Regina Parents,

  • Clark McFerren, 43 yrs at Regina Jr/Sr High School
  • Jan Rudolf, 24 yrs at Regina Elementary School
  • Don Hurt, 17 yrs at Regina Education Center Maintenance

In the high school today we congratulate the following students for taking on new leadership responsibilities in service to our school.

  • Secretary - Jack Tierney
  • Treasurer - Michael Takacs

Class Representatives:

  • 9th - Ben Klitgaard

As this week completes the third week of classes and most jr/sr high students have completed some graded coursework, we encourage parents and students alike to check-in online in JMC and have a discussion about how the semester is progressing.

For preschool and elementary students and parents, next Thursday September 15th is Back to School Night, which offers a great opportunity to meet your children's teachers and check-in on their progress face-to-face.

Lynne Devaney,

Junior high and high school girls from any of the Iowa City area parishes are invited for a special evening of fun and faith-building at St Patrick's, on Saturday, September 24th,  from 8:00 - 10:00 pm. There's no cost, but RSVP is needed by Saturday, Sep. 17 for planning purposes.

Moms (and/or older sisters) of girls attending are invited to come as well!

They will welcome sharing of "God moments" from your own life during dessert time if you’re comfortable sharing (very informally, just talking around the table).

Please email for more information and/or to RSVP for this fun event.
