SFA Vignette Series: Deacon Michael Fitzpatrick - A Lasting Impact!

SFA alumnus and seminarian, Dcn. Michael Fitzpatrick, emphasizes that faith is first taught in the family and then reinforced and supported at the school. He shares his thoughts on parents and family members as role models and how the daily focus on prayer, peace, and perseverance during his time at St. Francis had a long term impact on him. “The fact that the motto of the school is Prayer, Peace, and Perseverance, and talking about prayer, talking about virtues having that taught to us students every day, day in and day out...that’s the kind of stuff that stays with you.”

The Britfield Creativity & Writing Virtual Tour - March 16

Do you remember last year, back when things were normal, and the Britfield author, C.R.Stewart came to SFA? He was a huge hit and so was his book.
We heard that Stewart had published another book, so we reached out to him to see if we could have him visit again.

As with all things during a pandemic, we can't meet him in person, but he does do virtual visits, and we have arranged for him to speak to the 4th-8th grade students on Tuesday, March 16th. Mr. Stewart will zoom with just St. Francis students to tell us all about his 2 new books: Britfield & The Lost Crown and Britfield & The Rise of the Lion, Book II. As it turns out, his first book was so popular and well-received that it is in the process of being made into a movie!

Since we can't go on field trips, we thought this would be a fun activity for our SFA 4th-8th grade students, and it comes right on the heels of our Read-a-Thon and Read Across America Week.

Attached is a flyer with information on ordering books from the author. The order will stay open for 1 week following the presentation, and books will be shipped directly to the school for distribution.
