Fellowship Hosts from our school are needed after Mass for the weekend after Thanksgiving, November 25 & 26 for the 8am and 10:30 Masses. If you can give a few minutes to set up before Mass and about 20-30 minutes after Mass to help that weekend, it would be most appreciated. Contact Mrs. Bodinet if you are available to help.

8th Grade Shadow Days at McGivney! During the Shadow Day 8th graders will be matched with a McGivney Student ambassador to follow that students’ schedule, meet other students, teachers and be introduced to their school technology . At the end of the day, 8th grade family members will have the opportunity to meet with Mr. Lombardi, McGivney Principal, to talk and ask any questions. Check the Fr. McGivney website for a Shadow Day form to fill out if your 8th grader would like to visit.

Listening is often the greatest gift we can give to our students and to each other.
