The Message Ministry Supplement - No. 8 - February 2024

This supplement to the digital edition of The Message appears monthly and features news and information about ministries across the Diocese of Evansville, and the events they are sponsoring.

Catholic Schools across the diocese hosted Come and See open house-style events Feb. 1 as part of Catholic Schools Week so prospective students and their parents or guardians could visit to learn more about the school. As part of its Feb. 1 Come and See event, Annunciation School’s Holy Spirit Campus held a dance for students in kindergarten through second grade. Posing for a picture in front of the photo opportunity that educators set up are Fara, left, Ariana Furr, Laniyah Bailey and Lila Norman. The Message photo by Megan Erbacher
