Monthly Parent & Student Newsletter
Celebrating the start of the school year, we joined in prayer for our first all-school liturgy on Tuesday, August 28 with an opening Mass. The presider was Father Dan McCarthy and our Chamber Orchestra and Liturgical Choir led us in music for our worship.
Following the liturgy, our top scholars were recognized for their academic achievements. It was great to be together as a school community reconnecting with each other and welcoming new students, faculty and staff.
We are looking forward to the year ahead!
