Montini Catholic students celebrated their first Mass of the new school year on Friday, August 28th. This year's opening Mass did look a little different, however, with some members of the student body able to celebrate socially distanced, in person, and all others watching virtually in the classrooms and at home. The intentions of the unique gathering, however, didn't stray from the Bronco tradition of reflecting on the new school year ahead with a vision of hope for the future.
Rev. Matthew Nathan from St. Alexis Parish in Bensenville was honored to celebrate the Mass with the students.
"We thank you all for being here today," said Principal Beirne in his address to students after the Mass. "Of course we wish we were able to be all together, but we can still make the most of it." Principal Beirne welcomed the newest Broncos from the Class of 2024 as well as new teachers and students on what was the 10th day of classes this fall.
