Stettler’s Grade 9 Catholic school students hold farewell

Choose your friends carefully: Father Merik

“Show me your friends and I will show you who you are.”

Choose your friends carefully, Father Merik cautioned the Grade 9 Christ-King Catholic School (CKCS) class during their farewell ceremony at Christ-King Catholic Church on June 8.

“Get on the right path with the right people.”

During the farewell ceremony Kaylee Bogner gave the first reading, Colton Payne gave the responsorial Psalm and Brandy Kennedy gave the prayers of the faithful.

The dinner program included the valedictorian speech by Madison Swaren and Brody Nichols, the parent tribute by Hannah Canlas, student tribute by parents Phil and Julie Jarmin, teacher tribute by Jesse Jarmin and a student tribute by teacher MTK.
