Supporting Our Lady's Inn:
Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent fundraiser with The Malt Shop. Through your generosity, Student Council raised almost $400.00! They took this money to Walmart to purchase items need by those served through Our Lady's Inn. Their purchases included paper products, canned food, and a variety of baby/toddler clothes. They then delivered their purchases to the main office for this wonderful Pro-Life organization. Special thanks to Mr. Smyka and Mrs. Gianino for helping with the shopping and delivery trip. Thanks also to Student Council for organizing this event and to all of you for your thoughtful generosity.
Father Maassen's Birthday:
On Tuesday, April 2, the children celebrated Father Maassen's birthday. Each of them colored a birthday cake and wrote him a message on the back. We then took our birthday cakes and decorated the Parish Office. We also included Father Maassen in our prayers that day and asked God to give him special blessings.
