“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the stalwart one who takes refuge in him." Psalms 34:9
Message From The President
Dear Parents,

What an amazing week we had at Cardinal Ritter. Our 8th graders graduated on Wednesday our Baccalaureate on Thursday and graduation on Friday.

In my speech to the seniors I thanked them for their resiliency and perseverance during this unsettling and unpredictable year. The same thanks however, needs to go out to all our students and teachers who faced the same challenges with resolve. And with the grace of God we finished the year in person.

Thank you parents for all the support and understanding you have given us. We could not have done it without you.

Next week we will say goodbye to a few teachers and begin to welcome new ones.
We are looking forward for the summer so that we can begin to start preparing for next fall.

Next fall we will again ask parents to commit to doing volunteer hours. I am asking you to consider nominating someone who you feel will be a strong representative for the Parent Club. So please send me names. Maybe yours? Let’s start planning together.

Thank you for all your prayers and support

God bless
Mrs. Hoy

Prayer for Students

Lord our God,
in your wisdom and love
you surround us with the mysteries of the universe.
Send your Spirit upon these students
and fill them with your wisdom and blessings.
Grant that they may
devote themselves to their studies
and draw ever closer to you,
the source of all knowledge. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R/. Amen.
