Promise Made - Promise Kept
Mr. Morisco made a promise to the student body of Saint Columba School. The promise; if the students reached the school goal for the Race for Education funds he would allow the 8th grade to paint his beloved hair. Well, our students came through and raised enough money to paint the principal's hair. So what color will his hair be painted? There was a poll put out to the students and the winning hair color was "Rainbow". So, Mr. Morisco covered his face and clothes and let his hair meet spray cans of multi-colored fun.

Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, Oh God, a guiding star above me. Be a smooth path below me, a kindly shepherd behind me today, tonight and for ever. Alone with none but you, my God I journey on my way; what need I fear when you are near, O Lord of night and day? More secure am I within your hand than if a multitude did round me stand.
