In honor of Our Blessed Mother, we held our annual May Crowning on May 5th. Valentina Villasboa (Grade 8) and Neva Brott (Kindergarten) had the privilege and honor of crowning the statue of the Blessed Mother this year. Together we prayed the Rosary as a school community in devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We thank all our students for praying the Holy Rosary with such reverence, and we thank those parents who were able to join us in prayer. We also thank Mrs. Debbie Mendez and Grade 8 prayer leaders for planning such a beautiful prayer service.
Congratulations to our 2nd grade students who received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on May 6th. We thank Father Michael Quilligan and Deacon Mitch Abdallah for a beautiful celebration! Thank you to our 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Ana Soto, and to our teacher aide, Mrs. Molly Werner, for preparing our students for this memorable day in their lives as Catholics…the reception of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ for the very first time. Thank you also to our Director of Religious Education, Mrs. Debbie Mendez! Congratulations again to our First Communicants and their families!
