At the all school Mass on Monday, May 14, we will acknowledge the contributions of a former school family with the presentation of the In Nomine Meo Award, named in recognition of Margaret and Harold Moser '28.   During their lives, they had a tremendous impact on the Naperville community and the Diocese of Joliet. Their love of Saints Peter & Paul School was equally as strong. The generous bequest they left our school in 2003 created a legacy of financial support that will continue to benefit our school for many decades to come.
In recognition of the Harold and Margaret's love of Catholic
Last year's In Nomine Meo inductees,
Dr. Nowell & Kathy Blecha
education, and our school in particular, our Advancement Board in 2006 created the IN NOMINE MEO award,Latin for IN MY NAME. Although neither Harold nor Margaret had the time or the physical energy to get actively involved in our school, they helped the best way they could. They loved our school, believed in our mission, were interested in helping young families who struggled with tuition and were well aware of the financial sacrifices teachers had to make to work in a Catholic school.

And our school is certainly the better for it.

Most people, however, aid our school by volunteering their time and talents. They serve on boards, chair fundraisers, coach a sport, are active as room mothers, copy moms, greeters, field trip chaperones, and a host of other things.
Upon the graduation of their last child, these people have left a footprint that has made Saints Peter & Paul a better school than when their first child entered kindergarten.

These are the types of couples who are recognized with this award.

When our school was founded in 1853.....

......people wouldn't travel to Chicago to see the Chicago River dyed green for St. Patrick's Day as that custom didn't begin until 1962.
