BE A SAINT! EVANGELIZATION BY ATTRACTION
Holy Family Parish Mission, Nov 26, 2014
The Fathers of Mercy: The Congregation of The Fathers of Mercy was founded in 1808, originally under the title of “The Missionaries of France.“ The community was founded for the purpose of reevangelizing the French people after the Catholic Faith had been subjected to years of attacks and persecution during the French Revolution. It is now an exclusively American community, headquartered in South Union, KY. The primary apostolate for the Fathers of Mercy is to conduct parish missions and retreats in order to reevangelize and revitalize the faith of those who hear.
Fr. Andy Cravalho, our presenter: Fr. Andy was born in Honolulu, HI and grew up in northern California before graduating from Mother of Divine Grace homeschooling curriculum in 2001. He graduated from Franciscan University in Steubenville in 2005 with a B.A. in journalism. After working as a sports journalist in California, Fr. Andy felt God’s call to the priesthood. He entered the Fathers of Mercy in 2006 and took first vows in 2007. Fr. Andy received his M.A. in Moral Theology from Holy Apostles Seminary in Cromwell, CT and was ordained to the priesthood in June 2012. After a year serving in four parishes in the Diocese of Louisville, Fr. Andy was reassigned to the Fathers of Mercy missions

Private School Tuition Tax Break:
One of the biggest decisions parents make is where to send their children to school. For some families, the choice is simple; the local public school is the best place for them. It might even be the same school the parents went to when they were young. Some families are looking for something different though, which might mean a private school, a public school in another district or a virtual charter school. Making the choice to send your children to private school just got a little more affordable, under a new tax deduction included in the recently approved state budget.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
Thank you for your interest in Prairie Catholic Schools. St. Gabriel’s campus is our elementary school, and encompasses grades Pre-K though 4th, and St. John’s campus is our middle school which entails grades 5th through 8th. Additionally, on-site daycare is available at the St. Gabriel’s campus.

The entire staff at Prairie Catholic appreciates the fact that you are willing to consider our school, and wish you to know that this is greatly appreciated. The education of our youth is an honor and a great responsibility that we do not take lightly.
A Catholic school offers a unique environment with very special opportunities for its students to grow spiritually. Prairie Catholic is no different. Our setting allows educators to share their faith and values while educating their students, your children. We are committed to helping children grow in faith and love and to display respect and fellowship. Prairie Catholic does not discriminate based on faith and includes many non-Catholic families. These families appreciate our caring, student-centered environment that teaches children to follow Christ’s command to love one another and treat others with respect.
Prairie Catholic provides a strong academic curriculum and a safe learning environment for students to reach their greatest potential. We support each child by recognizing his or her own talents and instilling an appreciation for the gifts of others. This atmosphere fosters a mutual respect for one another.
We encourage, and are committed to, a cooperative partnership between family and school. We seek to work with you as parents, in helping your child become the best they can be. We believe in the mutual relationship of school supporting family and family supporting school.
At Prairie Catholic, we are positive people – learning, loving and living our faith. We aspire to create a place where your child is safe, happy and knows they are special.
