Dear St. Stephen families,
We have had a wonderful start to the new school year. It has been a joy to see all the students come back to school; especially having the Pre-school students on site with us this year! Welcome to Mrs. Bergmooser and Miss O’Connor; we are happy to have you with us.
In honor of the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, Fr. John took the school on a pilgrimage to The Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Riverview. The children attended Mass, and had the opportunity to visit the book store next to the Chapel. Thank you to the ladies at the Blue Army bookstore for taking the time to open it up for us. We had an all school Mass followed by a patriotic Rosary in memory of 9/11 on Sept. 11th. It was truly a beautiful homage to such a tragic day.
As always, I am humbled by the generosity of the parishioners. I know that I speak for the faculty when I say a great big thank you to the anonymous donor who paid for our new Literature textbooks. We also would like to say thank you for the heavy duty, yet stylish, rugs that are throughout the school. Your silent charity speaks volumes to us, and we are very grateful for your donations.
Mrs. Christine Vaughan
