CALENDAR CHANGES IN FEBRUARY
To celebrate Catholic Schools Week, Bishop Foys granted all schools a day off. We will have a four day weekend from February 16 - February 19 (President's Day Weekend).
ASK YOUR SON...
Today the Covington Catholic students attended a presentation on "Creating Catholic Digital Citizens." Paul Sanfrancesco is a national technology consultant for the William H. Sadler Publishing Company. He has 20 years experience in Catholic, Private, and public education in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. His presentation included interaction with the student body while going through the different apps that people use in social media. He explained that anything posted on social media, no matter which app you are using, never disappears. He gave examples of legal ramifications that students and parents can face when something inappropriate is posted. Ask your son tonight what he learned today on how to be a good "digital citizen."
ATTENTION FISHING COLONELS
On Tuesday February 13th there will be a student sign up/ meeting being held in room 213 at 7:15am. This is a mandatory meeting if you are planning on participating. At this meeting we will discuss a few important items as we get closer to the season.

Bible Study Announcement
Faith Formation Catholic Bible Study classes for adults and young adults – All sessions are scheduled on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m., beginning March 6, 2018. Each workshop will take three evenings and will cover one book of the Bible. The study will begin with the Book of Numbers and, with enough interest, continue through the Book of Revelation. Our guest presenter is the Reverend Timothy P. Schehr, Ph.D., from the Athenaeum of Ohio, Mt. St. Mary Seminary of the West.
The Bible is a great and wonderful book which we should all read and study. We should make an effort to understand the true meaning of the Scriptures, and not simply give passages our own interpretation.
To avoid this, I personally invite you to come on Tuesday, March 6 to experience Father Schehr’s teaching. During these workshops Father will guide us through the meaning of the Bible. Through his teaching the Bible will be a source of unity in the Church, rather than the division that follows when we interpret Scripture contrary to the Church’s teaching.
The cost to participate in each book of the Bible is $35. All sessions will be held in the Bishop Howard Memorial Auditorium, located in the Diocese of Covington Curia, 1125 Madison Ave., Covington. To register online, or for more information, please visit the diocesan website at
https://www.covdio.org/scripture-study-for-young-adults-and-adult-faith-formation/, or email registration to email@example.com, or call 859-392-1500 ext. 1526. A brochure listing the first ten courses is available on the above website.
