Casa Maria congratulated the Class of 2014 by hosting a graduation-themed prayer dinner. Aspirant Justin baked a cross cake topped with graduate figures in honor of the five St. Mary’s seniors in attendance. Graduation candy caps on sticks were also served.

Other St. Mary’s students enjoyed taking a study break to eat finals food, such as alphabet cookies. Groups had to work together on a funny final exam game to earn their letter grades. The group who had the most answers correct on their “trivia tests” got an A.

Lastly, Justin honored his sister Stephanie with a birthday cake; this week, she turned 21! Happy birthday to her…and happy summer to all!
