DAY OF THE DEAD
During the weeks of October 18th to November 8th, we invite all families to send pictures of their loved ones who have passed away to school (in frames please and 'Return to' names on back).

These pictures will be placed on a special Altar of Memories and we will pray for your deceased loved ones throughout these weeks as we get closer to All Souls and All Saints Day.
