St. Jude Family,
As we continue our journey back to normal, yesterday, we celebrated Pastor Appreciation Day. Each grade class presented a spiritual bouquet to Father Michael during mass. Father Michael we sincerely thank you for we know a pastor’s work is never done. Your smile enlightens our lives.
Last Friday, the pep rally assembly kicked off our St. Jude annual basketball tournament. The school was introduced to our basketball players, students played games, the poms performed and some lucky students caught prizes thrown into the stands. Come watch the 5th grade Flyers in action here at St. Jude tonight. Go Flyers!!
