OUR NEW ARCHBISHOP HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED!
On Holy Thursday, March 24, Pope Francis formally named Archbishop Bernard A. Hebda as the new leader of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
Archbishop-Designate Hebda has been serving as Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese since June 15, 2015. During that time, he has also been serving the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey, as Coadjutor Archbishop, and was scheduled to replace Archbishop John J. Myers when he is expected to retire in July.
The son of Bernard and the late Helen Clark Hebda, the Archbishop-Designate Hebda was born on September 3, 1959 in Pittsburgh, PA. He was ordained to the priesthood on July 1, 1989 in St. Paul Cathedral in Pittsburgh. His Episcopal ordination took place on December 1, 2009.
In addition to serving the Archdioceses of Newark and Saint Paul and Minneapolis, he was Bishop of the Diocese of Gaylord, Michigan and has served at the Vatican and in parishes in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Archbishop-Designate Hebda’s Installation Mass is scheduled for 2 p.m., Friday, May 13, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, at the Cathedral of Saint Paul.

Put More “T” in STREM
Presentation of Mary School is committed to the expanded use of technology in its curriculum. Funds from Steaks for Good will assist this continued effort beyond our current 1-to-1 iPads for all middle school students, Smart Board use in classrooms, expanded computer lab environment, and curriculum planning such as the “flipped classroom”. Budgets have expanded to support this priority effort but we still need more assistance to put more “T” in our STREM focus (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, and Math). Your purchases of Omaha Steaks will support this important priority!
