FROM THE PRINCIPAL:  This Sunday our Eighth grade students will be confirmed.  We pray that our Lord will equip us all our days for the demands of a bold and constant Christian witness.

THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE: The Lord in His infinite mercy has called Carla Ganswindt to be with Him in eternal life this morning.  We thank our Heavenly Father for the mercy that sent His own Son into death so that we will never be defeated by death.
