St. Anne School Family Newsletter

May 19, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


This Saturday at 11:00 a.m. our second graders will be receiving their First Communion here at St. Anne Church. This is always such a special time for our students who will be receiving Jesus for the first time. I would bet that every one of us have vivid fond memories of our own First Communion. I would like to give special recognition to Mrs. Alioto for all the many hours of preparation and planning that she has put into getting our students prepared for this beautiful day. Please keep these children in your prayers and remember to thank God for all that He has given us.

We will be coming together to celebrate a special Baccalaureate Mass for our graduating 8th graders and their families on Thursday, May 27 at 11:00. We are excited to be able to offer our students and their families this opportunity to come together thanking God for all that He has given them and for us to be able to thank them for all they have done to continue to make our school the wonderful school it is!

PRAYERS...

Mrs. Barbara Ragusin, our wonderful fourth grade aide since 2007, will be having surgery on Monday, May 24. Please say a prayer for a successful surgery and her speedy recovery.
