We always close out our Catholic Schools Week with a school-wide Mass. This year it was going to be extra special as we invited local men and women religious to be with us as the Church concluded the Year of Religious Life. We had well over 60 women religious RSVP, three religious priests, and two Christian Brothers, our good friends Bros. John McMahon, FSC and Edward Shield, FSC. Bros. John and Edward arrived on Thursday as they live in New Jersey and New York, respectively, and joined the faculty for lunch (Thursday was a dress down day for staff only and we got a free lunch!). The brothers also watched "LV's Ride" with some of the students.
However, there was a big snowstorm in New England on Friday so we could not hold our Mass and reception. I know many of the religious were looking forward to the day so we rescheduled it for April 7, the feast of St. John Baptist de la Salle.
