Dear St. John Paul II Families,

Happy Tuesday!  I want to thank you all for taking the time to read Saints Weekly.  It is very informative and allows us the opportunity to communicate and work in partnership with you.  Now entering our second full week of school, the students, families, and staff are becoming well-adjusted to being back in session and enjoying the new year as we are “Forming Families of Disciples”.  This Friday, September 2nd, will be the First Friday of the month that we will gather together as a community to celebrate Mass.  This year as we continue to journey towards becoming disciples of Christ, we will prioritize the Mass by including First Fridays of the month.  The tradition of the First Friday Devotion is to attend Mass nine consecutive First Fridays and receive Holy Communion in order to receive special graces.  I hope that you will be able to join us each month as we celebrate these special Masses and visit with your children as they learn more about our Catholic traditions.  

Our Saint family has had a great start to this academic year, and we are already in need of some rest and relaxation.  Remember to put your family first this weekend and enjoy some extra quality family time together!  Don’t forget to save the date for our Parent Nights next Wednesday and Thursday!  See you there!

In Him we trust,
