Students need to be experienced readers who have been lectors at school masses. Permission slips were sent home on Friday for students who have volunteered to read or bring up the gifts at mass. We need students at 5pm, 8am, 10am and 12:30pm Spanish mass. If any other students want to volunteer, let us know on Tuesday. We are grateful for the students who share their talents and gifts with our St. Mary Church Parish! THE SUNSHADE PROJECT IS ON ITS WAY! Construction on the Sun Hat to cover the new elementary playground equipment AND to add a covered area for picnic tables for our students to use will be starting soon. Thank you to Diane Braswell who secured an $8,000 grant and raised $14,000 from other generous donors to make this project come to life. We are excited for the extra shade over the playground and for a shaded area for our students to sit and enjoy the outdoors. A dedication ceremony is planned for May.
