TAG DAY FOR BEADS OF COURAGE

Last year many students at SVMS participated in the Palermo Heart to Heart Beads of Courage Program. We saw how a simple bead went a long way to encourage and honor a child’s fight for life when Sister Noreen received a call from a young patient, Amy, who was undergoing treatment in Minnesota. Amy received her bead and a card from an SVMS student named Nick. Amy was so appreciative knowing that she was being prayed for by Nick. Amy looked up SVMS on the web for our number to let us know how much this meant to her as she was facing another treatment. Beads of Courage helps support children facing major surgeries, difficult procedures and long hospital stays away from the comfort of home and their loved ones. To continue our support for the Beads of Courage program a tag day will be held tomorrow, Friday, May 4th. Donations will be accepted from all who choose to participate with a Free Will Donation, min. of $1.00 donation per student.    Wear colorful, bright colors!
