Have you heard about the SGO (Scholarship Granting Organization)? It is a great way to help our diocesan schools with financial aid to qualifying families and it provides a tax credit to the donor! Tax credits include a 50% state tax rebate and 25% federal deduction off the remaining amount of the donation.
On November 17, St. Matthew Cathedral School played host to the Parish and School Craft Bazaar. The gym and school hallways were filled with over 65 vendors who participated in the event. From holiday gifts to scarves for pets, soaps to knick-knacks, and holiday signs to religious reading materials, the halls of St. Matthew were a flurry of activity and holiday cheer!
As we await the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ, our school community has enjoyed many opportunities to prepare the way for the Lord. Each week of Advent has begun with a prayer service with the whole student body coming together, praying and singing hymns. Opportunities for prayer and service abound throughout the school to remind our students that we must patiently wait and eagerly prepare for the arrival of the baby Jesus.
