Catholic Schools week has begun! With many contributions this morning to 10 am Mass, the children of Holy Redeemer were a hit. Many wore their uniforms to church in order to earn a free dress pass. The youngest children led the opening song, and sixth graders read the first and second readings.
All week long there are celebrations in store:
Each class has chosen its own free-dress theme.
Holy Redeemer Olympics feature performances and contests, and each class dresses in the color of a different country they’ve chosen to represent. (Typically, the Olympics has taken place on Thursday of Catholic Schools week.)
Grandparents’ and Special Friends Day – children will host their grandparents in their classrooms, and have a chance to visit the Scholastic Book Fair. Children will perform in the cafeteria for grandparents’ and special friends’ viewing pleasure. (Typically, a school Mass has been held on Wednesday of Catholic Schools week.)
In honor of the feast day of St. John Bosco, patron saint of Catholic schools, Archbishop Sample will say Mass for the community.
