A Note from the Principal
What a wonderful weekend we have coming up! Our dear eighth graders, with their fellow Confirmandi from the parish Religious Education program, will be confirmed on Saturday at a special Mass at Saint Rita Church at 10:00 am. The sacrament of Confirmation confers the seven gift of the Holy Spirit – wisdom, understanding, counsel, knowledge, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. As we pray for and celebrate with our eighth grade class as they receive these gifts and the indelible seal of Confirmation on Saturday, we renew our own Baptismal vows and remember the wonder we felt ourselves at our Confirmation. Many thanks to Mrs. McGraw, Father Gee and Father Bork – along with Miss Majano – in both preparing our students properly for the Sacrament and also for planning a beautiful liturgy.
We also thank our parents who will provide a lovely reception for our students and their families following the Confirmation Mass.
We are so excited about the Auction tomorrow night — we cannot wait! Have you seen all the wonderful things that will be up for bid in both the silent and live auctions? Wow! So many thanks go to our amazing friends in the PTO – especially Mrs. McAleer, Mrs. Heyse and Mrs. Smullen – along with a legion of helpers – who have planned such a memorable evening for us – it will be the social event of the year! And a very essential fundraiser for the school.
The children are looking forward to going into the informal uniform on Monday – please review the guidelines for the uniform on the website – and remember that all students are required to wear the formal uniform on Wednesdays for Mass.
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night for an evening of fun, fellowship and support for our school! And may Saint Rita continue to bless and guide all of our endeavors for her children.
