Dear St. John Paul II Families,

As always, we have a lot going on here on campus and beyond! Our 5th graders are enjoying some glorious weather at Camp Allen but I'm looking forward to their return tomorrow. I'm also excited to welcome our Grandparents and Special Friends this Friday. Be sure to visit the Book Fair if you haven't already!

Finally, I would like to express how truly blessed we were as a community to host a Holy Relic of St. John Paul II on campus last week. What a beautiful experience for our students, staff, and parents to be so very close in both presence and spirit to our beloved Patron Saint. I was delighted to hear alumna Alexia Zaldivar along with her sisters of the Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary proclaim to the students that "every choice we make makes a difference and to not be afraid to open wide the doors of Christ." My prayer is that as we enter this season of gratitude we choose to help others and give thanks to our Lord for all the blessings He provides us each and every day. May you, and your family, have a wonderful Thanksgiving break next week!

In Him we trust,
