Social Fest Survey

Good news!!! The Social Fest team has started planning for an event this year. The expected date this year is the 4th Saturday in August or later. This is our major fundraiser for the school. School families, WE NEED YOUR HELP, in supporting this event, in supporting our school, and to offset key costs in running your school. To help with planning this year’s event, and those in the future, we are asking for input from all Parish members and school families, whether you attend Social Fest or not, regarding the event, your preferences, and your interests. You can complete the survey through this link, https://forms.gle/BJiFo4uxCZwRTYkY9 or from the link on the parish website. The web-site link is completely anonymous, and no registration or return e-mail address is required. We would sincerely appreciate your input, to make Social Fest the best possible event based on parish member and school family input.

A NOTE FROM Mrs. Longden

Moving from March to April has brought a sense of freshness and hope for the months to come. Just as the Resurrection brings us a path to follow in hope, the days of spring also lead us to a path of warmth and sunshine. The chugging along that took place in the winter months and the stillness of Lent seems to be changing to leaps of joy as we move forward in the Easter season. May our hearts be filled with the Resurrection celebration and the hope of all that is to come in our families, our school, our community, and in our world.

Pray Often, Work Hard, Trust God.

Blessings,

Mrs. Longden
