Ahh…. there’s excitement in the air around SMMA as our school year draws to a close. Tonight we say GOODBYE to our wonderful 8th graders with their Graduation Mass at 7:00pm. May they continue “to be the hands, heart and feet of Jesus for others” (our school motto) during their high school days. And special blessings to their parents for making the sacrifices to send them to a Catholic School. I love our graduates!
Then for the rest of our students their last day of school is next Tuesday. If you’re anywhere close by that day, you’ll undoubtedly here loud squeals of delight, as they are quite ready for Summer! I know we all pray they have a very safe and exciting Summer.
Also join me in saying CONGRATS! to all our young parishioners graduating at this time of the year, especially our high school and college students. Hope to see you at the church doors!
We have a special “confession time” next Thursday May 26th, in church from 3:30 – 5:00pm. Fr. Michael Geisler, an Opus Dei Priest, will be here to hear confessions.

Memorial for Lost Children
The Respect Life Committee is currently in the planning phase to erect a stone “Memorial for Lost Children.” With this memorial we remember all children lost to abortion, miscarriage, still birth, accident and illness. These memorials bring hope and healing to families suffering such a loss.
An artist’s rendering of the proposed memorial is shown above. We hope to have it installed for Respect Life Month in October.
If you would like to contribute funds to help in the completion of this project please place your donation in an envelope marked “Respect Life Memorial” and return it to the parish office or place it in the collection basket.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
