Today we praise the men and women who sacrificed their lives in the name of our country. Their selfless devotion, outstanding courage, and honor should inspire us to make their sacrifice meaningful. May the Lord of All, Merciful and Loving God reward them with eternal joy.
We are mourning those who died for the United States to remind ourselves of worthy ideals, virtues, and priorities. May their sacrifice be a constant reminder of things that matter.
May our eternal gratitude for the sacrifice these men and women made bring us peace and hope for a better tomorrow.
Students of St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy presented the fabulous Tribute to St. John Paul II on Friday May 18, 2018 which happened to be the birthday of Karol Wojtyla, the late pope, St. John Paul II. It was a great lesson of history with live music and songs. The show was created by Mrs. Bozena Konkiel, the music teacher at the Academy. Over 200 students had their part and participated in the show. Congratulations to ALL for job well done!!!!
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
