Sr. Joellen has joined me at Our Lady of the Mountains Convent. She is the new Director of Religious Education at St. Andrew's Parish.
She held her first parent meeting on Sunday, August 10 at St. Andrew's Parish.
Saturday, August 11th is her first meeting with all her teachers and classroom helpers.
Saturday Night, we decided to attend Mass at the Mission Church of St. Andrew's Parish located in Whetstone, about 20 minutes from Sierra Vista.
It is a very tiny, tiny church located in the desert.
The driveway to get to the church. Monsoon clouds are building and did it rain as we drove home in darkness with lightning to guide our way.

Now at All Saints Catholic School, where Sister Carol is the principal, the school bell rang out on Wednesday, August 6th with 101 students - an increase of 21 students! The goal was to get 100 students for the year.
A lot of recruitment was done by parents, students and Sister Carol.
Recruiting on a very hot Saturday afternoon with Smokey the Bear to help out.
Fr. Mike, our new pastor, blessed all the classrooms to begin the new school year.

A beautiful sunset was enjoyed at our school and parish - Our Lady of the Mountains Church.
The school bell is ringing to begin a full week of school and religious education classes.
