SPIRIT OF ST ANNA GALA 2018
We are excited to bring you this year’s GALA! Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 7th. This year 2 complimentary Gala tickets were included with your paid tuition. You MUST RSVP and tickets are non-transferable and only one ticket per parent (two per family).
The Gala will be at the Wachusett Country Club with cocktails at 5:30 and dinner at 6:45. The Gala is Semi-Formal and includes appetizers, a buffet dinner, raffles, auction, music and more.
LENTEN FISH DINNERS
If you haven’t attended a fish dinner at St. Anna Church, you are missing out! It is the BEST baked haddock dinner around! Come out any or all Friday night’s during Lent for your fish dinner and support St. Anna Society. The St. Anna Society has graciously donated $10,000 to our school for the past couple of years. Let’s show them the same support.
See the FLYER for more details…
Father Fred would like to encourage you all to attend penance together as a family during the Lent Season. All Leominster Catholic Churches will be holding Penance every Tuesday during Lent at 7:00 PM.
It can be difficult to teach your children HOW to study or what to study. Your student in grades 5-8 are invited to attend a study skills workshop to learn how they learn best, organizational tools, explore note-taking; highlighting, understanding test questions and how to prepare for tests. March 3rd 10:00-1:00. Contact Allison Bunnel at firstname.lastname@example.org
