You, Agnes, followed Christ, even to death. Teach us to love Him
as you loved Him; to witness to Him as you did, with courage; to put love
for Him before our own lives; to renounce the idols presented to us by society;
to risk everything in response to His fidelity. Amen

Oldies But Goodies:
The school’s water was tested a few months ago. The results came back and indicated that one fixture in the Newman Kitchen exceeded the NYS DOH’s action level of lead of 15 ppb. That fixture has been labeled “Not for Drinking or Cooking” and will be shut off. The complete report is embedded below. The use of water bottles is no longer necessary.
