“O Come to Our Senior Prom”
By: Betty Martin

O Come to our Senior Prom

Remember those good old days,

The golden age of Hollywood

Will ever more be praised.

O come to our Senior Prom,

Trot out your dancing shoes,

Dust off your favorite tunes,

Remember the tuneful blues.

O come to our Senior Prom,

Just linger a little while

As we honor our treasured past

And seal it with a smile.


“The elderly are meant to be part of the social scene,
they are a part of God’s plan for the world, 
with their mission to fulfill,
their unique contribution to make.”

Saint John Paul II

Santa Teresita…Where Every Life Matters
