Mrs. Gaherty's second grade class had their May Crowning during our May 16th school Mass. The students wore their First Holy Communion attire for the occasion. The second graders were cantors, readers, and gift bearers during the Mass. It was a beautiful tradition that our second graders really enjoy participating in.
Our 2019 St. Francis Catholic School Gala will be held on Saturday, March 23rd at the Sonesta Resort. Check back here periodically for updates. Hope to see you there!
