A WINNING SEASON!
Congratulations to the Queen of Angels 8th Grade Boys Volleyball Team. The team took first place in the Northwest Volleyball League.
The team had a perfect season with a record of 22-0. The final game, against the parents, ended their perfect season. Team members received individual plaques and a team trophy. Stop by the Guild Hall and see the trophy in the display case.
Congratulations to these champions and continued success to them as they move to high school. We also salute the sixth and seventh grade Boys Volleyball Team, as they took third place in the same league.

ORGAN RECITAL ON SUNDAY, JUNE 26
Do not miss a special musical opportunity at 4 pm. Sunday, June 26 at the Church. Kent Jager, the Director of Music at Queen of Angels, will play a recital on the newly restored Moller organ.
Since Easter you have heard the organ as part of weekly liturgies. Come hear some of the remarkable solo literature for the instrument. Included in the recital will be the Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C Major by J.S. Bach, the A Minor Chorale by Franck, and the Mendelssohn Sonata II.
The organ at Queen of Angels was installed in 1939. In an age when many pipe organs have fallen into disrepair and are silent, it is a tribute to the parishioners at Queen of Angels for their dedication to keeping this marvelous instrument in good repair. On June 26 we will celebrate the 66 years of music that have come from this instrument and look forward to the many more years of service as a result of the recent renovation.
