February 4, 2016 -- MCS rallied at the Utah State Capitol rotunda! In alignment with Pope Francis's encyclical—Laudato Si— and lead by Principal Baillie and Mr. Knibbe, over 300 MCS students marched from campus to the Capitol Building to deliver a message that change needs to happen at a legislative level to drastically improve air quality in Utah.
The Madeleine Choir School, a Catholic school in the Diocese of Salt Lake City, will be holding a clean air rally on Thursday, February 4th from 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. in the Capitol Rotunda. This is the second year students from the Choir School have aired their concerns about the excess smog in the Salt Lake Valley to our legislative representatives.
The Madeleine Choir School hosts a series of "Drop-In" tours throughout each school year.

We are now in the final days of preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of the Lord. In these last seven days before Christmas, the church’s liturgy intensifies with prayers acknowledging our troubled world’s need for peace and freedom from all darkness and evil. The difficulties that continue for refugees, immigrants and those who struggle with disease or mental infirmity, the increasingly divisive rhetoric on religion and race, the senseless slaughter of innocent young people in Dunblane, Sandy Hook and Peshawar, and the darkness that sometimes clouds our own hearts and minds with less than noble thoughts, words and actions all compel us to recognize the need for new direction, a restored humanity, and, in fact, a Savior. O Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice: come, shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death. (Click photo or headline to continue reading)...
