CONGRATULATIONS WINTERGUARD - Congratulations to our GR Catholic WinterGuard for placing fourth in Scholastic Regional A competition this weekend at the Hudsonville Invitational!  We're very proud of our kids as they represented both the Catholic Central and West Catholic programs. In two weeks the guard will be competing at the Jenison Invitational. Be sure to congratulate our talented ladies and wish them luck! 

VOLUNTEER NEEDED - Enjoy running? And would you also enjoy a volunteer activity that involves running? San Juan Diego Academy is looking for a volunteer for the Total Trek Quest program this Spring at the school. TTQ is a program for 3rd to 5th grade boys that teaches them to make positive life choices through running, culminating in a competitive 5K at the end of the practices. A volunteer is sought for the Tuesday afternoon practices, which run from 3:40 to 5:10 p.m., beginning March 12 and ending on May 14. (There are no practices during Spring break.) All you would need to do is run with the boys and encourage them to keep moving toward their goal. Running times range from 20 minutes to 40 minutes. There will be two trained coaches present who will be responsible for actually running practices. If you are interested, or might have questions, please contact Tom Sarb at Thank you.

SENIOR YARD SIGNS - Celebrate your graduation and show your Cougar Pride! Order your double sided yard signs, complete with H-stake for proud parents, grandparents, and other family members! Signs are also a great way to mark open house locations! Cost is $35 each and all proceeds will go to the Senior All Night Party preparations. Orders are due by March 15, 2024. Please see this FLYER for additional information and how to order. 

SANP INFO - We are excited to celebrate our Seniors at the Senior All Night Party held after graduation! Plans have been made and we look forward to a memorable night! Our two goals for the event are to give ALL of the graduates a fun evening to celebrate together one last time and to keep everyone safe. With just over 3 months until Graduation, the SANP committee needs your help with a final push in registrations.

Catholic Central has had graduates receive this award.  To qualify, caddies must meet the requirements of having a strong caddie record, excellent academics, demonstrated financial need and outstanding character.  To learn more, visit: Questions?  Sign up for the March 5 Focus session hosted by Mr.Passinault.

BLESSING OF THE DAY - May you be blessed when you are forced into the darkness of the unknown, when answers elude you and you are paralyzed by anticipation or fear. At those times may you hear yourself being called into the mystery of God. May you entrust yourself into the hands of mystery and know that you are not alone or unprotected but loved and cared for. May the God of Mystery bless you. --Maxine Shonk, OP
