Kindness

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Colossians 3:12

As part of our Rice Bowl program, each week we focus on a community or resource that our Rice Bowl monies will support. We bring up our Rice Bowl offerings in Mass. This week we are studying Guatemala. In Guatemala, we encounter Norma, who as a young mother, supports her family and shares her skills with her community. Reflect on the importance of family in your life. How can you contribute to support families in your community? Visit crsricebowl.org for more.


Each Friday during Lent, there is a 2:00 Mass. Fr. Dan promises that it will be held to a 30 minute Mass. If you would like to check your child out of school to join you for Mass, you may without academic penalty. Go ahead and park in the dismissal line and leave your QR code in the driver side dashboard and we will scan you in for dismissal. Fridays also include our parish Fish Fries from 5 - 7 followed by Stations of the Cross at 6:30 in church. Lenten Fridays are Fantastic!

Scholarship Endowment Fund
It is our honor to announce the formation of the Linda Rukavina Scholarship - designated to help make the Kindergarten experience at Mary Queen School more attainable. Teachers touch our lives in the most profound ways. Mary Queen was blessed to have one such teacher, Linda Rukavina, from 1995-2015. Mrs. Rukavina made an impact on many as a teacher of Kindergarten aged students. Her patience, care and ability to connect with the young student made her a true gem. Mrs. Rukavina loved the children and teaching at Mary Queen School. Please - help us join together to honor Mrs. Rukavina by helping make the Kindergarten experience more attainable for others.
