CATHEDRAL SCHOOL NEWS
We are in need of substitute teachers. A four-year degree is required but the degree does not have to be in education. Contact Melissa in the main office at 715-392-2976 for more information. The Cathedral Home and School Association continues to collect Box Tops for Education. They can be found on several products including food, household items, tableware, office supplies and even bakeware. These can be dropped off at the school office. Thank you!
ST. LAWRENCE SEMINARY HIGH SCHOOL
St. Lawrence Seminary High School in Mt. Calvary, WI. Is currently suggesting a visit for all Catholic young men who have questions and would like more information on the school. Routine is an important element to a young man’s success in school. While academics are the core, co-curriculars, prayer and free time balance out a student’s schedule. Mass is celebrated on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Take a step toward your son’s future by visiting www.stlawrence.edu or call 920-753-7570. The school is located at 301 Church Street, Mt. Calvary, WI. 53057
Recently, through the Sacrament of Baptism, we welcomed Jack Warren Champagne, son of Charles & Mckenzie. Jack’s godparents are Adam Moorse & Natalie Kintop.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow. The same loving Father who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from all suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength. Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings. St. Francis deSales
