HOW TO MAKE USE OF THE SPIRITUALITY CENTER?
Contact Sister Rosemarie Goins, a Felician Franciscan, who is the Spiritual Director of St. Augustine Spirituality Center by means of the following:
- Students may contact the director who, in turn, arranges with the teachers to release them from class.
- Administrators, teachers or parents may refer students to the director by using the in house number for the center—1027. A note may also be left in Faculty Room mail box of the director. E-mail OK, too.
- The director is normally in the center on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Periods 4, 5 and 6. Others times can be arranged if the need arises.
TO MAINTAIN A JOYFUL FAMILY REQUIRES MUCH FROM BOTH THE PARENTS AND THE CHILDREN. EACH MEMBER OF THE FAMILY HAS TO BECOME, IN A SPECIAL WAY, THE SERVANT OF THE OTHERS.
