Our Lady of Charity

October 14, 2022

Dear Parents, This coming Sunday is the second grade student Mass at OLC. It will be at noon. Would you please attend with your family? We will have refreshments in the lunchroom after the service.

As I mentioned in a text message sent to you last Friday, all students will have free lunch beginning on Monday. A new Household and Income Form will be sent home with your child today. Please return it on Monday. If you paid for October, you will automatically receive a refund from the Food Service Professionals office; please allow 6 to 8 weeks for processing. Students in grades K - 2 will have free breakfast in their classrooms. Older students who would like a free breakfast should report to the lunchroom at 7:25. They cannot arrive before then, and they must eat.

Springfield was Splendid! Our 8th graders enjoyed beautiful weather when they visited last week. For many of them, the best part of their experience was the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum (see the photo below in front of the Lincoln Home).

Are you planning to have your 3rd - 8th grade child make his or her 1st holy Communion this school year? If so, email me or call Mr. Infante in the office no later than Monday.

Moving forward, the sacrament of confirmation will be conferred in 8th grade at OLC. If you would like your 8th grader to receive this sacrament this year, please let Mr. Infante or me know by Monday.
