Welcome to 8th Grade – GSC Class of 2017


The month of March and Lent begin together.  Students in the 8th grade will attend the 8 AM Mass every Monday during the season of Lent.  Every Friday during Lent, we will take part in the Stations of the Cross at 1:30 PM in church.

Come visit GSC and learn about the great things at our school.  Contact Mrs. Wilkes in our Advancement Office to arrange for a tour.  Email or call 215-886-0126

Aid for Friends

Our GSC students are working on a Lenten Project.  We will be making breakfast bags during the last week of March.  The 8th grade students are asked to bring in a pack of fruit cups (boys) and a pack of juice boxes (girls).   Thank you for contributing these products.
