Yesterday, NFA students and staff attended a moving prayer service in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. They were reminded through prayer and song of his legacy and the hope that inspired his philosophy as well as the principles of Catholic social teachings.

Take a minute of your day to reflect on this beautiful video.

The Norwood-Fontbonne community mourns the passing of Mrs. Marilyn Miller who went home to God on January 5. Marilyn was a beloved teacher at NFA for over 25 years starting in 1972 and spending most of her time teaching 4th and 5th grades. She is remembered fondly by her NFA colleagues and is survived by her husband Jesse Miller, 2 daughters--Lorie and Linda, and a son alumnus James Miller '80. May God welcome her to her heavenly home and surround her family with comfort in the days ahead. Memorial donations in lieu of flowers are being directed to NFA.
