On Wednesday, January 25, the choir of St. Michael Catholic School (SMCS) sang at a liturgy at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart with Daniel Cardinal DiNardo presiding. The choir received an invitation from the Office of Worship and the Catholic Schools Office of the Archdiocese to sing at the Essay Contest Mass – an annual event sponsored by the University of St. Thomas Office in collaboration with the Catholic Schools Office. The essay contest is open to Catholic School students in grades third through 12. The Mass traditionally leads into National Catholic Schools Week, which commemorates the benefits of Catholic education.
SMCS choir director, Janet Alcayaga said, “ We were very honored to be invited to such an important Mass. Our students were very excited and sang beautifully.”
Established in 1954, St. Michael Catholic School offers an education with focus on the doctrine and traditions celebrated by the Catholic faith. SMCS strives to educate the whole person, promoting growth and development of mind, body, and spirit, while cultivating the values of faith, conscience, scholarship, and service to students in PK3 through eighth grade.
