A Prayer for Catholic Education

Father, Thank you for all those men and women who have given their talents to educating our young people. Through the challenges, they encounter each day, lead them to an ever deeper appreciation of the sacred duty to which you have called them. We give thanks for the invaluable work of all those who contribute to the efficient running of our schools. We thank them for their hard work and dedication and we pray that they may continue to work in support of our schools. Thank you for all those who lead our Catholic schools. May they be people of integrity so that they can be witnesses as well as teachers. We pray that the schools they lead will become places where our young people can experience your love in their lives. Thank you for our Catholic schools. Help us to pray without ceasing, to work without wavering in order to ensure the future of Catholic education for all of our children. We make this prayer through your Son, Jesus Christ, our teacher and our Lord

Get Excited!

Our bake sale is quickly approaching, we need all the support we can get!

November 7 & November 8 during Parent-Teacher interviews.

We are asking for families if possible, to participate by either baking something or buying something and donating it to the sale. Please keep all baking "nut free". Also, if it is possible to add the ingredients and the name of your goodies.

We will be needing volunteers for both of these days to make it a success. If you can volunteer your time to assist with the selling of the items, please go to and enter code 2fmdq by November 6th.

All baking can be dropped off at the school in the morning of the bake sale or the afternoon before.
