Teaching God's Children Since 1743

Dedicated to helping children realize their tremendous potential, Saint Francis Academy provides high-quality Catholic education in a nurturing, supportive environment. Academic instruction, sacramental preparation, and spiritual formation combine to give students in pre-kindergarten to grade eight a well-rounded foundation for a life of learning and growing in God's love.

Dear Parents,
We have now begun the Lenten season. A time to make sacrifices for all the times we have failed to do our best. Some may "give something up", others may choose to pray more daily or be more charitable to their family or neighbors. No matter what our sacrifice, our Lord is so aware of those moments. Believe that! We live in a world today that keeps us "off balance" from what our true priorities should be and may cause us to doubt our faith. May our prayers help us to focus on the most important aspects of our lives. God bless you all for sacrificing and sending your children to Saint Francis Academy where they are constantly reminded to pray and love one another.
Deacon Thomas Murphy

The Importance of Sunday Mass

Our Duty and Privilege
http://www.loyolapress.com/sunday-connection.htm?class_id=14&parent_class_id=
Sunday Mass? Why is it so Important?
Since the Last Supper, Jesus instructed His apostles to “Do this in remembrance of Me”. The third commandment tells us to keep holy the Lord’s Day. The Mass is an intimate encounter with our risen Lord. In one of our Lady’s apparitions she stated that if we knew the graces that we receive from attending Holy Mass, “we would weep for joy”! How can we better understand the weekly readings? Please click on the link above for an explanation for all age groups!
• Then click on the “Sunday Connection” button on the left for the Sunday Readings and explanations.

School Closings & Delays
SFA
How do you know if the school is closed or dismissing early due to snow or icy conditions???
Parents can do any of the following:
1) Go to the school’s website at www.sfabally.org 2) Turn to (Ch. 69 TV) WFMZ
***The best thing to do is register your cell phone and/or email on the “Newsflash” button of our school’s website. This will notify you immediately by text message and/or email of any school situations***

Please note: We do not follow the Boyertown School District for closings and delays. If you reside in another school district, you must be aware of St. Francis Academy’s closing or delay schedule. For example, do not send your child to school if your district is operating on a one hour delay and St. Francis has a two hour delay. The school will not be open for any children arriving earlier than what has been announced.
Special Pre-K Note: If there is a two hour delay, the morning Pre-k class will still take place beginning at 10:30 for those who choose to attend.
