In math, Pi is equivalent to 3.14, so March 14 is considered “Pi Day.“  At Guardian Angel School in Oran, it is also known as Pie Day.  Ann Whistler, math teacher, had the eighth grade students tell interesting facts about pi to all the students.  Next, the students get to go through a line and pick out a piece of pie to eat.  The pies, napkins, cups, plates, juice and forks were all brought in by the students in Whistler’s fourth-eighth grade math classes.  Everyone at school looks forward to Pi (Pie) Day each year.

Bishop Edward M. Rice recently celebrated two annual Diocesan Wedding Anniversary Celebrations. One was held in Springfield on Feb. 12 while the other was celebrated the afternoon of Feb. 19 in Cape Girardeau. These events allow couples and their families to come together to affirm and witness to the gift of marriage to the Church, communities, and society. Representing some 6,247 years of marriage, 149 couples and their families participated in these recent liturgies and receptions. The longest married couples were designated to cut the cakes. In Springfield, Vernon and Ann Cashel, celebrating 70 years, cut the cake with Bishop Rice. The honor was shared in Cape Girardeau as two couples, Bernard and Dorothy Kluesner and William and Mary Loos, both will mark 61 years of marriage in 2017. Read more
