Decades party!


Letter from the Board

At this beautiful Christmas season there is nothing better than feeling the Presence of God in the midst of our everyday experiences. It is my vision that every one of you find a way to connect with God through this holiday season and feel the gift of this sharing time with your family in laughter, love and fun gatherings of light-hearted reflections of our Christ Spirit.  

 I am sharing a beautiful Christmas Prayer from St. John Paul II

 “May the Virgin Mary help us to open the doors of our hearts to Christ, Redeemer of man and of history; may she teach us to be humble, because God looks upon the lowly; may she enable us to grow in understanding the value of prayer, of inner silence, of listening to God’s Word; may she spur us to seek God’s will deeply and sincerely, even when this upsets our plans; may she encourage us while we wait for the Lord, sharing our time and energies with those in need.

Mother of God, Virgin of expectation, grant that the God-who-comes will find us ready to receive the abundance of his mercy.

May Mary Most Holy, “Woman of the Eucharist” and Virgin of Advent, prepare us all to joyfully welcome Christ’s coming and to celebrate worthily his sacramental presence in the mystery of the Eucharist.”

Wishing all of you a Blessed and Wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Thank you for your all you do.


The entire OLGCA Board

Dear Parents of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy,

I would like to congratulate the second graders on receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation on Saturday, December 7th. Congratulations to our newly appointed 2019-2020 Student Council who were inducted on Friday, December 6th.

I would like to send out a special thank you to Mr. Amaury, Miss Dana and Mrs. Inserillo for making this special event happen.  Your hard work, endless hours preparing, and dedication on making this event wonderful was apparent in all of the smiling children and families. Thank you to all of Santa’s elves, Santa and Mrs. Claus for participating and assisting in this fun- filled day.

            Last night was a beautiful fun night filled with lots of smiles, laughs and love .Each and every one of your children worked so hard over the last few months. The show performed by the students in grades 6-8 was a true meaning of what Christmas is all about. I was never so proud and honored to be part of such a wonderful place. Thank you to all of the teachers and staff members for your countless hours of hard work to make the show a success. Thank you to all of the parents and relatives that joined us for: “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Spectacular”!
