Fr. John’s Weekly School Chronicle
Tuesday was an exciting day as our 7-8 grade
girls’ volleyball team ran into some very tough competition. Until Tuesday they
had been undefeated, but unfortunately came up against a really talented team
from Gethsemane. I was truly proud of how our girls battled back after getting
behind in the first game to win. While they lost the match, they are well
prepared to start playoff competition.
With no school this Friday and next, it is two
weeks of school without a school Mass. I was pleased to hear our teachers
talking about what a great loss it is for us when we don’t have Mass as a part
of our week.
Sister Margaret is now home, but is still easing
back into activities. She reports that with the nice weather she is enjoying
short walks outside by her home. We look forward to when she will feel well
enough to be back at school with us.
Readings for next Friday’s school Mass can be found here:

2016 – All Saints Day)
