Catholic Identity
Bishop John joined us for Mass today and what a wonderful celebration we had! Both Bishop John and Karen Rood, Director for Liturgy for the Diocese of Lexington mentioned how well our students participated in the Mass today.

Please keep our second grade students in your prayers as they prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation next week. We are a little nervous but ready to receive God's forgiveness, strength and healing to continue our journey as disciples.

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.
