Catholic Schools Week
This year, Catholic Schools Week is January 31-February 6.   In the past we would have students participate in the different parts of Mass and write cards/letters for parishioners, to put in the bulletin.  Due to the current environment, it has been decided to share videos featuring our beloved teachers and students.   Beginning Monday, these videos can be found on the parish YouTube channel under the Catholic Schools Week playlist.  A new video will be made available daily so be sure to check back regularly.
