LAP TIME! This Thursday at 10:00 am in the DeMazenod room! A bi-monthly gathering of parents/grandparents/ childcare providers with kids 0-3 years old, LAP TIME was created as a means of socializing and making new connections before your child’s preschool experience. We tell stories, sing songs, learn prayers and end with a craft! It’s lead by our preschool staff. It’s fun. It’s free. And YOU are invited! Bring your neighbor and their kids too!
OUR NEW PHONE SYSTEM has been installed and we are still working out the kinks. Indulge our request for your patience as we implement the new system.
Parents of 5-8th graders: Check your email for an IMPORTANT letter from IHM Athletic Director Steve Southerington!

IN APPRECIATION On behalf of our entire family, THANK YOU for your prayers of intercession, especially those of your children, for the successful surgery and healing of my husband Jay Lowe. The power of this praying community is a force to be reckoned with, and one we will be forever humbled by and grateful for. As soon as he’s back to full speed, Jay would like to come and thank your kids in person. Until then, please know that every morning, we unite our prayers with your intentions, asking our Good God to lavish you and your family with the grace to do wonderful things, for His glory. You’ve certainly done this already for us!
