Weekly Update -- October 6, 2017

Dear Parents,

The animals invaded the field on Wednesday evening for the annual blessing of the pets. One of the nice things about being a parish school is that when you take part in a parish event you see so many of your school friends there. As a school we are blessed to be a part of such an active and alive parish - they aren't all like this one.

When you have a chance take a moment to thank Father Tim and Father Kevin for all they do not just for the parish but for the school. Letting them know how much we appreciate them is so important.

Have a blessed weekend!

Father Steve Ryan is the director of Mary Help of Christians in Tampa. He publishes a weekly newsletter that is a quick read that makes you think!! Check it out.
