CATECHISM: Next week is our LAST week of catechism for the 2020-2021 year!  We hope that you have enjoyed catechism this year, even with all of the COVID restrictions.  We look forward to seeing any Pre-K through 5th graders for VBS in July.  (Older siblings are welcome to help out!)  Please register on our website for catechism in the new school year!

PENTECOST PACKAGES: Parents: We will be providing your families with a package of ideas and activities related to the celebration of Pentecost on 23 May.  We will distribute your packages to you from 1-3 pm on Saturday, 15 May!  Perhaps you can use the ideas from all of our packages for family activities throughout the summer!
