Give the Gift of the Mass
We are abundantly blessed to have the holy sacrifice of the Mass offered daily in the St. Francis De Sales Chapel at 7:30 am. If you are interested in celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or special occasion by giving the Gift of the Mass through a Mass Intention,
Thought from St. Francis de Sales
"God does not measure our perfection by the many things we do for Him, but by how we do them."
Seniors do NOT need to order (the graduation fee covers the yearbook.)

Bishop Ireton will participate in the national initiative The Hour of Code the week of December 9-13. The goal is to offer "a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify 'code' and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator." Students will spend one hour "coding" in their math classes over the course of the week. Given the fact that by 2020 there will be millions of computer programing jobs available, but no Americans qualified to fill them, makes this a highly relevant experience. As Steve Jobs puts it, "Everyone in this country should learn how to program a computer .....Because it teaches you how to think." Computational thinking skills nurture the skill set in dozens of other fields as well including, engineering, medicine, the social sciences, and architecture. This is sure to give BI students a taste of real world skills in a fun and engaging way.
