All Souls Remembrance
We will remember and pray for our faithful departed during a school mass on November 11th at 8:45 AM. If your family has experienced a death in the past year, we would welcome the opportunity to pray for your loved one. Please complete the form at https://forms.gle/PkaD6JvZgGWWQqnQ7 and we will add your family member or loved one to our remembrance. The loved one does not need to have been Catholic.
We will read your loved one's name during an entrance procession and place a candle in our memorial display at the foot of the altar.
If you would like to send a picture of your family member to be included in the display, please email a digital copy to Janet Abdoulaye at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 30th. The pictures will not be returned.
Vaccination Clinic - Hendricks County Health Department
Students may be referred to Ms. Evans by teachers or the principal for a one-time visit. After that, parents must complete an consent form for continued visits. The consent form is available at the end of the Monday Memo or in the school office. You can reach Ms. Evans directly at email@example.com
The service hour tracking form can be found here and a copy will be sent home in the back-to-school packets. We ask that each family complete five service hours this school year. These hours can be completed during school or parish events.
