Dear St. John Paul II Families,

Once again, our community has so many things to be grateful for! What a remarkable turn-out we had on Sunday for our last football game. Our players and cheerleaders worked very hard!  It was so special to see our many families come together and enjoy the afternoon cheering on our SAINT team.

This Friday, October 7th, will be our second month to celebrate the First Friday devotion; remember to have your children mark-off October on their "Passport to Heaven" cards as they grow in holiness.  All are welcome to join us in celebrating Mass this Friday at school too. Be sure to read the feature below in "Forming Families of Disciples".  Last week, our students gathered in their Saint Families to learn about the 12 promises received by those who participate in the First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart. We are thankful for the 8th graders for sharing this devotion with our younger students.

Lastly, it is with great gratitude that our 8th graders have an opportunity to experience Washington D.C. They are gone this week, and so far, pictures show them having a wonderful time!  Please keep them in your prayers.
