Catholic Schools Week (reprinted)
When we return from break, Catholic Schools Week (CSW) will be just weeks away. I’ll be sending home communication asking for help with various activities and wanted to give you a heads-up. We will be looking for helpers for all Masses on January 26—readers, choir members, gifts, ushers, etc. Please plan to attend and help out as a family where possible. Catholic United Financial will also be hosting a breakfast that morning which benefits the school. We will need helpers with serving and clean-up. Our trip to Powder Ridge is scheduled for Thursday, 1/30,
