Marian Medal Award Info Meeting

Parents and daughters are invited to this meeting on Tuesday, June 2 at 7:00pm in the School Library.

The Marian Medal (Mary, the First Disciple) is a program for 7-9th grade girls to learn about and become closer to Our Blessed Mother. It is written for young Catholic girls to enable them to “proclaim the greatness of the Lord.” This is accomplished by actively involving the participants in an understanding of Mary as a model of openness and spirituality ― a woman of the Church. Through various projects, discussions, and liturgical celebrations over a period of months, the participants are provided with a unique opportunity to develop new insights into their personalities, friends, parents, and the world around them.

Questions and to RSVP, please contact Jan Wenzel at jmwenzel15@juno.com. Please RSVP so that we can plan appropriately!

From our Pastor:
It is with great emotions that another class of St. Gertrude Catholic School will be graduating this Thursday. They have received an excellent education here at SGS, and now with prayers we must say goodbye and send them off to high school. May God bless all of them as they continue into higher education.
Rev. André-Joseph LaCasse, O.P., Pastor
