Graduation Day

Last night was graduation night for our son. It was a wonderful evening and we are so proud of him.

One of my two brothers, who is the Godfather, and his daughter traveled from Texas to be with us along with my parents. Our good friends, Sister R and Sister C, who spent many years at our parish, joined us for lunch, but unfortunately, Sister R became ill and they could not join us for the graduation.

The weather cooperated and the thunderstorms held off until we returned home. The ceremony was beautiful and we were honored to have our Bishop in attendance. The class was the smallest in the school's history as there was a chance of the school closing right before he entered. But 172 students and their trusting parents took the chance and registered and with the help of the Bishop, the school has survived and is flourishing.
