Archbishop Vigneron Statement on the Election of Pope Francis

“Praise be the Lord Jesus, who has given us Pope Francis to be our Holy Father. I join all the faithful in thanking Christ for this grace, which we have prayed ardently for in these days.

With hearts full of love and filial affection, we welcome Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ and the successor of Saint Peter, with thanks for his generosity in accepting the Lord’s call to follow him and to strengthen our faith.

The new Holy Father spoke of our walking with him ‘on the way’ and asking us to ask God to bless him. We will go forward joyfully together, confident in the power of the Good News we bear to the world.”

Our Lady of Refuge Youth Drama Club

For 14 years Our Lady of Refuge School has had a successful student Drama Club under the direction of Mr. Michael Brody and each year they have presented a full musical (Raven Revue) for family and friends. This past year they presented Disney’s “Mulan.” Students, parents and volunteers have banded together to bring great family entertainment year after year.

Now with the new redesigned Father Bartol Performing Arts facility, the club is more than excited to get back into action!

To celebrate the new facility, the Drama Club is now opening participation to ANY parish student from grades 4 through 8— regardless of the school you attend. The rehearsals are scheduled for late afternoons (after school hours) concluding with the full parish performances scheduled in May 2013.

Students, parents and families may have questions on how this scheduling will work and we invite you to a OLR Drama Club Open House. This will be held in the Social Hall on Thursday, September 27th from 3:30-7:00pm You can stop by at any time during those hours to speak with Mr. Brody and learn more about this year’s exciting plans. Whether you are a returning member or brand new to drama, we look forward to meeting you!!!
