School starts next week. We have a new administration on board, and I am very excited about what
the new Principal and Vice-Principal, and new teachers bring to the table. We are committed to build our
community as one, as a family where all work together
and become stronger.

at the different groups that work in our parish and consider joining and or volunteering. That day there will
be a food sale to raise some funds.

Our community is a place where we gather in a respectful manner to praise the Lord and make our lives
God bless you all,
Saint Paul says, "Everyone must give according to
what he has inwardly decided; not sadly; not grudgingly, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (cf. 2 Cor. 9).
Thank you for your generosity.
San Pablo dice “Cada un debe dar de acuerdo con lo
que ha decidido en su interior; no con tristeza o remordimiento, porque Dios ama al que da generosamente.” (cf. 2 Cor. 9). Gracias por su generosidad.
