Confirmation on Thursday was just beautiful! Congratulations to all the newly confirmed! Please keep them in your prayers.
Congratulations to all our 2nd graders who received First Eucharist! Please keep them in your prayers as well!
Our staff enjoyed our retreat on Friday at the Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche. We had a beautiful, spiritual day together!
I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!
