A Thanksgiving Prayer
Hands clasped around the table
Heads bowed silently in prayer
We've been allowed to share
Joyful for the laughter
Mindful of the tears
Every precious second
Treasured through the years.
How fortunate our hearts have been
How thankful now are we
For every single blessing
Bestowed to us from thee!
The entire staff of Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic School wishes

Pope Francis Will Attend the World Meeting of Families—Philadelphia 2015
The Vatican confirms the Holy Father’s visit to Philadelphia next year
Rome, Italy (November 17, 2014)
Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.,
Archbishop Chaput said, “ I am overjoyed by Pope Francis’ announcement that he will join with us for the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia next year. A hallmark of his papacy has been a keen focus on the many challenges that families face today globally. His charisma, presence and voice will electrify the gathering.”
“As I’ve said many times before, I believe that the presence of the Holy Father will bring all of us – Catholic and non-Catholic alike – together in tremendously powerful, unifying and healing ways.
We look forward to Pope Francis’ arrival in Philadelphia next September and we will welcome him joyfully with open arms and prayerful hearts.”
Detailed plans for Pope Francis’ visit have not yet been finalized and are expected to be released in spring or summer of 2015. However, it is expected that the Holy Father will visit Philadelphia September 25 – 27, 2015 to participate in the closing events of the Eighth World Meeting of Families. These events include the Festival of Families, an intercultural celebration of family life around the world, which would be held on Saturday, September 26, and a Papal Mass to be held on Sunday, September 27. Both of these events will take place on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in the heart of Philadelphia and will be open to the public.
The World Meeting of Families is a triennial global event that seeks to strengthen the sacred bonds of family across the globe and highlight its intrinsic value to the good of society. Being held in the United States for the first time ever, the official theme for the 2015 World Meeting of Families is “Love is our mission: the family fully alive.”
