    Happy Mother's Day to our amazing Gonzaga moms! 

    Thank you for your support and commitment with so many events and committees throughout the year. 

    Thank you to the parents who attended Wednesday's Joint GMC/GFC meeting. 

    We enjoyed hearing the update on Gonzaga from Fr. Planning, and the highlight of the evening was the very gracious and faith-filled talk from Magda and Patrick Pettey.  They shared their very personal story of the tragic loss of their son, Dominik, how they dealt with their grief and worked towards forgiveness.  As they began their talk, Magda and Pat lead us in a prayer written by Msgr. John B. Brady after being inspired at the Mass of Christian Burial of Dominik Liam Pettey on November 8, 2014.  With permission, we share this prayer:
    Thank you to Valerie Jopeck, Morgean Hirt, Joanna Hoeffschneider, and Anne Ourand, our McKenna Service Chairs, and all of the amazing moms and sons who brought in a beautiful assortment of flowers on Friday.  One hundred vases (100) and bouquets were assembled and delivered to the residents and staff of the Unique Residential Care Center.  The beautiful flowers and visits with some of the Gonzaga Seniors brought many smiles on a rainy Friday. Leftover flowers were sold to students as a fundraiser for Campus Ministry. See more pictures on our Facebook page.

    Mentoring New Families in 2016-2017

    Remember when you were new to Gonzaga?  Perhaps with your first child in high school?  The simplest things can feel overwhelming!  
    Please consider guiding a few new moms through the process by offering to answer questions and provide information.  Often these questions are as simple as "What kind of shoes do the boys wear?" 
    All it takes to provide that support is one phone call during the summer, and another during the fall, to reach out and connect with a new mom.  You can answer any immediate questions, share some of our Gonzaga friendliness, and leave your contact information for future questions. It's so easy, yet makes such a big difference.  To volunteer to mentor 4 or 5 families, please CLICK HERE.
