Dear Parents,

This coming Tuesday over 600 of us will sit together as a family and have our traditional

Thanksgiving luncheon, just as many of you will on Thursday to enjoy the gift of each other! But before we eat, we will pause to offer thanksgiving for all the blessings we have received.

As president of Cardinal Ritter, I am thankful for so many things. First, I am thankful for the opportunity to serve in a role that brings students and staff closer to our Lord. Secondly, I am thankful for the presence of this Cardinal Ritter community. So many of you continue to give of your time, talent, and treasure. Next, I am thankful for the administration, teachers, and staff who continue to model our Catholic values for our students. Lastly, I am so grateful for the gift of our students. I am always awed at how they are witnesses of their faith.

Please know you and your family are in my prayers.

God Bless,

Mrs. Hoy

MCLT overall is a great club to experience and has an amazing group of members in it .The MCLT community are students who are getting closer to God and Christ. As my first year joining MCLT it's been a good experience for me. We get together about the plans we get

involved with, retreats, Mass, pro-life club and many more ! My favorite memory was when we had the MCLT retreat. We stayed there for 1 night and two days. It was really mind opening for me, and got to experience the life of what Christ has given us in this world. It's also great to adjust yourself from your old you to new you see growth and development into your relationship with Christ. So if you like helping out in Mass, reading psalms, and just talking about Christ, MCLT is the right place for you.
