8th Grade students thank their parents for “working at the Car Wash” and working behind the scenes to make the Car Wash so successful!  We also thank our families, GSC Families, Queen of Peace Parishioners and Friends of GSC for supporting us.  Thank you for getting your car washed at Good Shepherd!
