Thank you!

Thank you for helping support our first 'Annual' Middle School Thanksgiving Potluck! There were plenty of food to go around, thanks to all of the parents who contributed. We certainly had a lot to be thankful for.

Dinner starts at 5:30 in Parish Hall. At 7 PM - 8:30 PM, families can make decorations in classrooms. See you there!
