Lots of Fun Ahead!

This time of year, we have so much to look forward to. The air is crisp and cool in the mornings, Homecoming is almost here, and the Holiday Auction is just around the corner.

We have a lot to be grateful for within our Xavier community. We hope to see you at our next Mothers' Guild meeting on Oct. 5 where Brianne Sanford will share what’s happening in Campus Ministry.

We'll also be joined by the Pink Ladies from Xavier's upcoming production of Grease, which is live at the Performing Arts Center later this month! You won't want to miss it.

See you soon!
