Dear St. John Paul II Families,

For those of you who were not here last Friday for Mass, the students were singing so beautifully to “Here I am to Worship” and I complimented them on how wonderful they sounded! I shared vulnerability with everyone as I could not readily remember the Saint who said that when you sing, you pray twice. Luckily and quickly, our StJPII community of Saints came to my rescue! Thank you to all of you for walking alongside me and our Saint community as we continue to grow in faith and knowledge.

A wonderful parent even sent me this quote from St. Augustine, “For he that singeth praise, not only praiseth, but only praiseth with gladness: he that singeth praise, not only singeth, but also loveth him of whom he singeth. In praise, there is the speaking forth of one confessing; in singing, the affection of one loving.” (St. Augustine, Commentary on Psalm 73, 1)

We are enjoying Catholic Schools Week here on campus! A special shout-out to the GRAY team who won yesterday's relay challenge during the spirited Pep Rally. Today, we welcomed prospective parents to our Open House and celebrated our 30th Birthday! The fun continues this week, read below for all the details.

In Him,
