Welcome Back Students!

In one of the biggest “Welcome Back to School” celebrations Our Lady of Peace Parish School in Wheeling has ever had, Father Dennis R. Schuelkens, Jr., gives students a slap of five as he runs along the railing where they were gathered at the Ohio County Airport. The kids were treated to a helicopter landing from which Father Schuelkens, the school’s pastor, and diocesan schools Superintendent Vincent de Paul Schmidt emerged to lead them in a back to school celebration. Each student received a pair of neon sunglasses for the occasion. See back to school coverage on Page 6.
