Greetings,

I pray that Easter for all of you was a joyful time spent with family and friends. We are truly blessed because we know the Great Love of God. May we, as a St. Thomas the Apostle School community, continue to be people of faith, right relationships, peace and Easter joy. With the celebration of Easter, we can now be hopeful that Spring is here, bringing us the gift of new life.

Peace, Sr. Patty
