End of Year Events Prove to be Fun and Rewarding

It has been a busy finale to the school year! Here is a recap of the week's activities:

On Monday students in grades 7 - 11 completed final exams, but not without receiving some divine assistance courtesy of Fr. Rene celebrating the final Mass of the school year. Fr.

A Midsummer Night's Dream Nets Huge Turnout

The (hopefully first annual!) Spring Play on May 23-24 was a definite success, with over 170 total in attendance. There were a lot of laughs (from backstage as well as the audience!) as the students gave their all to play characters that have entertained audiences for more than 400 years, and perhaps most credibly at all, in Shakespeare's original words. Many thanks to all those who came to support - we're already looking forward to next year's production!

MRA was blessed to host Bishop Peter Libasci for our annual May Crowning celebration. Fr. Rene Butler concelebrated Mass with Bishop Libasci, Mary was processed around the gymnasium, each member of the school community brought a flower to Mary (with a special intention from the Bishop), a litany in honor to the Blessed Virgin was chanted, and we renewed our school's consecration to Our Lady. Afterwards, the entire student body ate lunch and cake together. It was truly a memorable day in MRA history!

Virtue Formation Provides Effective and Lasting Prevention

The term “bullying” has worked itself into our colloquial speech in recent years, with good reason. Bullying is recognized to be a prevalent and serious problem among school-aged children and is consequently the subject of numerous websites, public service announcements and anti-bullying campaigns.
