Monthly News Notes for October – coming soon! Check back the first week of October!






































I love the month of May. It is the month where we can finally say that the long, cold winter is over and God’s promise of new life is showing it’s face all around us…flowers are blooming, the days are longer and summer is ahead!

This is the special month where we remember our second grade students who received the sacrament of Holy Eucharist for the very first time on Saturday, May 2. Their childlike innocence and excitement to receive Jesus is a lesson to all of us. Congratulations to Mrs. Doyle, Mrs. Hourihan and Mrs. Hammond who have prepared our children for this very special day.

May is the month when we set aside a special day to honor those wonderful women who gave each of us the gift of life – our mothers. To all mothers, grandmothers and special women in our lives, Happy Mother’s Day!

May is the month of Mary, the Mother of the Church. Please join us for our Ascension Thursday Liturgy at 9:30, followed by the Crowning of Mary.

Thank you for your support and partnership in Catholic education.

Peace, Sr. Patty
