Next Wednesday, Oct. 31 is the Diocesan Respect Life Mass. Bishop John will be here to celebrate with us, I hope that all our families can join us! We have several winners of the Respect Life Contest that will be recognized and on top of that, any student that attends will get an out of uniform pass for the next day! How exciting.

A reminder that we are collecting socks to give to the homeless as part of our Stewardship project for Respect Life Month. Please send them in and place them in the box in the rotunda. Thank you.

The Saints will come marching in on Nov. 1, All Saints Day, a holy day of Obligation. Because of this special feast day, we will be attending Mass on Friday, Nov. 1 instead of Wednesday.
Thank you for all your cooperation yesterday as we had to send emergency vehicles through our lot (at dismissal) to the parking lot beside our school. The drug related incident did not involve a school family but we did have school families parked close. Because of these types of situations unfortunately occurring in the park we are asking you to not drop your child off early in the morning at Southland Park and asking them to walk to school.
