The Saint Patrick School Community thanks the Corpus Christi Parishioners
Saint Patrick School held it's annual Corpus Christi Parishioner "Partnership in Catholic Education" appeal in the Fall of 2013. The appeal asked parishioners to assist the "parish school" by sponsoring our students, faculty, student enrichment programs and/or utility costs for the 2013-14 school year. With Fr. Gary's support and blessing, the parishioners donated nearly $30K to the school. The school is blessed to have such generous support from our Parish Community. We thank you all!
St. Pat's children collect winter gear for St. Vincent de Paul Society
During the four weeks of Advent, the students in Middle Meeting collected cold weather gear. The goal was to have one pair of gloves/mittens, one hat or one scarf from each student. The students surpassed their goal by leaps and bounds. In all, they were able to donate 113 items to the Exeter St. Vincent de Paul Society. Miss McNamara's (Technology Teacher) parents volunteer there and they said, "We had just given out the last of our supply and your gifts were a Godsend. Many children will be "warmer", because of your sacrifices." Nice work Grades 2,3,4 and 5!!!
