Dec 4, Middle School Night event in the Marin IJ.was so touched by the generosity of our students in response to the devastation the Philippine earthquake inflected upon his hometown of Bohol. Engaging in a game of Money Olympics, $1650.00 was raised by all the classes, which will be sent to Father Al’s home parish and school. He has asked us to continue holding the Philippines in our prayers as they continue to be challenged with natural disasters.
