Local, national, worldwide and Vatican news, as well as diocesan, parish, and school stories, articles and events are delivered right to your home.

Help Saint Mary School earn a few extra dollars and help to save the planet at the same time! The big green and yellow bin on our parking lot holds all of our recycled paper; every month, we receive a check (averaging about $90.00) for the paper we have in our bin.  Many German Village residents use our bin and we invite our parish families to recycle all their household newspapers, junk mail, and magazines, too. The more paper recycled, the more we earn-- and we’ve saved a tree or two, as well.

From now until March 31, Abitibi Recycling is offering a special recycling promotion: If we can increase our paper recycling by 25%, they will send us a check for $250; if we increase our recycling by 50%, we’ll receive a check for $500! Please save up your household paper and drop it in the recycling bin and make sure this bulletin is recycled, too! No cardboard please.

The focus will be on practical things parents can do at home to support their children, including the technique of role playing exercises with kids, the goal being able to stop the cycle. Presenter: Jim Bisenius.
