Family Newsletter of Our Lady of Good Counsel

Welcome back and Happy Fall!   Our first days were well organized and certainly well attended.  I thank our dedicated catechists who were willing to change their schedules and take on added responsibilities to accommodate our growing enrollment.  We have added additional classes and those on home school were contacted.

Attendance at our sacramental parent and child meetings was exemplary and we look forward to the sacramental journey with all of you.  Any questions about upcoming events, dates, practices, protocols,  please do not hesitate to call us.

Looking Ahead:

No class Monday, Tuesday October 8-9 for Columbus Day.
