    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: The Power of Love

    Marie Campione
    From Fr. Tommy: Here is a quote from Rabbi Harold Kushner about Love and what each of us can do:
     
    “None of us has the power to make someone else love us. But we all have the power to give away love, to love other people. And if we do so, we change the kind of person we are, and we change the kind of world we live in."

    From the School Nurse: Bad Flu Season Ahead

    Marie Campione (lk)
    CDC Flu Report: At Least 6.2 Million Sick This Season 
    At this point during the 2018-2019 flu season, 6.2 million to 7.3 million people have been sick with flu. Looking back at last year, CDC estimates that the burden of illness during the 2017–2018 season was high with an estimated 48.8 million people getting sick with influenza. Chances are good the flu will be around us, so please get your Flu Shot (if not medically contraindicated).

    People who are sick with flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:
    Fever* or feeling feverish/chills.
    Cough.
    Sore throat.
    Runny or stuffy nose.
    Muscle or body aches.
    Headaches.
    Fatigue (tiredness)
    Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.
    Think you might have the flu? Check out this 2 minute video to learn more.

    Weekly Devotional Passage from the School Chaplain: A New Beginning

    From Fr. Tommy: Below are some wise words from Henri Nouwen concerning A New Beginning that I believe are appropriate as we are at the start of a new calendar year:
     
    A New Beginning
    We must learn to live each day, each hour, yes, each minute as a new beginning, as a unique opportunity to make everything new. Imagine that we could live each moment as a moment pregnant with new life. Imagine that we could live each day as a day full of promises. Imagine that we could walk through the new year always listening to the voice saying to us: “I have a gift for you and can’t wait for you to see it!” Imagine.
