Every year, at the end of the year, St. Mary's and St. Matthew's 4th graders walk to the historical sites of Bellevue. That happened again this year on May 19th. Students along with a few parents and teachers first walked to the old bank/courthouse on East Mission Street then over to the log cabin, the old Presbyterian Church and the Bellevue Cemetery where they prayed over the grave of an unknown immigrant child. After visiting Big Elk's grave and others of historical significance to Bellevue, they walked to Swine Dining where Mr. Feagan treated everyone to lunch in honor of his wife's retirement. After lunch they all walked back up Mission Street to the Columban Fathers where Frans Lang met them. She discussed the history of the Columban Fathers and then let them tour the many artifacts on display before taking them to the chapel where students saw the many individual altars where priests can offer daily Mass. Once back at school, the students had recess, which included pulling Mrs. Feagan on their newly acquired Mormon like handcart! For more photos click here.
