This Saturday we joined our sister schools from around the diocese at The 2018 Beacon of Hope Ball at the Peter D. Kiernan Plaza in Albany. The proceeds from the Ball benefit The Beacon of Hope Scholarship Fund which provides tuition assistance for families and children in need who wish to receive a Catholic education in our Diocesan Catholic Schools.
We were very proud to honor Conrad and Lorraine DeCuyper with the Beacon of Hope Community Spirit Award at the Ball. Mr. and Mrs. DeCuyper are long-time parishioners, who have been supporting St. Madeleine Sophie School for over 35 years. First enrolling their five children in our school then rolling up their sleeves in a variety of roles to ensure our school and parish continues to thrive. Mr. DeCuyper is always asking "What do you need?" and then he finds a way to help us, especially in the needs of our buildings. We are blessed to have these Guardian Angels who are always sharing their expertise and looking out for the well being of our School and Parish Family! Our parish school thrives for so many reasons, but most especially because of the tremendous support we receive from so many generous people! Thank you to everyone who enables us to provide a community of faith for our students to learn in!
