Our Mother of Consolation School held it’s annual Prayer Convocation on Tuesday, September 20. Over 200 students, families and staff gathered in the parish church on the eve of the first day of school. The annual gathering was created by Our Mother of Consolations’ Spirituality Committee. Reverend Robert L. Bazzoli, O.S.F.S., pastor of Our Mother of Consolation led the school community in prayer.
Following the prayer convocation, ice cream was served in the front school yard, which is currently under renovation for the school’s youngest students and will include a prayer garden, large playground and stepping stones made from reclaimed wood. Students were able to reconnect with fellow classmates and share stories from their summer activities.
