Lastly, thank you for your donations to our January Mission Jean Day that the 4th grade collected money for to support the Assistance League of Southeast Michigan. This foundation has been around for almost 30 years and is a nonprofit, hands on, all member volunteer organization whose mission is to feed, clothe, educate and comfort children and adults through community based programs. The generosity of the Our Lady of Refuge community allows them to impact many more people in need! Our February Mission Jean Day will be sponsored by the 5th grade with the donations going to the Ronald McDonald House, another great charity to support.
Attention: Our Lady of Refuge Parish and School Weather Related Cancellations
Please be advised that in the future, if the school is closed due to weather conditions, the ENTIRE campus is closed. (The only exception is the morning Mass). This includes ALL school activities, sporting events, practices, open gym, etc. as well as any parish programs, meetings, prayer groups, etc.
The safety of our school families and our parishioners is our utmost concern.
