Welcome Back

Welcome back faculty, staff students and families.  We especially welcome our new students and families to our school.  We are blessed with so many new faces.  Welcome to our newest members of our staff.  We truly this year are blessed to have such a strong and dedicated group of faculty members.  May God bless us all during the 2017-2018 school year.

2016 Retreat at Assumption College

On March eleventh our sophomores, juniors and seniors attended a day long retreat at Assumption College. Our theme was the Year of Mercy. Students learned how to be merciful in their everyday lives. The day included talks by students and activities. The day concluded with Reconciliation and Mass led celebrated by Fr. James Hoey of Spencer.

March For Life

We experienced a faith-filled day at St. Mary’s on January 22nd. In lieu of going to Washington, D.C. to attend the March for Life, students had a faith-filled day here at our school. Students began the day making an advertisement for life, followed by Mass, Adoration and praying of the Stations for Life. Students in grades 10-12 then went to Planned Parenthood for a peaceful hour of prayer with Bishop McManus. The remainder of the students made cards for the moms at visitation house and wrote letters to their legislators. We concluded our day by watching Heaven is for Real. I was so impressed by the sincerity of our students on this very special day.

Visitors

Bishop McManus, Monsignor Johnson and Father Polek visited the school on Friday. The school choir as well as many of the elementary school classes sang religious for our guests. Bishop McManus blessed each of the students and their families. We thank Bishop McManus for supporting our school.

Catholic Schools Week

Thank you to everyone who made Catholic Schools Week successful, despite the shortened week. There was much community spirit, talent and knowledge displayed by all of our students.
