Thank you to everyone who donated to the Haiti birthing kit project. Because of your generous donations of time and items, we were able to package 101 kits. A very special thank you to those of you who spent so much time sewing shirts, blankets, towels etc. God bless you all!

St. Joe's Fine Arts Fest Tonight!

Our St. Joseph Campus presents their annual Fine Arts Festival from 6:00-7:00pm tonight. Doors open at 6:00 so you can view all of the artwork created by our students' creative little hands. Then, at 6:30, come to the gymnasium and take in the performances by our musical little artists.

For those who appreciate the culinary arts, there will be a bake sale during the Fine Arts Fest. All proceeds of this sale will go to support St. Joe's Campus Lenten Mission project--Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl.

'39 Steps' and '42nd Street' DVD Update

I have the '39 Steps' DVD ready to copy.

I have received the '42nd Street' DVD from Alex Marck (class of 2013) who graciously recorded this year's musical for us. Unfortunately, the 'mouths' and the 'sound' aren't matching up. So, I will be working with Alex to get this corrected (as fixing this issue is beyond my capabilities).

If you would like to pre-order a copy of either--or both--DVDs, please send a $10 donation per DVD to the Aquin Business Office. Please clearly mark the envelope with your name and phone number and indicate quantity and DVD preference. We will work as quickly as possible to fulfill your requests.

If you have any questions, please contact
