      BISHOP LIBASCI DECLARES HOLY FAMILY ACADEMY A CATHOLIC SCHOOL

      The Feast of St. Joseph - March 19, 2014:  Fr. Jason Jalbert, Fr. John Fortin, Superintendent of Catholic Schools, and Fr. Robert Smolley concelebrated Holy Mass with Bishop Libasci in our chapel. The Board of Trustees, the faculty and students were present to celebrate with our Bishop on this day, the Feast of St. Joseph, our Patron Saint. Following the celebration of Holy Mass, Fr. John Fortin presented the official framed Catholic School Recognition Certificate to the Board, followed by congratulations by the Bishop. Everyone heard Bishop Libasci affirm our school, as a wonderful Catholic school where the Catholic faith is taught, treasured, and lived.  And today, thanks be to God, Jesus is now perpetually reposed in our tabernacle! We are so blessed to have the precious Body and Blood of Jesus here at HFA – Jesus, our hearts' desire!  Praise God for His faithfulness to us!

      On Friday, May 30th, the Annual Senior Banquet was held at Candia Woods Country Club.  Per tradition, the juniors, Class of 2015, were the hosts for this special evening.  Every year the juniors do a great job of making the seniors feel welcome.  This year's junior class raised the bar with an incredibly thoughtful array of personal and special touches.  Lots of picture taking, hugs, smiles, excellent food and heartfelt affirmations by the parents of their children all contributed to make this event truly exceptional.   



      Holy Family Academy 

      Welcomes you to
      the Senior Thesis Presentations
       
      Given by the members of the Class of 2014 
       May 9 & 10, 2014

       
      Each student will deliver a thesis establishing and then responding to his or her chosen question. Each student will raise and offer a reply to the central objections against the position taken in the thesis. After each presentation, time has been allotted for the audience to pose further questions concerning the thesis. The Senior Thesis Presentation represents the culmination of a student’s education at Holy Family Academy, the goal of which is the formation of a Catholic, liberally educated lady or gentleman. When presenting a thesis, each student demonstrates both the ability to search for the truth in a logical manner and the ability to present and defend a position publicly. Each presenter must deliver a thesis according to the Classical Scholastic Thesis Form. This is the form used and perfected by St. Thomas Aquinas. The Scholastic Thesis Form is as follows: 

      1) State the question.
      2) Pose two or more strong objections against the proposed answer.
      3) “On the contrary” — Appeal to a recognized authority in support of the proposed answer.
      4) Give a well developed, logical argument in support of the proposed answer.
      5) Present answers to the proposed objections.
       
      After the written thesis is presented, a spirited discussion follows, in which the student will respond ex tempore to questions from the audience concerning his or her topic.




      On Wednesday, May 7, Mrs. Mary Mosher, Founder & Executive Director, welcomed the Class of 2015 and their parents to the 2nd Annual Blessing of Class Rings. Departing senior, Jean-Pierre Tetreault, gave an exhortation to the rising seniors about their need to become the big brothers/big sisters and role models to the underclassmen. Fr. Marc Montminy, Founder & Spiritual Director, blessed the rings.  Mrs. Lucille Fortin, Founder & Administrator, presented each student with their ring after which each individual student received a blessing from Fr. Marc. It was a special event followed by fellowship in St. Cecilia Hall.

      Senior Play - "The Man Who Came to Dinner", April 4 & 5:  This delightful play, written by Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman, was presented on Friday, April 4th and Saturday, April 5th. The students gave spectacular performances under the able direction of Mrs. Emily McDonald, assisted by Mrs. Anne Perrella. The culmination of weeks of hard work learning lines, building the stage setting, immersing themselves into their characters and practicing every little nuance all came together beautifully.  The audience thoroughly enjoyed the results of the hard labors of the cast and crew.  For your enjoyment a more complete photo album of the play is posted on the right side of this page.

       

      Congratulations are in order!

      Carole Beauchemin was the fortunate winner of this beautiful, hand-crafted, tandem kayak.  I am sure the Beauchemin family will enjoy many hours in this striking craft.  Our thanks to Ed & Ginny Brodeur for their generosity in donating this kayak.
