When Msgr. Kevin O’Neill, canonical administrator for Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School, welcomed students back to school in September, he presented them with a challenge. During the 2012-13 school year, he asked the students to come up with innovative ways to raise money to support the missions in Nicaragua.
On Thursday, June 13, the students joined Msgr. O’Neill at Queen of Martyrs Church on George Urban Boulevard to present a check for $3,000 to Ann Marie Zon, who was on hand as a representative of the Nicaragua missions. The money was raised through a wide variety of efforts, from classroom fundraisers tied into spelling and math activities, to walks and baked good sales.
