Welcome to Second Grade


May 7, 2018

Dear Parents,

Congratulations to Giacomo, Ben, Kathleen, Maggie, Amelia, Natalie, Jacob, Ann, Angel, Leah, Dillon, and Scott on having recently received their First Holy Communion. Please join me in praying for them to continue to walk in the light of Christ. That the Eucharist may strengthen their relationships with God and that they may allow The Holy Spirit to work through them to bring about peace, love, and justice in our world. Thy Kingdom Come!

Next Friday is the Second Grade Mass and First Communion reception. All are welcome! It is a regularly scheduled Mass at 10:30. Please plan on joining us for Mass and a light lunch with cake to follow.  Please let Courtney Janicki know if you are willing to donate food, drinks, or help with set-up. Mark your calendar for May 25th.  The second grade will present the Hall of Heroes in St. Joe’s from 9-9:45 and again from 2:00-2:45.

Pray for me and I will pray for you,

Mrs. Hinton
