On Tuesday afternoon I had another "final event" in the journey - the final scheduled Mass for our Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School family. I celebrated the feast of Saint Mark for the youngsters from grades one through five, along with a number of parents and guests, in the school chapel. As always, it was a wonderful expression of faith and love.
At the close of the liturgy, there was a surprise presentation made by one of the students on behalf of the school family.
A while back, when Bishop Malesic visited the school and blessed the new chapel, he was presented with a similar image. In an observation at the time I shared my admiration for it's unique beauty. And now I am the proud recipient of this expression of love that will be for me a life-long remembrance of my time in the Norwin area. To the school family, a great big THANK YOU!
