Thank you to everyone who attended our Eighth Annual First Words of Hope Luncheon, our biggest yet!

A special shout-out to the amazing table captains and volunteers who worked so hard to make this event possible. We are so blessed by all of your support and generosity.

SPECIAL OLYMPICS
This year’s spring Special Olympics has come and gone, and we are so proud of all of the St. Gerard students who participated! The Grotto 1 kids had a blast in the Olympic Village’s game booths, while our Grotto 2 students ran, threw and jumped their way through the many events offered, winning five gold medals and one silver medal in total. Check out the article from WLOS about the Special Olympics of Henderson County.
