Parents – Please watch your speed in and around the church parking lots. We have many students and at any time one could dart in front of your vehicle. Although we have many eyes watching, you know how fast something can change. Please maintain a speed limit of less than 10 MPH. Do your part to see that your child does not wander from you. Students should remain on sidewalks while waiting to be picked up and should use the crosswalk on the north east corner to the church grounds when traveling to and from the Activity Center/Building.

Please keep in mind that our Security Team (at all doors) is there to see that all children are safe. Please stop and remember that they are not volunteering their time to cause you inconvenience BUT to see that all children are safe during class time.

Spread that the Catechism Program has classes for children with special needs. This class, and only this class, does not require families to be parishioners and is free of charge.
