REMINDER: Back to School Mass & Pot Luck Lunch, Sunday

Just a reminder...Back To School Mass/Potluck THIS SUNDAY, September 9

1. We are hoping that as many of you as possible will come and celebrate the start to the 2012-2013 school year at the 10 a.m. Mass at St. Joachim in Sunapee. EVERYONE is invited to attend this Mass, regardless of whether or not you are Catholic. There are going to be 10 pews reserved for Mount Royal Families, so we are asking you to arrive at the church closer to 9:30 so that we can fill those pews first.

2. MOUNT ROYAL STUDENTS SHOULD WEAR THEIR SCHOOL UNIFORMS TO THE MASS. Feel free to bring a change of clothes for the kids to play in afterwards.

3. Following Mass, your family is invited to a potluck reception back at the school. Please bring a dish or two to share - you can sign up by visiting this link:

The school will supply drinks for the reception.

4. We are honored to have our visiting scholar, author Joseph Pearce, speaking at the school following lunch (12:30).

We are looking forward to sharing this special Mass with parishioners of St. Joachim/St. Patrick. It would be wonderful to see the church packed with MRA Families!
