On Tuesday evening, May 1, Religious Education families will gather to celebrate Mass and honor the 8th grade students.  During this Mass they will be recognized for their participation in religious education classes.  More importantly, they will be invited to continue their faith development through service to the parish, high school retreats and ASP.  Religious education is a lifelong endeavor.
