Hello Parents! I hope everybody enjoyed the two week holiday. We just completed our first week back and it was good to see all those little faces again. I want to remind you that First Holy Communion is Saturday, May 4th at St. Patrick's Church. I know May seems far off but trust me it will be here before you know it. Information regarding this blessed event will be going home as the date approaches.
