RIVERSIDE—On May 17 Our Lady of Perpetual Help School in Riverside was highlighted as the “Riverside Pride Success Report” by Ward 3 City Councilman Mike Soubirous. The honor was in recognition of the school’s ministry to senior citizens at the Raincross Senior Living Center over the past two years. Below is a reflection on the honor and the ministry by OLPH eighth grader Evangeline Sanchez.
