St. Vincent de Paul Parish School
It is hard to believe we are in the 4th quarter already! One more quarter to give our learners your best. I am sure by now, you have heard of the appointment of our new pastor, Fr. Norm Douglas. He stopped in this morning, absolutely eager to be here. He said "I feel like I've hit the lottery coming here!" I am sure you will see him throughout the next few days, and become affected by his personality, his charisma, and his message. He will certainly be loved here.
Kids at heart in Catholic education,
