Last week, students from St. Mary of the Lake School participated in services honoring the memory of Francis Cardinal George, former Archbishop of Chicago. 

On Wednesday, the school choir attended the Interfaith service at Holy Name Cathedral. 

Our weekly mass on Thursday was said in memory of Francis Cardinal George and was even covered by a reporter and camera crew from ABC7 News! During this mass, first communicants who had not yet celebrated the Sacrament of Baptism were baptized. 

Later that day, ABC7 reporter Evelyn L. Holmes came up to the 8th grade classroom. To the delight of many, she was gracious enough to share her microphone!
