Dear OLMC Community,

This past week we had Fr. Robert came to speak with the children. His overall message was, “I love you, I love you, I love you so, so much!” The one word that comes to mind whenever I encounter Fr. Robert is “joy”. We are so blessed to have such wonderful priests! 

The Dads’ Club Back to School BBQ was another success! Thank you to all of the volunteers and parents for coming by for some food and fellowship.

Dear OLMC Community,

It is hard to believe July is coming to an end! If your child attended or volunteered at Vacation Bible School I am sure you heard what a successful week it was! It was so exciting to see so many current students participate and former students who came back to volunteer! I have some important information to pass along as we move closer to school.

Dear OLMC Community,

Dear OLMC Community,

We ended the school week with the procession to Our Lady of Fatima and an all school rosary with the intentions of the 8th graders. What a beautiful new tradition! This past weekend we celebrated the 8th graders with their dinner/dance. It was a lovely evening recounting all their fun times here at OLMC. So excited for their new adventures!

The 8th graders will be graduating this Wednesday at 7:00pm. Please keep them in your prayers.

OLMC Community,

What a beautiful weekend we had celebrating as a community! We had our May Crowning Mass on Friday. Caleb Donnellan and Grace Blackstad crowned Mary and they both gave beautiful reflections on the blessed Mother. The third graders and a few of the older students made their Confirmation and First Holy Communion this past Saturday. That evening the Dads’ Club hosted their end of the year BBQ! So joyous! They raised $20,000 to go towards resurfacing the basketball courts. Thank you for your generosity!
