ST. MARY’S SCHOOL TUITION FREEZE
Father David announced that tuition rates for the 2009-2010
school year at St. Mary’s School
remain the same as it is for the 2008-2009 school year, and some of the
school fees have been reduced. Father David’s decision was based on the
increasing economic pressure on families:
tuition is often a sacrifice for our families, but it should not be an
unmanageable burden. We have always tried to secure tuition
assistance for families in need. This year, we are holding our tuition
rates to benefit all of our school families.”

What’s the one of the big things that has preoccupied you since you were a child and throughout all of the years that have followed? Isn’t it fear of rejection? Recall your early days as a child. Even as a tiny baby you screamed, shrieked, and cried if you were not held, cuddled, and loved by your mother and your father. As a child you craved to play with playmates and you were miserable if they didn’t want to play with you. And when you were a teenager? Well, words can’t begin to describe the pain and fear teenager experiences when faced with rejection.
