Bishop Visits Saint Olaf

It was such an honor to have Bishop Oscar Solis celebrate Mass at Saint Olaf. He reminded us that in order to be Holy and Saintly, we should Pray, Sacrifice and Do Good to Others especially during this Lenten Season. We couldn't have agreed more when the Bishop mentioned that we have a school full of Saints. In addition to celebrating Mass with us, Bishop Solis, took time out of his busy schedule to visit with our students. It is always so special to see our students interact with Bishop Solis.

Saint Patrick's Day Festivities and Parade

A HUGE shout out to all the families that joined us to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day at the annual Hibernian Society Parade in Salt Lake City! Our beautiful float, the Viking Ship, won first prize in the school category! Having all the families both on the float or walking alongside it made for a great community event and we are so glad to be doing things together again!
Thank you to Tim Fowers, a local bagpipe musician, who volunteers his talents in local schools. He played both large and small pipes for the students and visited every classroom. Combined with the Leprechaun visits in PreK and Kinder, and many other shenanigans, Saint Patrick's Day was enjoyed by all!

Read Across America Week, a HUGE Success!

What does a dinosaur, Saint Francis of Assisi, a cartoonist, a stubborn donkey, the desert of souls, God’s Storyteller, and a champion all have in common? Ask any Saint Olaf student, and they will excitedly share that those are all things that were a part of our Read Across America Week Festivities. Did you know that we had an author or two visit with our students? And by author or two, we mean 4 Catholic Authors with one still to come, one very local Utah author, and 3 nationally known-award winning authors!

Reminder that today is Formal Uniform Day and we will have Mass at 9:30 am.

In light of the recent events in Ukraine and the crisis unfolding there, we feel blessed to have a connection through Mrs. Braukmann that will allow our community to donate funds to a Catholic Ministry working in Ukraine. Combined with Pope Francis' call to prayer and fasting for today, Ash Wednesday there are several ways we can each serve.
