In Your Parishes
In Preparation for Catholic Schools Week we have some parish activities planned that we hope you will participate in this Sunday, January 22nd.

It is our goal to have the students demonstrate how proud they are of their catholic school community and share with our parish communities what their catholic education means to them. We'd like each parish to see the impact that MCS has on our students.  This school is a special place and we'd like to thank them for their continued support of MCS.

Some parishes will have students presenting essay's, host coffee and donuts, wear uniforms to church and more.  If you've not heard from your parish liaison coordinator, please reach out to them for more details.
