We loved having the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters visit today to help us learn more about vocations.
The IHM Sisters joined us for Stations of the Cross today.
Thank you to the fifth grade for leading!

Families are encouraged to make some kind of sacrifice or commitment during lent. One suggestion is to attend mass as a family every weekend - or attend together at your own church. Giving up something or adding more prayer, scripture reading, etc. is also a good idea. We pray that each family can grow in their faith during the coming lenten season. Parents are also welcome to join our lenten study group on Wednesday evenings in the school gym, 5:00 - 6:00. You are also welcome to join us for Stations of the Cross on Fridays that we have school at 12:05.
We are making a change to the end of the school year calendar. Our last day will be Friday, May 19 for all grades. Preschoolers will have programs in the morning. A family picnic lunch will begin at 11:30 with the fifth grade vs. parent kickball game following. We will close our school year with mass at 2:00.
We will have mass next week on Tuesday and Wednesday at 2:00 p.m., and Stations of the Cross on Friday at 12:05 p.m. Please join us if you can. Mass collections in March go to the Bishop's Annual Appeal. Students are encouraged to bring money for mass collections, even if just a coin or two. THANK YOU for teaching your child about the importance of stewardship and helping others.
