On February 1, some of our Advanced Band students competed in a regional solo and ensemble competition. Congratulations to Madelyn Samuels, Maggie Couture, Kaylen Wesolowski, Valerie Donndelinger and David Donndelinger for competing in this event! Madelyn, Maggie and Kaylen earned a silver medal on their woodwind trio, Valerie earned a gold medal on her clarinet solo and David earned a silver medal on his snare drum solo. For the first time ever this year, the St. Jude Advanced Band is preparing to go to an ensemble competition on Saturday, March 21. We are proud of the great work our students and Director Mrs. Voll has done to get them to this point. Great job band!
***** ********** ***** Congratulations to the following St. Jude Graduates at Marian High School who had art projects recognized in the prestigious Scholastic Art Competition currently on display at the South Bend Regional Museum of Art:
Alexis Chrobot (St. Jude 2016) – Silver Key
Grant Matthys (’16) – Silver Key/Honorable Mention
The Young Vincentians made 102 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and packed them in bags with fruit, water, and other snacks for the homeless to be distributed through the Winter Amnesty program. The kids also wrote letters of encouragement for each bag. They look forward to doing this again next week and want to try and make 120 this time.
The St. Jude Rosary Sodality has taken on the ministry of creating Prayer Blankets.

Thank you and God bless you! ~ The St. Jude Rosary Sodality
