Students at St. Robert Catholic School recently welcomed a special visitor: Bishop David Walkowiak. He visited on March 11, spending time with every classroom.
The children shared about what they're studying in school, asked questions about Bishop Walkowiak’s ministry, and learned more about our Catholic faith.
