Junior Ring Ceremony at Xavier
Last Thursday night, my husband and I attended the Junior Ring Ceremony at Xavier. Our son Andrew and 143 of his classmates were decked out in their blue blazers, definitely dressed to impress. Following a beautiful mass, each name was called and the boys walked across the stage to receive their ring from Bishop Michael Cote. At the start of the ceremony, they were instructed to pose for a picture with the Bishop.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow
On January 2oth, Connecticut schools, public and private, banded together to help the children of Haiti.
From Governor Rell's web site:
“Thousands of Haitian children are suffering because of the devastating earthquake. Some have lost one or both parents. Many have had their homes and schools destroyed and face an uncertain and terrifying future. Schoolchildren in Connecticut have an opportunity to make a difference by supporting efforts that will help rebuild schools and restore hope for the Haitian children. If we can provide some measure of comfort during this terrifying time in their young lives, we should,” Governor Rell said. “They desperately need our help more than ever,” Governor Rell said. “Through their tears and cries, they have to know that there is hope, that the world cares.”
Keigwin Middle School Hearts for Haiti and Xavier Haiti Awareness Night are wonderful examples of children helping children. Connecticut children had already raised well over $50,000 for Haiti.
Do you read the comments people leave on MiddletownPress.com? Why are people so venomous... is it so painful to act civil, so difficult to band together?
I think before you are going to leave a nasty comment, turn on Ole IZ and listen to his version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Seriously....
