School Spotlight – November 6th

It has been an exciting week at Refuge! Congratulations to everyone contributing to the record breaking “Raven Race”. We have met many goals and truly set the bar for future years!

Our school is very blessed to have teachers recognized during the AOD annual Prep Bowl at Ford Field. Congratulations to Ms. Ingweiller/Kindergarten teacher (5 yrs.), Mrs. Brossia/Kindergarten teacher (10 yrs.), Mrs. Mulvany/Instructional Specialist (15 yrs.) and Mrs. Ferguson/Middle School Reading teach (25 yrs.) for your service and dedication to Catholic Education with the Archdiocese of Detroit.

Continuing with honors, we are so proud of our Varsity Football team playing an exhibition game at Ford Field and scoring a touchdown in the 20 minute block. Our Volleyball team will be competing in the CYO Championship game this coming week and we are gearing up for a win!

October is the month of the Rosary and as we wrap up this month, our School gathered as one to pray a ‘living Rosary’ together in the church. We are truly blessed and better together.

A Beautiful Catholic Schools Week 2022 Celebration!

Our Lady of Refuge was represented at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit for the rescheduled Catholic Schools Week Mass.

We had students from grades 3 through 8 attend and experience this beautiful event honoring the Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit. We even had our very own 4th grader, Mariam Assad, read one of the Prayers of the Faithful.

This was a memorable experience and we are grateful to have been able to attend!

Student Day of Service 2022

April 12, 2022

Our students truly did the work of God today by touching the lives of so many. We started our morning with making bookmarks to donate to Humble Design along with our books from our book drive back in March. We handmade dog treats and cat toys to donate to D.A.W.G. – Detroit Animal Welfare Group and their animals in need. In the afternoon we put together hero bags to donate to over five local police departments. Then we ended our day in the church learning how Our Lady of Refuge serves the community and prayed together as a whole school. 

It was a truly beautiful experience to share with one another as we continue our journey through the Easter season. Please enjoy some highlights from our day. Praying for a safe and blessed spring break to all!
