After the last Mass of the 2015-16 school year, the faculty and student body of St. Catherine of Siena School in Metairie paid tribute to the school’s departing principal, Frances Dee Tarantino.

Each grade level gave a farewell gift, and the entire school gave her a cross with each student’s fingerprint on it. On behalf of the parents, Annie Matthews expressed gratitude for Tarantino’s service to the St. Catherine of Siena School community. The tribute ended with everyone raising their hands in prayer for Tarantino’s next journey.
