This weekend I will travel to Holy Name Parish in Sheridan to preach at all of the weekend Masses and close out Catholic Schools Week. I will also be closing out their year long celebration of marking their school's 100th anniversary. Holy Name School began in 1914 and last year during Catholic Schools Week they began their year long celebration marking this milestone. Now that we have completed the year 2014 and moved into 2015 the anniversary celebration will draw to a close.
Although Catholic Schools Week will be over, I plan to visit St. Anthony's Tri-Parish Catholic School in Casper on Monday as I make my trek from Sheridan back to Cheyenne. Traveling across the state during the winter is always a bit of a gamble. Snow is in the forecast for the weekend, but I am hoping it does not hinder my travel plans.
To all of the pastors, principals, teachers, and support staff at our Catholic schools I simply say, "Thank you."
