3rd Grade Weekly Update

“But who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15)

I look forward to seeing everyone at Fall Fiesta on Sunday. Students must meet me in Room 13 at 11:45 AM. The performance will start promptly at 12 PM. Please plan time to find parking because the Fiesta brings in a lot of people and finding parking can be tricky.

I would also like to encourage you to attend the Mass at 10:30 AM on Sunday. Fr. Scott will be officially installed as pastor of St. Mary Church at that Mass. Auxiliary Bishop Dolan will be co-presiding, which is a big deal! Many of our students will be helping with the Mass by doing the readings, bringing up the gifts, and singing in the choir. I hope to see you there.
