JUSTICE = SERVICE...

...especially with and for those who are poor and vulnerable.

OUR VETERANS: MODELS OF JUSTICE AND SERVICE

After Mass on Wednesday, we were blessed to have Mr. Ben Cardenas (photo above), a Veteran, speak to our school community about his military service, and that of others. It was a moving and powerful speech. May God Bless our Vets!

KICKING OFF BASKETBALL SEASON IN STYLE!

Many thanks to Student Council and Ms. Rachel Vargas-Trevino for planning and executing a GREAT Pep Rally. I missed it because I was at a retreat, but I heard it was excellent, partly because nobody was forced to watch me dance.
