Bishop Celebrates Opening Mass


The Opening Mass of the 2017-18 school year was held Thursday, Sept. 14, at Saint Bernard School.

Junior Andrew Lemire played his violin as guests entered the lobby to attend the Mass celebrated by the Most Rev. Michael R. Cote, Bishop of Norwich. 

During his homily, the Bishop offered his blessings to students and teachers for a pleasant and successful year ahead.

β€œI also hope that the academic exercise will also help you to recognize the gifts and the talents that God has given you, and that you will work hard to develop those gifts to your fullest potential,” he said. β€œIn doing so, you also give glory to Almighty God.”

In closing, Bishop Cote awarded students an extra day off of school, to be determined by Headmaster Don Macrino.
