.

This publication offers the daily Mass readings, as well as morning, evening, and night prayer, plus daily devotionals, saint stories, and more.

Spiritual Communion

Parishioners may wish to consider a making an Act of Spiritual Communion when not receiving sacramentally. (Click here to download a printout with two suggested prayer options.) 

In his book, The Secret of Sanctity, Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales offers us a road map to a more profound participation in the Mass, even when we cannot receive Communion. He addresses the laity at a time in history when it was often not possible for the average person to participate in the Eucharist. His exhortation serves as a moving devotional aid at any time, but especially during this challenging season, when we might feel a little more disconnected during recorded Masses. (Click here to read or print.)

Sacramental Confession during Stay-at-Home Mandate

What if I can’t get out for confession? What if the priest cannot come? The Church has long held provisions for such extraordinary situations, but many may have had no reason to learn of them before now.

Monsignor Gerard O’Connor, director of the Office of Divine Worship in the Archidiocese of Portland, offers a lovely graphic with a recent message from the Holy Father Pope Francis, to remind us of what recourse we have to the infinite mercy of God during these difficult times. Click here for a print-friendly version.
