We anticipate starting after school Religious Education sessions back up on Monday, April 20th, and Tuesday, April 21st.
The youth choir should start back up on Monday, April 20th, at 5 pm in the fine arts building.
The First Eucharist “mini-retreat” is still a go for Saturday, April 18th, from 9am to 11:30 pm in the Holy Cross activity center cafeteria. As of now, 2nd graders receiving the Sacrament of Eucharist for the first time will happen as planned on the first weekend of May. Parents will be informed if there are any changes to this schedule. It is very important that parents practice receiving the Eucharist with their child and for the time being view Mass at home and attend when things start back up in a couple weeks!
