Our last day of class for the RE students was this past Wednesday, May 1st. Thank you to all the volunteer Catechists. Without your dedication and hard work we would not be able to provide the wonderful RE program that we have. Thank you to all parents/grandparents who have made this a priority in the lives of their loved ones. And thank you to the students for your dedication and eagerness to learn and be faithful. May you have a safe and blessed summer vacation.
