Dear Parents, 

We would like to extend an invitation to all of our families to join us next Wednesday at 2:00 pm as the 7th grade students present the Living Stations of the Cross. This presentation is a beautiful remembrance of Jesus’s journey to his crucifixion. As we prepare to conclude Lent and welcome the Easter Season, we hope that this has been a time of spiritual growth for you and your children.
