Free T-Shirts! We Need To Know Sizes
Tell us your children(s) sizes by March 3!
During Catholic Schools Week, the children were asked to submit ideas for a school wide t-shirt. We had many wonderful ideas turned in. The winning slogan is "LEARN, PRAY, TRUST, OLMC" submitted by Chika Ohale & Katie Wendt. Every child (K-8) will be receiving a free t-shirt with the slogan to wear one day the week before ILearn testing starts. ILearn testing starts April 20 for grades 3-8. Please provide a shirt size for each of your children (K-8) child below. If you have more than one child, please complete this form for each child.

Please keep Scrip in mind with Easter & Spring Break fast approaching.

The life of a disciple has three stages that
are continuously being renewed. We need
to ENCOUNTER Jesus everyday. We
EQUIP ourselves as we grow in the faith.
We ENGAGE the world around us by
sharing the love of God. Each night of our
missio n we’ll explore how we can move
through these stages and become engaged disciples of Jesus.

Jim Beckman serves as the executive director of Evangelization and Catechesis for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. Jim also is the executive director of ImpactCenter, a nonprofit dedicated to leadership development in the Catholic Church and serves as an adjunct professor for the Augustine Institute, teaching on leadership and discipleship.
