This week, our 3rd-8th grades will be attending Reconciliation with Father McEnhill, make sure to ask them about the experience. We also kicked off the beginning of the new Liturgical year with Mrs. Degan, our Director of Religious Education, lighting the first candle of our Advent wreath this morning.
Remember, there is a Dads’ Club meeting on 12/4 at 7 PM in the Social Hall, and this Thursday will be our K-5 Christmas performances in the Performing Arts Center, make sure to check with your child regarding details for their specific time.
Have a wonderful week!
