A new year, a new school

Quinn Shannon, a second-grader at Community of Saints Regional Catholic School in West St. Paul and a member of Holy Trinity parish in South St. Paul, asked Archbishop John Nienstedt a question during the archbishop’s visit to the school Sept. 5. Archbishop Nienstedt celebrated Mass with the students and then visited each classroom asking, “Do you have any questions for me?” He was asked everything from, “How long have you been the archbishop?” to “What is that hat you wear during Mass?” and “What do those guys [the Knights of Columbus] do with their swords; are they sharp?”
The new school has 237 students in grades kindergarten to eight and 32 preschoolers. It is a cooperative effort bringing together kids from St. John Vianney in South St. Paul, St. Matthew and Our Lady of Guadalupe parishes in St. Paul and St. Michael in West St. Paul, as well as 25 students from other area parishes.
