Celebrating The Divine Mercy

What is the Divine Mercy?

 The message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy
is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an
uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the
revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before
her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had
begun to spread.


Divine Mercy Devotional

The message of mercy is that God loves us — all of us —
no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that
His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon
Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to
others. Thus, all will come to share His joy. It is a message
we can call to mind simply by remembering ABC.

A — Ask for His Mercy. God wants us to approach
Him in prayer constantly, repenting of our sins and
asking Him to pour His mercy out upon us and upon
the whole world.

B — Be merciful. God wants us to receive His mercy
and let it flow through us to others. He wants us to
extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does
to us.

C — Completely trust in Jesus. God wants us to know
that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our
trust. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will

Google Classroom Part Two

Google Seminar – Hands On!


I wanted to thank all the parents who took the time to be here at Ascension in the Lab this past Friday evening.  For those who came they received the User Name and Password to their child’s Google Classroom Account.  They where shown how to log-in and view assignments.  This is a very important step because as we move forward students will need to become more accountable for the learning that is taking place and this involves all parents and teachers equally to help our students in this process.

Many of the parents who came to part 1 asked for a hands-on class.  So it is my great pleasure to announce that Mrs. De La Rosa was very happy that parents wanted a second class. The goal for part 2 is to open the computers in the Lab and login to your students accounts.  The three exercise’s  should take about an hour and will be very hands -on from start to finish.  Again, Miss D. Rueda, and Miss J. Rueda will be here to support the Spanish speakers in our community.

I am looking forward to this next event and hope many more parents can attend.  Tentatively we will be looking to hold two classes both being an hour on a Friday night from 5-6 and 6:30-7:30.   Please feel free to contact me directly after school or by email if you have any question, concerns, comments.
