On Tuesday, March 2nd, Bishop Peter Christensen celebrated a blessing Mass in the new chapel at St. John Bosco Academy.  The Mass signaled the completion of the new wing which also includes three classrooms and an enlarged daycare space.  Concelebrating with Bishop Christensen were Fr. Paul Wander of Cottonwood and Fr. Anthony Amadi of Grangeville.  Deacon Ryan Uhlenkott assisted.  Tours of the addition and a reception followed the Mass.  The students, staff and board of St. John Bosco Academy thank all those who donated their time, talent, or treasure which allowed us to celebrate the blessing of our new chapel.
