It was a warm windy Sunday for commencement exercises at Thomas More Prep-Marian. The class of 2013 heard from former instructor Fr. Fred Gatschet. He told the class that their faith would be tested in the years ahead and probably sooner than they expected. (click on the photos above for a closer look)
