MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL:
Today we will celebrate Baccalaureate Mass at St. Bernadette at 7:00pm. This is the last mass that the Class of 2017 will celebrate together. Their long journey through elementary and high school will come to an end Sunday at 2:00pm as they graduate from Fisher Catholic High School. We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors and we would like to congratulate the graduates and their families on this accomplishment.
If you would like to join us at either the mass or the commencement exercises we would love to see you.
Diocesan Tuition Assistance letters have been sent out. Please note: These letters are for Diocesan Tuition Assistance which does not include tuition assistance from the school. Tuition assistance directly from Fisher Catholic has not been determined at this time, however, will be in the near future.

REFLECTIONS FROM THE DESK OF THE DEAN:
The class of 2017 is graduating this weekend. It has taken a village; but off they go. You parents should be proud of your sons and daughters. They have worked hard, they have struggled, they have had fun and now they are off to the next chapter in their lives. I like the notion of commencement rather than graduation. To commence means to begin something, to set off on a journey, to move forward and that is what our seniors are doing. So, that being said, let us pray for these young men and women as they commence upon their next steps. Let us pray for their safety. Let us pray for their sanity in college. Let us pray for their success; which will be measured by the quality of their lives rather than the amount of money they make. And, finally, let us pray that, like us, they go to church every Sunday. Let us, indeed, continue to lift them up in prayer from today onward.
