ENRICHING THE SPIRIT
Easter Vigil Mass was the beginning of a very blessed time for our Sandusky Central Catholic School students. Several of our students were welcomed into the Catholic Church at Mass that evening. Anna Blevins, 11th grade, received all three Sacraments of Initiation at Sts. Peter and Paul Church and Rachel Grimm, 4th grade, Jackson Grimm, 2nd grade, and Elliot Grimm, kindergarten, received the Sacrament of Baptism at St. Mary's Church.  Rachel and Jackson will be receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on May 7 with the 2nd grade students of SCCS. Also, Matthew and Dominic Blakely and Noah Michel, all 2nd grade students, were baptized this past weekend at St. Mary's Church, and will receive their First Holy Communion on May 7. This Saturday, April 29, SCCS 8th grade students will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation, where they are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and are strengthened in their relationship with Christ. Please keep our students in your prayers during this special and blessed time.
