St. Columba School celebrated the Feast Day of Saint Blaise on Friday February 3rd. Father Mowery blessed the throats of all the students in school as is the tradition in the Catholic Faith. The martyr St. Blaise is the patron saint of ailments of the throat hence the blessing of throats. A great way to end Catholic Schools Week. Here Myles DiPippa 7th grade receives his blessing from Father Mowery.
