The school, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the
love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of
race, color or national and/or ethnic origin to all
rights, privileges, programs and activities generally
accorded or made available to students at the school.
The school does not discriminate on the basis of race,
color, disability, medical condition, sex or national
and/or ethnic origin in the administration of
educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship
and loan programs, and athletic and other schooladministered programs, although certain athletic
leagues and other programs may limit participation
and some archdiocesan schools operate as single sex
While the school does not discriminate against students
with special needs, a full range of services may not
always be available to them. Decisions concerning the
admission and continued enrollment of a student in the
school are based upon the student’s emotional,
academic and physical abilities and the resources
available to the school in meeting the student’s needs.

From the beginning of creation, God intended for people to live
together in relationship with one another. Much of scripture
shows us how to do this as it illustrates and clarifies God's plans.
The readings this weekend guide us in the value and care of our
relationships. Specifically, the Gospel focuses on the
circumstances of failed relationships. Unlike the Pharisees, we
would do well not to focus on the laws that pertain to failed
relationships, but concentrate instead on what God really
intended for us. Healthy bonds require a lot of our time and
energy. They certainly require trust and honesty. Jesus
demonstrated a deep commitment to his friends and to us. As our
by members of the
brother, he gave his very life for us. Children work hard at
Long Beach Chapter of the American Guild friendships. They trust, forgive, and love without conditions. The

Desde comienzos de la creación, Dios tenía planeado que los
seres humanos vivieran unidos llevándose bien unos con otros.
Gran parte de la Sagrada Escritura nos muestra cómo hacerlo, a
la vez que explica y clarifica el plan de Dios. Las lecturas este fin
de semana ofrecen una guía para valorar y cuidar de nuestras
relaciones humanas. Específicamente, el Evangelio se enfoca en
las circunstancias de una relación que ha fallado. A diferencia de
los fariseos, nos conviene no tanto enfatizar las leyes que se
aplican a relaciones que fallan, sino más bien, dar prioridad a lo
que en realidad Dios deseaba para nosotros. Los vínculos
saludables requieren de nosotros mucho tiempo y dedicación.
Ciertamente exigen confianza y honestidad. Jesús demostró un
profundo compromiso con sus amigos y para con nosotros. Como
un hermano, entregó hasta su vida por nosotros. Los niños se
ocupan mucho de sus amistades. Ellos confían, perdonan, aman
sin condiciones. Las palabras finales del Evangelio de hoy nos
invitan a recibir a Jesús y a aquellos con quienes nos
relacionamos, con el entusiasmo y la frescura de un niño.
