The Saint Benedict Academy school community celebrated the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary with Father Jerome Day at Saint Raphael Parish on Monday, December 9. As Fr. Jerome remarked, Christ calls us to come as we are – even in our gym uniforms; He simply wants us to come and to love. The students responded to the morning call for Mass as altar servers, lectors, and even a chorus – Mr. O’Brien would have been proud. The school community will not celebrate Mass on Tuesday, December 10. The next school Mass will be on Tuesday, December 17th at noon. That Mass will be followed by an Advent Prayer Service which the Third Grade class will lead.
