We begin our celebration of the Class of 2020...

While we cannot celebrate in the traditional way, we wanted to highlight what should have been at our last school Mass with 8th grade, followed by the traditional blessing of their tiles.

We look forward to the day that we can celebrate you and your accomplishments.

For the Class of 2020

To all of our parents, we were truly spoiled last week for Teacher Appreciation Week! Thank you!

A special shout out to Marie Holmes and our PTO committee for making Teacher Appreciation Week so special in this virtual world. We loved our gift card, our videos, personal notes, and YARD SIGNs!

PTO News!

Normally at our end of the year PTO General Meeting, we are able to share the good news about all that was accomplished during the school year. Unfortunately, we were not able to meet; however, we are looking to do ZOOM meeting in the next week or two. We will keep you posted on the details.

In the meantime, we are seeking officers for the 2020-21 school year! If you are interested in serving this committee, please contact We need YOU!

Happy Mother's Day!

The month of May is traditionally devoted to Mary -- and she holds a special place for Viatorians, especially on Mother's Day. Take 2 minutes and listen to Father Bill's Prayer for Our Lady and all mothers and Fr. Rinn's 5th Sunday of Easter Reflection & Mother's Day Blessing! Enjoy!

Podcast to check out...

If you are like me, I am watching, reading, and listening to things that make me feel good during this global pandemic. In that, I tend to be reverting back to those childhood movies (every Disney movie ever made) or classics.

My husband stumbled onto a podcast featured by NPR, called Julie's Library. I posted a link to the 8 minute interview and yes, she sings. If you like Julie Andrews, you'll love to hear her and her daughter reading their favorite childhood books. The podcast is called: Julie's Library. Enjoy!

Garden Farm Friends...

As you know, we moved our garden over from the Primary Campus to the Main Campus in early March. Already this month, Farmer Wendy has harvested spinach, bok choy, radishes and lettuce. She reports that the corn and potato plants are doing well, and last week she planted more seeds, including herbs, strawberries and flowers. The nutritious produce she has harvested is going to school families in need during this pandemic crisis.

We learned this week that our Garden Farm Friends deliver fresh fruit and veggies along with other items like sourdough bread and dark chocolate peanut butter! See Local line link below...

As nice as it would be to have Spielberg or Oprah at our graduation, we pray that we will be able to properly celebrate our 8th graders!

We have not made plans as we are waiting for clarification and clearance to plan an event larger than 10. Until we have a better idea when the church opens, we are waiting patiently. Our prayers are for late July.
