A Prayer for our Graduates Heavenly Father, we thank you for the wonderful privilege of knowing these young graduates and their families. We pray that each one will remain firm in the truths they have learned throughout their youth and that each one may come to know your Son Jesus ever more deeply with each passing day. Please watch over and help them to use their gifts and talents to make the world a better place so their lives may always be a witness to your love and glory to all those they meet wherever their journey in life takes them. We pray that they will always remember that they are loved and valued by our parish community and are welcome back any time the opportunity arises. Amen.

The National Museum of Mexican Art provided art classes to our 6th and 7th graders this spring. The classes culminated in an art exhibit held here at school last Tuesday. Students used their own personal interests to express themselves visually through painting, design and sticker making. The exhibition showed a variety of art making techniques.

4th graders took a field trip to the Morton Arboretum in Lisle this week. Their guide explained the importance of trees to help fight climate change.
