Mass Tomorrow

Our next Mass will be celebrated tomorrow, Friday, September 9 at 10:00 am in the Monastery Chapel. Our celebrant will be Father Michael Hann from Missionhurst, Arlington, (Summer Uniform). All are welcome


Speed Limit

Please remember that the speed limit around the school is 5mph. It is imperative that this speed limit be observed for the safety of ALL our students.

Also, please be patient while waiting to exit onto Linton Hall Road. The left turn is challenging and visibility is not always clear.

To help the afternoon car pool run more smoothly, please place a large sign with your name on your windshield.
