Principal's Letter
Dear OLG Families,

You recently received from me a special bulletin regarding the next three days, the Triduum. The Sacred Easter Triduum is a wonderful way to bring an end to Lent and to move into the celebration of Easter! We hope to see you tonight at our Soup Supper, or at any of the next three days-in-a-row-liturgical-blitz!

Jog-a-Thon, is coming just five days after spring break ends! Get all your pledges in by the run on May 3rd! We've got prizes for anyone who's reached the $100 (~$5/lap total) and the $150 (~$7/lap) levels! Just send in your pledge form or simply notify your child's teacher you've reached that level. More info below or on the website to do an online pledge, emails, and more!

Tomorrow we end this Holy Week with a Living Stations of the Cross led by our 7th graders. If you can't make it at 11am for this special student-led prayer, feel free to come at 3pm for a Stations led by Fr. Jack! Happy Easter & Spring Break!
Yours in Christ (He is RISEN!),

Anton Kramer
