Santa's Secret Shop is a tradition that occurs every Christmas Season at Our Lady of Grace School. Throughout the year volunteers buy toys and gifts at discounts and then set up a "Santa Shop".  During this time, students are able to buy gifts for their families and friends.  100% of the proceeds are gifted to our sister school, Saint John Paul II in Minneapolis.  Once again we invite parishioners and families to shop. There will be baked items and a variety of other items to buy for friends and family.

OLG Pre School Timing Update

As mentioned in our last update, there is a lot of momentum around an OLG preschool, and that is exciting!  That said, finding space on our campus to meet all our needs, including the preschool is challenging.  Updating our campus master plan and securing appropriate zoning status for OLG's long-term needs are about to get underway, and those activities squeeze our preschool timing more than we would like.  Therefore, OLG leadership has decided to delay the opening of an OLG preschool beyond fall 2019.  All of the work done to date remains useful and necessary to make the OLG preschool a reality for our young families, as soon as possible. 

We are grateful for your positive energy regarding an OLG preschool, and will continue to share updates, as we have them.
