A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

Cathedral hosts its first Red Cross Blood Drive tomorrow (Wed.).  For the first time, we are really short of the ideal number of donors.  If you are able to donate, I encourage you to either just show up (Center Gym) during the school day, or email Darcy Frank about an appointment time: dfrank@cathedralcrusaders.org.

A reminder from our Campus Ministers about our school food drive going on this week.  We only have until Friday, so any food you could send in would be greatly appreciated. It is extremely important that we support our community. (This is such an easy way to make a difference during this holiday season.  When you stop at the grocery store this week, please throw a few extra items in your cart for our food drive. Our Campus Ministers will haul it all to Catholic Charities so that it can be given out to needy families right away.  If you would like to donate perishable items like potatoes, fruit, turkeys, etc., you may bring those items in on Thursday. - L.G)

The Nordic Ski Team is selling beautiful poinsettias from St. Cloud Floral.  Red, white, pink, burgandy for $15 and Blue w/Sparkles in memory of Ellie Sovada for $20.  Contact any Nordic Skier or email Sue Sovada with your order: rsonpark@gmail.com.  Sale ends Friday, Nov. 20.  Delivery/pick up on Wednesday Dec. 2 from 10 am - 5:30 pm, Cathedral North Gym.  All money collected benefits the CHS/Sartell Nordic Ski Team.

We have kicked off our annual Magazine Sale to benefit athletics and activities here at Cathedral. Funds raised will help purchase equipment, uniforms. and general supplies - and help pay for transportation costs. Online orders are delivered directly!  They make great gifts - and there are also over 1,500 digital products/titles available. 

Please forward this link to your friends and family and ask them to help. It really is that easy!


If you are new to Cathedral: we have an annual Grandparents' Day the day before Thanksgiving (Nov. 25, this year).  It is one of the highlights of the whole school year.  Please let us know if you have grandparents that we should invite.  If they have already attended, they will automatically receive an invitation.  Send names and address to Rose in the Main Office, either rmarsyla@cathedralcrusaders.org or 320-251-3421 - or you can register them online through the front page of our website.
