In Loving Memory of Maria Tollefson
Our St. Didacus family is deeply saddened to inform you that Maria Tollefson passed away in her sleep on the morning of November 2. We are relieved that her passing was peaceful, painless, and that she was with family. We take comfort that she is now in God's gentle and loving care.
Please continue to keep her and her family
in your thoughts and prayers.
St. Didacus Parish School shares the common mission of Catholic education to proclaim the message of Jesus, to create Christian community, to worship God, and to serve one another and the world. Our school supports and enhances the parents' role as the primary educators of their children.
We engage students from all cultural backgrounds in a developmental curriculum promoting spiritual growth, academic excellence, and social responsibility. The school identifies its wider community as faculty and staff, students, families, parish interested outside individuals and groups, neighbors and alumni. Within this dynamic, the young learner develops as a whole child, grounded in God's love, preparing to shape his/her life pattern of excellence, morality, service and commitment.
