Get On The Bus Will Roll Saturday, June 2

Thanks to each of you. Our goal was $8,000, we are almost there!

Help is still needed for the activity bags. In these bags are items for ages 1 and up to help the children and teenagers have something to do on their four-hour bus ride each way. Please help! Suggestions: puzzle books, story books, travel games and things easily held in the hands. Bring these items in by Sunday, May 20 to either the parish office or the school office. Last year we gave them a very skimpy bag, so let’s do it up well this wear.
