It’s Holy Week! We are spending every day this week doing our school work for Jesus. We made a timeline of Jesus’ life from birth to Easter. For Good Friday the school will “unplug”, so no computers, document cameras , etc and we will have have all-school Stations of the Cross at 2pm. We will have silent dismissal on Good Friday. I hope you’ll come to the Holy Thursday mass at 7pm and Good Friday service at 7pm. Have a blessed Holy Week!
