Principal's Update for October 1

Dear Mercy School Family,

Can you believe it’s October already! Time is moving quickly! We often get so busy that we lose track of time, but the good news is that we have settled nicely into this school year. I will share my reflections with you monthly to keep you updated on what we have accomplished and what we will be looking forward to throughout the year. 

This year has brought many new upgrades and expansions to our school: a new building, new carpool lines, new bus drop locations, new faculty, over 150 new families, etc. Students, faculty, and staff have adjusted to our new campus additions, and things are running smoothly. 

My reflection of all the progress on campus lends itself to the belief that Jesus Christ is the reason that our school exists. We are called to come together to teach our youth in the ways of Christ! Let us all continue to support one another in uplifting the next generation of saints in our community. 

Day to day routines and upcoming holidays can often make us feel overwhelmed and weary, but as Jesus teaches us in Matthew’s Gospel, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” As we continue on this journey together, let us find peace and comfort in Christ. 

October is the Month of the Holy Rosary, so I ask that you and your families carve out some time each week to pray the rosary together. Let us ask our patroness, “Our Lady of Mercy”, to intercede for us in our prayers for a deeper relationship with her Son, Jesus Christ. 

Please know that I will continue to keep all of you in my prayers, and thank you for choosing to partner with us at Mercy. It is a great honor to serve as your principal, and I will work to maintain the faith, education, and community that is Our Lady of Mercy.


God bless,

Chris Porche
