Blaze Group Celebrates with End-of-Year Banquet
The Middle school Blaze group celebrated in an end-of-year celebratory banquet. Blaze is a Bible study that allows students to read and reflect upon Bible passages, important saints, and virtues. The group focuses on strengthening middle school girls in their faith and allowing them to make connections to their lives. Topics of discussion included discovering your purpose in God, leading a virtuous life, and building loving, supportive friendships as Christian women. The group met after school every Wednesday during the school year. Thank you to 6th Grade teacher, Julia Krieman '12, alumna Emily Bracken, and Pia Buentello for leading the girls. Both Emily and Pia are participating in an Apostolate mission year.
Volunteer Event
Today the students of Saints Peter and Paul School were excited to bring back the beloved tradition of the Volunteer Breakfast. The Pre-K through 8th Grade performed songs to express their gratitude to all of our volunteers for what they do for our school every day.
Thank you to our many volunteers for attending today. We could not do what we do without you!
