We are proud of our Religious Education families as they live out the Gospel message through “loving God, and loving others”.  If you have a child who doesn’t attend a Catholic school...there is still time to enroll them in the Religious Ed Program.  Contact Sandy or Sue at 362.8148.


Be a Blessing! St. Ludmila Rel. Ed. students are putting together "Blessing Bags" for the homeless. We invite you to also think about doing this and "be a blessing" to someone in need.

Using a gallon size plastic bag fill it with items that would help sustain someone for a day or more. The bag may contain these items: small hand sanitizer or bar soap, toothpaste/toothbrush, small deodorant, shampoo packet, granola bar or crackers, small bottle of water, chapstick, small fruit packet, etc. Dollar stores are great for finding things that could be put into the bag. A gift card would also be appreciated. Make sure you write a prayer of blessings and let the person know you are praying for him/her. Keep this bag in your car and as you see a need, give it to that person. Let us continue to be "blessings to one another". Thank you. Sue Berger/Director
