Second Sunday of Advent - December 13, 2020
God, our faithful Lord, you accomplish your will in all things. We await the fulfillment of your promises. We long for the fullness of your kingdom, and that longing is our ceaseless prayer. Until the advent of that glorious day, lift up our hearts in unwavering joy.
Show us the light that has already come into our world, so that we may give you thanks in all that we do. Keep us holy and blameless as we undertake works of justice and promote peace, so that others may see and hear and know your goodness, and be drawn to your light. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. READ MORE
Dear Parishioners:
Happy Gaudete Sunday. “gau-dé-te: rejoice! (Latin) imperative form”
The Third Sunday of Advent is traditionally called “Gaudete Sunday” because of the liturgy’s “entrance antiphon” which quotes St. Paul’s Letter to the Philippians: “Rejoice in the Lord always.; again, I say rejoice. Indeed, the Lord is near.” (Philippians 4:4-5). READ FR. PHIL'S FULL MESSAGE

A Message from the School Principal, Mrs. Amy Nelson
Students in PreK through 8th grade enjoyed making Christmas tree ornaments that were showcased during the Plymouth Holiday Parade on the St. John the Baptist School float. Now the ornaments are proudly displayed on a Christmas tree near the office. This tree is a reminder to the our whole school family that we are all blessed with many gifts and talents to share with one another. In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, students and staff are donating items for the Sheboygan County Food Pantry. What a wonderful way to give back to the community for those less fortunate!

Technology means more than just learning computing skills, it is part of every aspect of our lives today and necessary for 21st Century learning. Many of the interactive boards in the classrooms are starting to show their age. Thank you to those that have recently donated to the school’s technology fund. These monetary donations will assist the school in continuing to ensure that our students have the necessary tools needed to succeed now and in their futures. These tools also enhance learning for our faith formation students.
