Confirmation Retreat - December 7 to 9

We will meet on Friday, December 7 at 4:00 pm at Saint Anne Church to board buses and will depart for the retreat soon after. See the handout with the permission slip, list of things to bring, and other details.

Parents need to pick up their students from Mission Springs Christian Retreat Center in Scotts Valley (in the Santa Cruz mountains) on Sunday afternoon. Parents are invited to join us for Mass at the retreat, which will begin at 1:30 pm. We ask that you arrive no earlier than 1:00 pm. 

Finish your brown bag project, if you haven't already!

Your Brown Bag Project were due on November 11. We gave this to you on September 9 and gave you eight weeks to work on it. Those who turn in their brown bags on time will be able to sign up for rooms on the retreat first, before those who are late.
