PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE


Dear Holy Rosary Families,
This week I have found myself struggling.  I am filled with shock, anger, and sadness at the senseless death of George Floyd.  I am sure I am not alone in these sentiments, and in the fact that we are all struggling in an already uncertain time.  I have found myself trying to figure out how to talk to my own children about the senseless act of violence and praying how best to support our school community when we cannot be together in person.  
As Catholics we believe that God created each of us in His image and therefore all life is to be cherished, honored, and respected.   As Archbishop Etienne stated recently  “These deaths are tragic, and they expose a symptomatic and deep-seated connection between institutional racism and the continued erosion of the sanctity of life. If we do not respond appropriately as a society, we will be tacitly acquiescing to the ongoing killing of unarmed black men. The senseless taking of life defies the fundamental principles of justice, every notion of dignity and the fact that all of our lives are connected. As human beings, we are responsible for each other.”
Our theme for this year was I am the Vine, You are the Branches.   We are called as Catholics, to be the eyes, hands, feet, and voice of Christ through our words and our actions.  We are the branches, and we carry out Christ’s works on earth.  This is inherent in our baptismal calling and is at the heart of Catholic Social Teachings.  As Catholics we cannot sit idly by during this time.  
All Catholic school principals have been asked to commit to how we will respond in our communities at this time and moving forward.  I know many of you are also facing a time of introspection on how you will respond as a family as well.  Though physically we cannot be together as a community, that does not mean we cannot act in communion with one another in response.   
Therefore, as a Catholic, a Catholic school principal, and a mother I commit to:

  • To create a safe and welcoming school community in which all students, staff, and families feel loved and accepted.
  • To challenge racist attitudes and ideas. 
  • To take a “listening stance.”
  • To understand that institutional racism exists everywhere, and we are called to make our schools anti-racist places. 
  • To nurture a generation of faith-filled, servant leaders.
  • To increase my own daily prayer, and to pray for the intercession of Augustus Tolton. He was the first African American priest in the USA and is only in need 2 miracles to become an official saint in our Canon.

I pray during this time of Pentecost that we are all able to allow the Holy Spirit to work within us as we all respond as “branches” in the vineyard of Christ, seeking peace and justice.  
I’ve included a list of resources below that you may find helpful to use as a family during this difficult time.  These conversations are important, so I encourage you to examine these resources.  I look forward to the opportunity to continue this important work as we approach the 20-21 school year.

Let me close in prayer:

God of justice, In your wisdom you create all people in your image, without exception. Through your goodness, open our eyes to see the dignity, beauty, and worth of every human being. Open our minds to understand that all your children are brothers and sisters in the same human family. Open our hearts to repent of racist attitudes, behaviors, and speech which demean others. Open our ears to hear the cries of those wounded by racial discrimination, and their passionate appeals for change. Strengthen our resolve to make amends for past injustices and to right the wrongs of history. And fill us with courage that we might seek to heal wounds, build bridges, forgive and be forgiven, and establish peace and equality for all in our communities. 
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen

In Christ,
Anna

PASTOR’S MESSAGE


As a priest, I have been with a number of people as they passed from this world in homes, care facilities and hospitals.  With the age of security cameras, cell phones and police body cameras, we now have the ability to experience something much different – watching someone’s life being taken from them not by illness or old age, but with violence.  Sometimes such actions are taken in self-defense or defense of others, which may or may not be necessary, and are still horrific.  But there are others where there is no apparent reason at all to me – there is a clear malice or disregard for life, or an unnecessary dangerous situation was created which resulted in someone being killed.
I have always avoided watching such footage, but in the last month have not – because I think it is important to not look away.  It is easy to forget and move on with life as time passes, which is what happens when they just remain stories.  We don’t like our lives to be messy, and so we keep the trauma of others at a distance, especially those not known or personally connected to us.
But Jesus doesn’t call us to keep others at a distance, which is the end result, intended or otherwise.  Just as He entered into our brokenness in love, so we must enter into one another’s brokenness in love.  With Christ there is no ‘other’ as we are called to live in communion with one another as brother and sister. 
Most of us will freely acknowledge, even if it isn’t our own experience, that our criminal justice system is not always just, that not all are treated equally before the law, that the law itself can be flawed as are those who commit themselves to its service.  But it is not enough to acknowledge that things are broken.  As we open our hearts more to one another, we experience family members whose suffering is caused by that brokenness.  And as we live more fully in that ongoing pain, we are more motivated to look for real ways to alleviate and/or prevent that suffering by fixing that which is broken to the best that we can.  Injustice and inequality has improved over the decades.  But there is no such thing as “good enough” as long as so many are so adversely affected by the weight of the past and the present, so long as lives of our sisters and brothers are being violently taken before our eyes.  What is needed is a conversion of hearts, and of systems, to embrace the great and equal dignity of all persons. 
A belief in superiority based on skin color or national identity is a moral evil.  Racism is a disease of the heart which seeks only to tear apart and destroy.  It is contrary to the love of God which seeks to embrace and lift up.  It is contrary to what it means to be human, as connectivity and uniqueness are knit into who we are, and who we as a nation are supposed to be.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  This is the promise of our nation, made almost 250 years ago, which we still haven’t fully realized.  This nation was an experiment in freedom – and the work is not yet finished.  The work is ours, and voting a few times a year is not nearly enough.  Since we are dealing with the hearts and lives of over three hundred million people in our nation, and countless systems and institutions, the work is not simple.  But as long as people remain other, as long as they remain just stories, it is too easy to go about our lives until we ourselves are impacted, or those close to us.  Which is why we need to draw closer to one another, and take ownership for what happens in our community by and to other members of our community, by and to other members of our family.  We need to listen and learn from each other.
May God help us to love one another better.

In Christ,
Fr. Oakland

COUNSELOR’S MESSAGE


Words cannot express how heartbroken I am for everything going on right now. I keep going back to the analogy of our year being 20/20 perfect vision, and the fact that we will continue to gain much clarity during this time. As a counselor I’ve learned to look at hardships as refining to life. People gain perspective of what matters. If I was going to compile and simplify what we are currently going through for kids, (and please forgive me for doing so), I would say that we can help them understand the importance of real relationships better across borders and within them, for ALL people. I truly hope we can leave this legacy for our kids when they look back at this time amidst all of the things that have happened, and be agents of change.
Here are some resources for books that showcase diversity. Below the book resources are simple steps that I have condensed for you from many psychology sources about simple steps of advocacy. 
https://thebrownbookshelf.com
https://www.commonsensemedia.org/lists/books-with-characters-of-color
https://www.commonsensemedia.org (Please take a look or refresh yourself on this resource. It is an overall great website to check out that gives information on specific age groups from kids and adults on popular movies and online games in general).
A list of helpful books on race and diversity for children:

  • “Whose toes are those” by Jabari Asim 
  • “Let’s talk about race” by Julius Lester
  • “Lovely” by Jess Hong
  • “Sugar plum ballerinas” by Whoopi Goldberg
  • “A kids book about racism” by Jelani Memory

Ways to engage with kids regarding current protesting:

  1. Be open and honest – some people get treated unfairly based on their skin color, culture, or religion. By doing this, we help prepare them to challenge issues when they arise. 
  2. Model it – Talking to your child about the importance of embracing differences and treating others with respect. Acknowledge differences and emphasize the positive aspects of our differences. 
  3. For older kids- Use current issues from the news, as a springboard for discussion.  Discuss the importance of valuing differences as essential, and also modeling this message. 
  4. Encourage equality and involvement – Promote ways that are safe for your family to get involved in causes you care about and educate them and yourselves. 
  5. Explain what protest means. Typical goals of non aggressive protest is to inspire positive social change and protection of human rights. 
  6. If they have fear, let them talk about it. Listen and encourage. Try not to shut them down when they open up. Sometimes it is simply someone sitting with you for a moment. It is ok to not have all the answers. Continue to talk, assess, and educate.

During this time, I keep going back to God’s two most important commandments. He said to love him… and, “The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” -Mark 12:31

Sincerely,
Selena Borne

Planning For The Fall

You’re likely wondering about what the fall will look like.  The short answer is that we don’t have a directive from the state yet as to whether or not schools will be allowed to open and what social distancing requirements will be necessary.  We are actively planning different ways we may open the school in the fall, if we can open and if we are required to implement social distancing.  We are seeking parent feedback as part of our planning. Look for a parent survey to come out on Monday, June 8th.  Thank you for providing feedback.

8th Grade Only Materials Drop Off

On Tuesday, June 9th at 6pm, we will have a Materials drop off for 8th graders ONLY. They will pick up their diplomas and any awards they have received. Please come in your graduation gown.

Preschool-8 Materials Drop Off And Pick Up

On Thursday, June 11th and Friday, June 12th, we will be collecting school materials that the students have taken home and RETURNING their personal items. This will be an involved process as parents and students are not able to come into the school at this time. To assist everyone in social distancing, a staff member will come to your car to collect textbooks, library books, electronics, CYO uniforms and anything else your child’s teacher has requested. You will then be given a bag with your child’s items. Below, you will find your assigned time listed by the first two letters of your last name. We ask that you arrive during your 30-minute window and park in front of the school.  Please have your child’s school items in a bag labeled with their name.  If you have more than one child, please put their items in separate bags labeled with each of their names. You will receive more detailed instructions from your child’s homeroom teacher. Thank you for your patience during this process.

We Say Goodbye….

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our school counselor, Selena Borne, at the conclusion of this school year.  Selena and her family have made the difficult decision to relocate back to the Portland area where they are from and where they have family.  Selena, we thank you for sharing your many gifts with the Holy Rosary School community these past two years.  We have appreciated the opportunity to work with you and are grateful for all we have learned from you.

Safe Environment

Twice a year, all students throughout the Archdiocese receive important instruction through the mandatory Archdiocesan Safe Environment Program.  We were set to provide this instruction in March/April.  With the sudden closure, many teachers were unable to do so.  We’ve been asked to provide this information to families and ask you to discuss this important material with your children.
Here is the link to the box where the lessons are provided:

During this time out of school, we still would like to continue our work as Missionary Disciples by supporting our students in Uganda.  If you are able, consider making a donation ($1/child/month, or perhaps consider making your donation for the remainder of the year) through the parish giving portal, OSV.  Visit the Holy Rosary Parish site (www.holyrosaryseattle.org) click on “online giving.”  If you don’t have an account, you will have to create one.  You can then make a one time gift to the Daughters of Mary.

Yearbooks!

The 2019-2020 yearbooks have arrived! Eighth grade received their books earlier this week in a surprise delivery. We are working out distribution for the rest of the school and are including a Holy Rosary Quarantine/Distance Learning insert and a Herff-Jones COVID19 insert, because the yearbook was sent to the publishing plant just days before school went “home”. If you did not order a yearbook in the fall and would like to purchase one, email Mr. Barker (jbarker@holyrosaryws.org) with your child’s name and classroom. Your FACTS account will be charged $30 per book. Quantity is limited so first come, first serve.
Congratulations to our 8th grade yearbook elective, who designed our yearbook using skills they’ve learned in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. A yearbook is not only a memory book, but a record and history book, a reference book, and a public relations book; not to mention an educational experience for everyone involved. We hope you enjoy it!

SUMMER CAMPS


CYO Camp Message

Dear CYO Camp Community,
I hope you and your families are doing well during this unprecedented time. I have spent the last few days drafting and deleting and redrafting this message. I am trying my best to articulate what needs to be said, and to be honest I’m struggling. I have had the pleasure of being the CYO camp director for the past six years. During that time, with the help of countless staff and volunteers, we have revitalized the program, and we were set to have record summer in 2020. Then COVID-19 hit.
We have spent the last month repeatedly redrafting staffing plans, sanitation schedules and camper programs based on constantly changing guidelines. We were holding on to hope that there would be adequate testing and treatment prior to the start of summer camp. As you are all aware, at this point there is not. I consulted with all our health care professionals, the American Camp Association and the leadership of the Archdiocese of Seattle. With their guidance, we have made the decision to cancel summer camps this year.
This decision is heartbreaking for me as the director, but even more so as a parent of campers in our programs. My son has been so excited about camp. This would have been his first summer at resident camp. I haven’t told my kids yet, but I will tonight. Unfortunately, this will be another hard conversation in an endless list of hard conversations we’ve had as a family this spring.
If you were registered for summer camp 2020, you will receive an email next week outlining your options. If you are in the position to donate part or all of your camp fees, we would greatly appreciate that, as this decision does put camp in a difficult financial position. We are also more than happy to apply your funds toward the 2021 summer. We also know this is a tough time, and if you need a full refund, we are happy to make that happen for you.
I know you are disappointed. I’m disappointed too. This would have been our 70th season of CYO summer camps. However, we will get through this. I encourage you to do what we do: lean into your faith during these times.
Yours in Christ,
Shaune P. Randles
Director of CYO Camping

PARISH NEWS


1st Communion Registration Is Open

Sacraments are gifts from God and First Sacraments are a very significant part of your child’s faith journey.  Second Grade is the year in which most children prepare for and receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion (Eucharist) for the first time.  Our Children’s Ministry Team facilitates Children’s Sacraments for Holy Rosary Parish.  Even with the pandemic that we are now facing, Sacramental Preparation is still ongoing.
If your child has been baptized Catholic and missed First Holy Communion during second grade, you can register them as well for 1st Communion. And if your child was baptized in a different faith tradition and you want him/her to receive Holy Communion, please discuss with Sr. Stella.
Please register your child/children for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion no later than July 1, 2020.  This will allow us to better plan for and to communicate with you in a timely manner information about the parent meetings, classes and sacramental preparation.
To register your child/children click on this link,https://fs10.formsite.com/HRParishws/buzistaebl/index.html.
For those families whose Sacraments of Baptism, RCIA and First Communion were placed on hold due to COVID-19 we are looking forward to celebrating when we can do so in the future.
If you have any questions, please email Sr. Stella at srstella@holyrosaryseattle.org.
We are looking forward to working with your family in the upcoming school year 2020-2021.

RCIA For Children And Adults

Is Your Child Interested in Becoming Catholic and is Older than Age 7?
Holy Rosary Church welcomes all children no matter their age to a life with Christ. The Church prepares older children (age 7-18) and adults for all three sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Those children who have never been baptized will participate in the RCIA process adapted for children and celebrate their sacraments at the Easter Vigil.
RCIA is a special journey for children ages 7-18 along with their families to prepare for Initiation into the Catholic community. For more information or questions about RCIA for Children, please contact Sr. Stella.

USCCB On A Coronavirus Vaccine

The USCCB is encouraging everyone to advocate for an ethical vaccine for COVID-19. Bishops recently sent a letter to the FDA Commissioner expressing strong support to develop an effective, safe, and widely available vaccine that “ensure that fundamental moral principles are followed in the development of such vaccines, most importantly, the principle that human life is sacred and should never be exploited.” Read more here and encourage your parishioners to take action here.

Totus Tuus Is Cancelled

COMMUNITY NOTICES


Little Free Pantries

Our family has used some of this time amid the stay at home order, building Little Free Pantries. The idea, modeled somewhat on the Little Free Library concept, is simple: The pantries are filled by people in the community, and those in need are encouraged to come by and take what they can use. We’ve had one in our yard for years and it’s not only introduced us to neighbors to whom we may have never otherwise met but has helped many who are food insecure.  Food insecurity hits many in our neighborhoods, most of whom are housed and with the aftermath of COVID19, the numbers are quickly increasing.  These little boxes are not intended to replace the work of food banks but a way to support a neighbor or who may be in need of a meal. 
We have a few Little Free Pantries remaining which need a good home. They need sealing or painting before they are installed but do come with a mounting post.  If you need support installing we are happy to help here too.  If you’d like to place one in your yard please email me at mkharmon2@gmail.com. Thanks! Molly Harmon and Dave Wilton

Helping The Hungry In This Time Of Need

Catholic Community Services (CCS) has been hard at work, trying to care for many people experiencing homelessness who have no place to go. In particular, there is a great need at the day center they operate in Federal Way. They welcome up to 75 people a day, many who come for both lunch and dinner. CCS is reaching out to local parishes and schools for support. They would prefer donations of hot casseroles, although cold sandwiches are also appreciated. Meals can be brought on Tuesday mornings to St. James Cathedral, which will handle delivery. If interested, email/text/call Patrick Barredo (pbarredo@stjames-cathedral.org | 206-619-2879).
