Students from The Madeleine Choir School will perform "Noyes Fludde" this Friday, April 29, and Sunday, May 1, in partnership with Tyler Oliphant, Aubrey Adams-McMillan and Michael Aiello who will sing the adult roles.
The last time the Choir School presented "Noye's Fludde," in 2006, all students from the school participated. Enrollment is bigger now, so only those in grades 4 through 8 — 170 in all — will sing, play in the orchestra or keep the show moving as "stage ninjas." Older students will play Noah's sons and their wives, as well as the eight "gossips" who try to persuade Mrs. Noye not to board the ark; 110 will portray animals.
The Madeleine Choir School hosts a series of "Drop-In" tours throughout each school year. These tours are designed to give prospective parents an opportunity to see the daily workings of the Choir School in session. No appointment is necessary during these "Drop-in" Tour times. Please "Drop-In" to see our Student Learning Expectations (SLE) at work in each of our classrooms.

With the presidential election approaching there is much talk about making America great again. On 3 March we celebrate the second American born woman to be named a saint: St. Katharine Drexel. Katharine Drexel was born into immense family wealth, and her family regularly engaged in charitable efforts. But it was a visit to Pope Leo XIII and her request that the Pope send missionaries to assist with the Native American missions in New Mexico and Arizona that was to change her life: the Pope responded by asking her to become that missionary. Deeply moved, Katharine entered religious life to the shock of the social elite of Philadelphia, eventually establishing a new religious order known as the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament whose work was to focus on African American and Native American young people.

With broken hearts we share news of the death of alumnus Ben Khan (MCS Class of 2009). Ben was a wonderful student and worked as a counselor at the summer camp for many of his high school years. Ben was a very kind and gentle soul. In your kindness please remember Ben in your thoughts and prayers, his brother Alex (MCS Class of 2006) and his parents Farrukh and Pam. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday 28 March at 10:00 AM in the Cathedral Church. The Choir School's older students will offer the Rosary for Ben in the Cathedral today (Thursday) at 11:30 AM. All are welcome.
Eternal rest grant unto Ben, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
