Cathedral Chapel School Home
On January 15, 2020 Father Truc will have been a Catholic priest for 20 years. The parish celebrated the milestone with a beautiful Mass and reception on Sunday the 12th. Father's parents and family (He is one of 10 siblings.) came to celebrate the big day and wore traditional Vietnamese clothing in honor of the anniversary. The Mass included prayers in English, Latin, and Vietnamese. The choir outdid themselves with beautiful songs and harmonies. Congratulations, Father Truc, and thank you for all you do for our school and parish.
Christmas is a time for giving, and that is just what the Chapel family is doing once again. The fourth graders collected blankets for the homeless and donated them to Sisters Poor of Jesus Christ. Once the word spread, students from other classes joined the fourth graders and added their gifts at the Offetory during our Mass celebrating Our Lady of Guadalupe. Students have also brought in toys for children at Alexandria House. Each class was assigned an item to give to those in need. Parents helped deliver them to the different charitable organizations. Thank you to all for participating in our holiday drives. May God bless us all and keep our families safe during the Christmas break.
First and eighth grade students and their families participated in a beautiful Thanksgiving Mass on Sunday, November 24, 2019. The Class of 2020 wrote prayers of gratitude, and the Class of 2027 created amazing posters celebrating the season. Father Truc brought the eighth grades up to the altar during the Mass to make the experience more personal for them. Chapel's choir reminded us all how beautiful music can increase the depth of the spiritual experience of the Mass. Thank you to all who made the celebration so meaningful and joyous. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Seventh grader Matthew Gomez won the October 2019 Action Magazine writing contest, "What Would You do?" Scholastic Magazines are read throughout the world, and it is an incredible honor for one to be picked by its editors and writers as a winner. Cathedral Chapel is proud to have one of our students celebrated in this way. Thank you Matthew for your effort and creativity.
Anabel Manriquez and Katherine Sanchez teamed up to write and then perform their TV newscaster script for the judges at the December speech league tournament. Chapel students participated in several other categories as well: dramatic, humorous, improvisation duals, and expository demonstration. We are so proud of our students and amazed at the improvement they've shown this year.
