What Does It Mean to Be a Parishioner?

As we near the end of 2018, all Immaculate Conception Cathedral families are reminded of what qualifies parishioners to receive subsidized tuition rates. The Cathedral parish has set the following criteria: to be officially registered with the Cathedral, to worship regularly by attending Mass and participating in parish functions and activities, and to offer financial support by contributing regularly. Families should check with the Cathedral office if they are unsure of their status. For more information, call the Cathedral office at (337) 436-7251.

CLASSROOM NEWS

4th Grade Service Project

Our 4th grade students worked hard on their Box of Joy service project. The students packed boxes with Christmas treats and essentials for boys and girls in different countries around the world. They also wrote letters to the children.

Our 4th graders and faculty will keep these special Box of Joy recipients in our thoughts and prayers this holiday season.

5th Grade Science

Science is FUN! Mrs. Anita Falcon's 5th grade science students recently observed how water "climbs" up filter paper. They then used chromatography to test food dye.

We Wish All Our Families a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving! Classes will resume on Monday, November 26.
