Congratulations to Kate Naughton for earning the National Girl Scout Religious Award, “Spirit Alive”
recently. This award program is designed to assist girls in grades 9-12 in discovering how the Holy Spirit
moves within their lives, calling them to a greater participation in the ministry of the Church. Kate will
be recognized by Bishop Gainer for achieving this award at the annual Scout Mass on April 22, 2018 at
Good Shepherd Church. Because Kate has earned at least three National Girl Scout Religious Emblems,
she is now a recipient of the prestigious Region 3 Scout Award.
Tomorrow, February 14th is Ash Wednesday and the first day of Lent! Our parish Mass schedule is: 6:45am, 9:00 am, 7:00 pm.
