We are happy to report that this year's Mother's Day Brunch - an annual fundraiser organized by the Parents Association - was a success. When the sums were tallied up, the event raised $2,827.00, which is some $500 more than last year.

Our volunteers transformed the Great Hall into an elegant setting for a wonderfully prepared banquet meal, serving mothers and families after both the early and later Liturgy in the Cathedral (though families also came after services in a number of other parishes). Service, musical entertainment and hosting were provided by St. John's students, parents and teachers; and a silent auction provided the opportunity to win everything from kitchen cookware to baseball tickets.

We are very grateful to all our helpers and volunteers, and to all the families who came and contributed and made the day a success!
