This week's adventures...
     A fast, four day school week ends with one of the most moving and solemn parts of the liturgical year. Beginning this evening, with the Mass of the Lord's Supper, we will begin the journey with Our Lord through His passion, death and resurrection. Please plan on validating the truths of our faith that we teach your children here at school, by being active participants in the Triduum.

     The anticipated resurrection of Our Lord will be a wonderful onset to a week away from school!  Our faculty and students will enjoy a rest and reprieve from the normal activity, as we enjoy our April vacation! When we return to school on Monday the 24th the joys of the Easter season will continue, as we celebrate the season in a multitude of ways! Classroom teachers will be unveiling their crucifixes and statues, and will begin to rehearse for our Easter Celebration set to take place on Friday, May 5th at 1pm.
     If you have not done so already, please consider making your reservations for our major fundraiser of the school year, OPEN DOORS.  This is our school's largest fundraiser that will not only generate our fundraising goal for the year, but above and beyond that goal, we will also raise funds for specific school improvements. You will not want to miss out on this exciting evening!

 Have a blessed, prayerful Triduum and we will see you all after the Resurrection!!
God bless!
