From the Desk of Principal Vance – Happy Thanksgiving!

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good.  His love endures forever. Psalm 106:1

We are thankful…

for our students
       for our teachers
            for our families
                 for our parish
                      for our community
                           for food on our table, peace in our neighborhood, a roof over our head.
We are mindful that not everyone has these things right now.  

As we gather with loved ones, friends and family, over the Thanksgiving holiday, know how very grateful we are for the St John the Baptist community united for a common purpose: growing the faith of our young people and educating them to live out God’s plan for their lives.  Our world is an uncertain place right now, but God’s promises to us remain steadfast, and for that we give thanks.  Please keep us in your prayers as you celebrate Thanksgiving.  We are so very blessed to be a part of the vibrant St John the Baptist community.
