Bienvenidos to the fifth week of the Super Spanish video series!

This week, there's also a crossword puzzle to accompany the video themed around shared words between Spanish and English. You can play the crossword in English here and in Spanish here.

We invite you to share with your friends, parish family, and anyone you think would love to learn some Spanish to join in the fun! You can share the Super Spanish webpage, which has information about the series, the videos, and upload information for participants.

UTO Spring Ingathering: May 29, 2022
We’ve all heard that money talks, but do you know what it says? It can say "Thank You" when you drop it into your Blue Boxes each day when you celebrate something you're thankful for to pay it forward. 100% of what we give to UTO is given away the following year to feeding programs, after school programs, offering medical care and more to those in need.

So, what can you give thanks for today that will bless others? Remember, the Ingathering is on May 29th, 2022. Please mail your checks to: Debbie Luke, 96 Baum Bay Dr, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948. For more information, call 252-599-6997.
