Dear St. John Paul II Families,
WOW...November 1st!  Happy All Saints Day! We enjoyed a beautiful Mass today, and rejoiced with our “littlest saints” as they paraded dressed up and shared the joys that past saints continue to inspire as heroes of our church.

How wonderful it was to see many of you at Trunk or Treat, the Spaghetti Dinner and our famous 5K in honor of Lauren Lockard!  It was a fabulous weekend, and I continue to marvel at how everyone works together to make these events better and better every year. The successes are results of many; however, a huge thanks to Facilities Director Mr. Goodman, Mandy & Wendy of ECI, Rosanna Halter, and our parent volunteers for their creative "trunks"!

Many times we hear great things about our school and students, and here's another recent compliment I would love to share...during Vocations Day, our campus was blessed with many special guest speakers. This year, one of our guests was Fr. Johnson, the new President of Strake Jesuit College Preparatory. As I thanked him for coming, he said, “You send us such well-prepared young men, I had to come see where the magic happens" to which I quickly replied, “It’s God!”  Be sure to check out the Honor Roll list below of our alumni students at Strake.

To all our StJPII Saints….we are blessed here! This is a great place where God is at the heart of all that we do, and He makes everything possible as we continue to grow our Saints!

Have a blessed week,
