School Blessing Prayer Service~28 September 2022
On Wednesday, September 28th, Deacon Greg Kaiser joined our students and staff for an annual School Blessing Prayer Service.
Students read about St. Vincent de Paul, our September Saint of the Month, we prayed, we sang In Jesus’ Name, and gathered for the raising of the American flag.
On October 13, 2022, the student participated in the Living Rosary in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima.
