St. Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury  
Feast Day:  April 21

St. Anselm is one of the few saints recognized as a Doctor of the Church. What does that mean?  A Doctor of the Church is recognized for significantly impacting Christian teaching in at least one area. Even though he lived so long ago ( 1033 to 1109), his teaching is still relevant today.

Hot Lunch Update: Salad Bar
The salad bar is available daily as another healthy lunch option. The cost is the same as the current lunch pricing (PreS - 3rd $3.95 / 4th - 8th $4.95) and early ordering discounts apply.  We also offer a Side Salad at a cost of $1.00; this allows students to create their own side salad to accompany their Hot Lunch Meal.  

Annual Members, please reach out to Tracy Whalen for instructions on choosing the Salad Bar option or if you want to order a side salad to go with the Hot Lunch meal for your child.
