Summer Mass and Dinner
On Friday, August 3, the Lalanne program wrapped up its summer with a closing mass and dinner for new, continuing, and graduating program participants. Fr. Jim offered a commissioning prayer of blessing for all of the teachers starting and continuing their service. At the dinner, Dr. Jim Rigg, Dr. Kevin Kelly, and Susan Ferguson shared their insights about the work for which the teachers are preparing. Jacinta Mergler gave the closing remarks and shared a little about each of the eight graduating Lalanne teachers, who were joined by family and friends for this special night.
