Dance Invitation – Lansdale Catholic

My name is Andrew Guippone, a Junior at Lansdale Catholic High School. I’m emailing you on behalf of the Lansdale Catholic students and staff to invite you and your students to our 9 hour dance marathon, on Saturday May 19, 2018, to help kids in need around the Philadelphia area. We are donating the money raised to four different charities, one including your Schools, the AOPS Special Education Schools. We would love if you and/or some of your students could make it for part or all of the day, but if not there is no hurt. Please let us know! To contact our Principal of Activities: Mr. Moran at rmoran@lansdalecatholic.com. For more information please contact us or click here.


The Outreach Ministry of St. Katherine Day School

Invites us to Honor the Queen of May, Our Mother Mary!


To honor our Mother Mary during the month of May, both campuses of St. Katherine Day School are collecting items for Mothers’ Home in Darby, PA. Mothers’ Home is a residential shelter which provides a safe haven for up to 28 women during their pregnancy and for the first 6 months after their babies are born. To support these mothers, we are collecting:


  • Baby lotion
  • Baby wash
  • Baby wipes
  • Baby socks (0-6 months)
  • Diapers (Newborn-Size 2)


The collection period begins Tuesday, May 1 and ends Wednesday, May 25.


We thank you in advance for your generosity and the opportunity to teach your child about the importance of helping others! Any questions regarding this project can be directed to:

Emma Strobel, Room 2 Teacher at estrobel@stkds.org or

Blake Campbell, Religion Coordinator at bcampbell@stkds.org.

A Prayer for A Stressed Out Mom

May you have clarity of thought and a morsel of sanity today. May you know that His grace is enough. For every season, every tantrum, every question, every failure. It is enough. Always.

May you know that you are wildly loved by your Father, just as you are. Not because of what you accomplished today, or didn’t. Or how you feel about God at this moment, or whether you complained, or spent time reading your bible, or messed up in the worst way, or celebrated a victory. He adores you, just because.

And with of this knowledge, may you feel empowered to love your children the same way. The way God asks you to, the way your kids deserve, and the way you want to.

May you feel equipped to tackle every challenge, every situation, and every day with courage and joy even if you have to “start over” 10 times by 9 a.m.

May excitement fill your heart every morning for all that the day can be. Your children are your treasure, and this day is a gift– may you fully embrace it all.

May you lay your head down at night with a heart that is bursting and memories too plentiful to count. May you know unspeakable joy at the end of the day.


May you recognize that though these days are so (so, so, so, so) long, the years are short. They are a breath. And as you exhale yours in the darkness of the night, may your cup overflow with thanksgiving. May your dreams be sweet and your sleep be restful. 

May the Mother Mary guide you today and always.
