(3/22) Blood Drive Success!!!  

Thanks to the hard work of our National Honor Society members and the generosity of our St. Patrick Parish community, our final Red Cross blood drive for the year was a great success.  We exceeded our goal of 43 units of blood by two units, collecting a total of 45 units.  Over the past school year we collected a grand total of 154 units of blood.  Each unit of blood has the potential to save up to three lives.  This fact is especially significant during this Lenten season, as we prepare for Easter by practicing acts of charity, because over the course of this school year, we collectively touched the lives of 463 people with compassion and healing in Jesus' name!  Thank you!
