Together again

Sr. Frances (looking at camera) and Bro. John
Last week, as you know, we celebrated Mass for the feast of St. John Baptist de la Salle.  We also used the occasion to mark our annual Grandparent's Day and to honor our local men and religious (rescheduled from a snow day in February).  Our good friend, Bro. John McMahon, FSC joined us for the Mass as did our founding assistant principal, Sr. Frances Lessard, CSC.  Bro. John taught here from 1967-1972 and Sr. Frances from 1970-? (I'm not sure when she left but it was around 1973 or 74).  They hadn't seen each other in over 40 years so it was so nice to see them reunite.

Unfortunately, Sr. Frances' memory isn't what it once was so she didn't remember many people but to have these two founders together again was quite moving.
