JULY 9-13  A group of High School students will be traveling from St Benedict Parish to the University of Notre Dame to participate in the Summer program VISION. ALL high school aged young people who are interested in attending are welcome. See Ms. McMillan for details. Our group will be traveling to the University July 9-13. The cost of attending is the $100.00 deposit and some earnest hours of fundraising. Please do not let the cost keep any person who is interested, from attending.
