We are honored to welcome Reverend Ron Kalas, Vicar for Vicariate II, Governor Pat Quinn, Alderman Ameya Pawar and our Pastor, Msgr. Jim Kaczorowski as special guests and speakers for our Blue Ribbon Breakfast celebration this Friday, October 11. We hope you, too, are looking forward to this event. Only 50 private schools in the nation received this prestigious award in 2013!
We are planning for a large crowd and press coverage. As a result, Western Avenue may look like Grand Central Station. Here's some advice to help our parish family enjoy this special morning:
- 7:30 a.m. - Come early! Breakfast begins.
- 7:55 a.m. - School children report to teachers in assigned areas.
- 8:05 a.m. - Formal presentation begins.
- 8:30 a.m. - Children enter school with their teachers.
- 9:00 a.m. - Breakfast ends.
Walk or bike if you can; parking will be a challenge. No parking will be available in front of the school on Western Avenue as this area will be blocked off for the governor. Due to the anticipated high volume of participants in Friday's Blue Ribbon Breakfast, please allow ample time to find parking on neighborhood residential streets as the parking lot will fill quickly.
