God, grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change,

the courage to change the things I can,

and the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time,

enjoying one moment at a time;

accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;

taking, as Jesus did,

this sinful world as it is,

not as I would have it;

trusting that You will make all things right

if I surrender to Your will;

so that I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with You forever in the next.

Amen.

Please join us for evening prayer tonight and every Tuesday in May at 8:00 p.m. on Google Meet.  The access code is "Campus Ministry".

The State of Ohio and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati have made several recommendations and mandates that will necessitate a change in our plans for the end of the year and this summer.  The following plans are in place based on the information we have now.  As always, these plans are subject to change according to status of the pandemic and orders that may be in place.

Our school year will end a couple of days earlier for all students. The seniors' last day of class will be May 14. All underclassmen will finish their classes on May 21. There will be no final exams.

Prom and After-Prom are canceled.  We’ll post a video with songs the students choose, pictures, and video of the king and queen on Saturday, May 15 at 8:00 p.m. We’ll have a celebration for our seniors at a time to be determined later.

On May 22, seniors will come to school and return books and athletic uniforms, gather belongings, and get their caps and gowns.  All the teachers will be in the building, but we will have the students carefully spread throughout the day. All social distancing, mask, and occupancy requirements will be followed.  More details about the day will follow as it draws near.

Underclass students will be brought in to take care of end of year business on May 27–29. Again, more information will follow as the school year comes to an end.

Graduation will look much different this year but will still be a special and memorable experience. Graduates and their families will come in for individual ceremonies between June 5-7. Speeches will be read, awards and diplomas will be given, and the whole event will be recorded and compiled into a video for the graduates to keep.  We will hold a special Mass and recognition service for all graduates and their families as soon as the Church will allow for such a gathering.  Detailed information will be sent to seniors and their families very soon. If you are a graduating senior that will report to the military before June 5, please contact me right away so we can arrange an individual event for your family before you leave.

All summer camps scheduled for the month of June have been canceled. We are working on virtual options for some of our academic camps, and the others will possibly reschedule for July. Stay tuned!

These are most certainly challenging times, but I assure you that your Carroll family will continue to give our very best so that our students can finish the year strong, be recognized for their accomplishments, and be prepared for a successful future be it in the next phase of their life or right back here in the halls of Carroll next fall!

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
beside restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul. 
He guides me in right paths for his name's sake.
Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil; 
for you are at my side with your rod and your staff
that give me courage. 
You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes; 
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 
Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life; 
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
for years to come. 

Good afternoon,

The above Psalm, certainly one of the most well-known, was read at Mass on Sunday.  Even though this Psalm was selected for this day long ago, it's always fascinating to me how the Holy Spirit knows exactly what we need to hear.  Psalm 23 is a strong reminder that even in the most challenging times, the Lord is with us.  Guiding us to find hope and filling us with joy.  God places family, friends, classmates, and teachers around us each day to love, support, and provide for our every needs.  Netflix goes a long way as well during these times, but God provides in many ways!  He is with us always, but we must be open to His presence.  

I think it is important to acknowledge that the total impact of this pandemic is both personal and far reaching.  The physical, emotional, and mental health of every member of society is at risk, and we have a responsibility to take care of our fellow humans.  I thank all Carroll families for stepping up to do what's right for the common good, for accommodating the unique needs of your children during online learning, and for expressing your gratitude to our teachers for their extraordinary efforts.  Even though the immediate future is unknown, I am confident that the Carroll community will rise to the top and be stronger moving forward as a result.

It's still a great day to be a Patriot!
