Great Job to Student Council for hosting the first dance of the year! Students collected non-perishable items to help the parish pantry. Thank you to Mr. Tijerina for serving as the DJ, Shannon's Pawn for donating the four inflatable decorations, and all the parents and teachers for chaperoning and helping set up with personal decorations. What a fun evening!

Even in midst of OSU homecoming tragedy, Fort Worth firefighter felt God's presence
Fort Worth Fire Lieutenant David Tompkins will never forget the tragic events of Oct. 24, 2015, a day when his skills as a firefighter/emergency medical technician saved lives, and a day when he felt the presence of God all around him.
Please keep all our school families in your prayers as we continue to work through the challenges our Lord places before us.
Continue to pray for our Bishop, priests, administrators, educators, and parents as we continue to guide these young disciples closer to Christ.
