New Virtue of the Month: Compassion

As you may recall, each month Saint James K – 8 students are studying a different virtue as part of their religion classes. Today during the Rosary, Mrs. Zorger recognized our students who best exemplified the virtue of Forgiveness during the month of March (picture below) and introduced the next virtue our students will study: Compassion.
