As an alum, a past parent, current parent, grandparent, or friend of St. Paul, we thank you for being a part of our vision "to be a truly great Catholic high school". Here's St. Paul news you can use - delivered to you once a month during the school year. Enjoy!
Faith Feature
This Thursday, January 23rd, close to 160 St. Paul students, faculty and staff will travel to this year's March for Life in Washington D.C.

When they arrive participants will attend a Vigil Mass at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception where the Most Reverend Joseph Naumann, Archbishop of Kansas City, KS, and Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities will be the principal celebrant.

The next morning the group will attend Mass at the hotel with Archbishop Leonard P. Blair and will hear from Dr. Monique Ruberu, Ob/Gyn. Participants will then head to the Washington Mall listening to prominent pro-life speakers before marching to the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court.
 
The Vigil Mass for Life at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception (starting at 5:30pm on Thursday, January 23) and the speakers at the March for Life (starting at noon on Friday, January 24), will be available through live coverage at https://www.ewtn.com/prolife/ or through Facebook http://facebook.com/marchforlife/ .
Kindness Campaign
St. Paul's Kindness Campaign is student-led features submissions of kind acts they see here at St. Paul on a daily basis. We will feature one each month, but be assured there are many acts of kindness in the halls, classrooms and offices here at SP.

This month, swim team captain Miranda Grustas '20 asked administration if the weekly Thursday morning chapel Mass could be said in memory of swim coach Meegan Martin who passed away in late December. Many students (swim team and others) attended to remember and honor beloved Coach Meegan Martin.

Congratulations to St. Paul graduate Steve Pikiell '86. He has been the Rutgers men's head basketball coach for four seasons now and the Scarlet Knights were just ranked No. 24 by The Associated Press on Monday. It's their first time in the poll since they were No. 18 in the final rankings of the 1978-79 season.

Academics
The project in History class was... using the MineCraft program, construct a Gothic Cathedral focusing on notable features of their Cathedral when presenting their finished product. The Cathedral had to be from the 1100’s to 1600’s. Only the facade was necessary but the pictures I have are from two students who went way beyond expectations!
The project in Spanish 2 class was... build your dream house and present, in Spanish, to the class. most students chose to use MineCraft and did an amazing job. Each student had to create all of the rooms, garden, garages, pool, and then label house rooms, items, and accessories by using vocabulary words from the Spanish 2 unit. In class, each student presented their house and described it using the grammar and vocabulary.
