Lent Season

The month of March brings Ash Wednesday and the Liturgical Season of Lent. As we journey through the forty days of Lent, we are called to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Lent is a time to reflect on our lives and grow in our relationship with Jesus. By "fasting" from the many distractions of our lives and spending more time in prayer, we can strengthen our faith and prepare for the glorious celebration of Easter. 
   The virtue of the month is "temperance". Temperance is the opposite of indulgence. During the holy season of Lent, we are called to "temper" our desires and material wants and needs in order to focus more fully on spiritual matters.

               All About Mrs. O'Loughlin____________

  As a graduate of St. Agnes Cathedral High School, I was happy and excited to resume my teaching career nine years ago here at St. Agnes. After obtaining my Bachelors Degree  from St. John's University, I began teaching (as Miss O'Connell), first at St. Joseph's in Holbrook, Massachusetts, and then at  St. Joseph's in Hewlett, New York. While teaching, I also worked a summer job at Aer Lingus (the Irish Airline).  This resulted in a move to Dublin when I got married and my three children were all born in Ireland. I was a "stay-at-home-Mom" until our return to the United States. I then embarked upon  earning a  Masters of Education at St. John's and accepted a position to teach fifth grade Math and Religion.
This is my eleventh year as a member of the dedicated faculty here at St. Agnes Cathedral School.
