554...

...that's how many students we have at The Atonement Academy, and they all returned from the Christmas break today.  It's so good to have them back!  Of course, there were a few things keeping me busy during the break...like all the holy days, the many and beautiful Masses, and the general round of parish life.  But having the students back -- that's my favourite time.  When they're on break, it's almost eerie to hear the class bells echoing down empty hallways, and I find myself heading towards the sacristy when I would usually be celebrating the students' Mass.  Breaks are nice, but I especially like them when they're over...
