Wednesday, May 8
The Mass at 8:30 a.m. is an all school Mass. Board Members will have special participation. This is the first time that second graders will be receiving Communion with the rest of the School since their First Holy Communion.
A very special thank you to the following second grade teachers and music director, who helped with the First Holy Communion practices:
Donna Cooper, Mary Jean Cieniawa, Mary Daniel, Krys Tischer, Kim Banks and Dan McMahon. The First Holy Communion Masses were beautiful in every way despite our record snowfall on Saturday, April 27. It is only with the help of the teachers that this could be accomplished.
