St. Joan of Arc School Students Go Back to School!
On Monday, August 14, 2017 enthusiastic and happy families reported to the first day of the 2017/18 St. Joan of Arc School year. As every year, St. Joan’s first day of classes is a joyful one, especially now that their new campus additions are fully operational.
Save the Creche! Save the Menorah!
The City of Boca Raton is in the process of forbidding citizen sponsored religious displays or symbols to be placed in Sanborn Park (a free speech zone by City ordinance). Our annual Creche blessing ceremony is a wonderful example of civic and ecumenical cooperation. The ordinance in question is Ordinance 5397 and it can be read or downloaded from the City website. It is important that committed citizens make our thoughts known so that public policy is not enacted out of fear of atheism or the negative publicity initiated by atheism and its Satanic display last Christmas. Please make time to call the Mayor’s Office, City Council members and any other persons of influence in City Hall. Most importantly, try to attend the public hearing on this very negative ordinance and express your thoughts about it.
PLEASE ATTEND THIS PUBLIC HEARING
PUBLIC HEARING: ORDINANCE 5397
