Feast of St. Julie Billiart

Dear RE Families,
Alleluia, Christ has risen!  I hope your Easter was wonderful and now we celebrate the highest of feast days for the next 50 days leading up to Pentecost.  

We are quickly approaching the end of our Religious Education year, only a little over a month left.  There is a lot left to be done, including First Holy Communion for our 2nd grade class!  Continue to keep these little ones in your prayers as they get closer to their big day.

As is our end of year tradition, our closing Mass for Religious Education is on Monday, May 13 at 6:30pm in Church.  We will wish our 8th graders a fond farewell as they embark on their high school journey and send them on their way with a small token of thanks.  We will also celebrate the great year with some ice cream treats.  The whole family is welcome to attend and celebrate with us!
