Three Things Thursday – Thank you for your generous donations last Thursday. We are still accepting donations to remember some of our own OLG families in a special way during this upcoming Christmas season. Please contact Mr. Clady at email@example.com if your family has needs or concerns for Christmas. One of the best gifts of Christmas is the gift of giving.
New Church Year, New Tradition Begins – Starting December 1st, K- 8 students will attend mass twice a week as an entire school community. Each Wednesday and Friday, students will gather together in the church for 8:30am mass. Advent marks the beginning of a new church year, and what better time to begin a new tradition. OLG School fully embraces our catholic identity, and we love having another opportunity each week to pray, give thanks, break open God’s word, and celebrate Eucharist with one another.
