New playground to be blessed by the Bishop!

We are excited to have Bishop Conley bless Villa Marie and our new playground in a celebration prior to the Marian Mass on September 11th.

At 6 pm, Villa Marie will host a celebration where the Bishop Conley will bless the school and playground, there will be a playground ribbon cutting, and donors will be recognized and thanked in the unveiling of our recognition benches donated by TMCO. Staff and students will provide tours of the school, and the Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa have donated cookies for the event.  There will also be a gift for the children that attend.  The Marian Mass will follow the celebration and will begin at 7:00 pm. We have a lot to be thankful for and what a perfect way to end the evening!
