Catholic schools around the country will celebrate National Catholic Schools Week January 29th – February 4th.  This year’s theme is Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service.  Holy Trinity School truly embodies the tradition of Catholic education and has week-long activities and celebrations planned for its students, faculty, staff, and community.

Holy Trinity School will kick-off its week-long celebrations by participating in Mass at St Helen’s at 9:30 a.m., Our Lady of Lourdes in Mountainside at 9:30 a.m., or the Catholic Church of the Holy Trinity in Westfield at 12:00 p.m.  Following Mass, Holy Trinity School invites all those interested in learning more about Catholic education to its open houses.  The Early Education Center (age 2 through full-day Kindergarten) located at 304 Central Avenue in Mountainside will host an Open House from 10:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and the Westfield campus (full-day Kindergarten through 8th grade) located at 336 First Street, will offer an Open House from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  The Westfield campus also will be showing the movie Zootopia starting at 1:15 p.m. for those attending the Open House.  All are invited to attend. Tours of the school will be available for parents during the film, and the faculty will be attendance to answer any questions.

Throughout Catholic Schools Week, students and faculty will be participating in a number of activities that include prayer and reflection through retreat activities, service activities that will benefit those within Westfield and the surrounding communities, appreciation for its dedicated faculty/staff, and fun activities for its students such as an ice cream social, Olympic-style games, and spirit day.  On Friday, February 3rd, both campuses have events that invite friends and families to experience Holy Trinity School.  The Early Education Center in Mountainside will welcome grandparents/special people to spend the day in the classroom with their students.  Students from the Westfield campus will share their talents with family and friends through the school’s annual student talent show at 7:00 p.m. in the school gym.

You Meet the Most Amazing People on the Trail

The weather cooperated this weekend, so I went for more than one hike. After all, there are only just over fifty days before my walk to Maine commences, so why not.

This Saturday, some friends dragged me away from housecleaning (thank you!) for a quick jaunt through Watchung Reservation.  While we were there, we ran into two individuals from Westfield; the cosplayers introduced themselves ...

Empleando Nuestra Juventud 

Querido Plainfield, 

Todos esperan el verano; los días son más calientes y largos, y la madre tierra se pone su mejor vestido mientras las frutas se maduran en el sol y las flores ondean un alegre "hola". La gente comienzan los paseos de la playa o piscina, y las juntas de barbacoa en los patios son necesarios en los fines de semanas.

Aquí en la ciudad de ...

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn (William Morrow, 2018)

 

A friend, whose opinion on literature I respect greatly, reported to me recently that she had just finished reading A.J. Finn's debut novel, The Woman in the Window. Of it she said, “I wish I hadn't finished it,” which I interpreted to mean, “It was so good I'm sorry that I finished it.” ...

When the Men Go Off to War by Victoria Kelly

When the Men Go Off to War by Victoria Kelly (Naval Institute Press, 2015)

Victoria Kelly's first published volume of poetry, When the Men Go Off to War, is a wonder in that poems can be written so beautifully about the subject of war. Each poem is a jewel, polished and colorful, glittering with elegant imagery, and rich in emotional wallop. The book, divided into three sections, ...

            The Queen of the Big Time by Adriana Trigiani, a New York Times best selling author, was recommended to me by a young woman who actually came from the town of Roseto, Pennsylvania, the place where the novel is set. “The author did such a wonderful job of describing how the town actually is,” said the young lady.

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah (St. Martin's Press, 2018)

            What is the “final frontier” on the Earth's surface? Many people would say Alaska, the 49th state, which was added to the United States fifty years ago. Once one has traveled to that remote land, it is impossible to forget the magnificence of the terrain and beasts. Floating by ship in Glacier Bay, surrounded by ...

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins (Riverhead Books, 2017)

 

I wanted to like Into the Water by Paula Hawkins because I had enjoyed her previous novel, The Girl on the Train, which was a suspenseful thriller. However, when I finished reading the first part of the Into the Water, I realized that I had not absorbed anything that was happening in the story. I blamed myself for not paying ...
