A Message from our President

Dear Alumni and friends of John Carroll,

In recent weeks, the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak has had a profound impact on countries around the world—and, increasingly, here in the United States.  Under the direction of our Governor and our Bishop, we have suspended on-site instruction at our campus. Our teachers are still actively engaged in teaching our students remotely.  I am thankful that we have the ability to do this. 

I know many of our alumni are working to abate the impact of the virus.  Thank you all for that. Know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Please continue to remember us in your prayers.  

It is at this exact moment that our faith is most needed.  May God bless you and John Carroll High forevermore.  

Father Bob Sullivan, ‘82
Bishop Robert J. Baker will celebrate the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the Priesthood on March 21, 2020.

50 Masses for 50 Years! 
Help us Celebrate Bishop Baker's Golden Jubilee this March by offering up mass for him. Our goal is to have 50 people commit to offering 50 masses for the Bishop in celebration of his 50 years of priesthood. If you would like to join us and commit to offering one of your masses this month, please email  bishopscarlet3@gmail.com. I nclude your name and the Parish where the mass will be celebrated.

" ...I enjoyed reading the CARROLLIFE. I found it not too surprising that fewer than 2% of alumni have ever given a single donation to JC. While I have donated in the past, I didn't this past year. It simply slipped my mind. In the donor section, I saw that only five (5) of my classmates donated last year.

I am offering to match up to $5,000 for all gifts generated by my class, The Class of 1966."

Prayerfully, this will remind those that simply forgot, inspire new givers, or maybe even create other class challenges. f
