April 6, 2020 – Monday of Holy Week
Dear Students and Families of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy,
We at OLPHCA are a family that enjoys being together. Over the last few weeks, that togetherness has looked quite different. We find ourselves connecting on-screen and online more now than ever. However, we are still together. Mrs. DeLuca and the faculty and staff have been working tirelessly to ensure that the excellent learning experiences central to the life of OLPHCA continue without a hitch. Our educators are to be commended.
This is Holy Week, the most sacred week in Catholic life. Listening to the constant flow of ever-changing bad news must be disheartening for all. However, it’s still Holy Week, a week of hope. Jesus’ suffering and death – which He undertook willingly out of pure love – ends in the glory of Easter morning. The sorrowful moment in history in which we are living will not last forever. Alive is the hope of putting away the masks, reopening the doors, and gathering again. The same Jesus who lived, died, and rose long ago was with us before this crisis. He will be with us when it’s over. Most importantly, He’s with us now, as we live through it. Coronavirus is temporary. Jesus is eternal. Let’s have hope in Him. Pray in the silence of your heart – He hears.
Though our church and academy doors are temporarily closed, we are united as a family in prayer, probably more closely now than ever even though we are physically apart. Know that you are never, ever alone. We stand on the “rock” of faith in Jesus, not on the “sand” of our fears. Mary, Our Lady of Perpetual Help and Mother of Sorrows, prays with and for us and never leaves us.
Our wonderful school will be open soon. God bless you. Happy Easter and thank you for being part of our family.
In Jesus and Our Lady,
The Board of Directors of OLPHCA
