Let us run with endurance the race set before us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus
who is the author and finisher of our faith.
Hebrews 12: 1,2
April 29, 2022

FIRST COMMUNION - Many of the second graders are making their First Communion on Sunday. Please include them in your prayers.

MAY CROWNING PRAYER SERVICE - We will have a special prayer service on Wednesday to honor Our Mother Mary. We are looking for flowers for our prayer service. If you have flowers or want to purchase a few flowers, please have your children bring them to school on Wednesday, May 4th by 8:00 AM. The flowers will be a special part of our prayer service, and then they will be taken to the classrooms to be put by their statues of Mary. We honor and celebrate Mary during the month of May. It is a great month to pray the rosary and some of our other special prayers to Mary.

FIELD DAY - Field Day will be on Friday, May 20th. Mrs. Wavrin is looking for 14-15 parent volunteers for stations and team leaders. Please email the school office if you would like to help office@johnirelandschool.org.

Blessings to you!
