Attention Juniors and Seniors:  The Grand Rapids Rotary Club is a group of local business people and professionals who work together to solve community problems, provide humanitarian aid, and promote good will and peace.  Each year the club invites students from Catholic Central to join their group as Junior Rotarians.  As Junior Rotarians, students have the opportunity to attend Rotary luncheons 1-2 times per month, network with leaders in our community, and participate in service activities.  Please see Mr. Passinault in the Guidance Office if you are interested or would like more information.

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May God make you holy when you feel stalled and stuck and nothing seems to motivate you or move you forward in your journey. In these neutral places may you imagine God coming to rest beside you, grateful for the time to be with you in the idleness. May you take this time to notice where you are and to listen for the voices in your environment or within your heart. And may you experience the wordless presence of God in the quiet places. May the God of Abiding Presence be with you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
