Transitions go into effect August 18th
The announcement of the transfer of Father Williams has become a bittersweet reality for our school community. We will certainly miss Father Williams, and are grateful for the past 4 years we have enjoyed with him as a part of our school community! It was very nice of Father Williams to invite Father Healy for a visit to the school at the end of the 2020-2021 school year, so students and faculty could get to meet him in-person.
Join us in welcoming Fr. Healy to our school community!
