Letter from Lucas Stangler, Principal

St. Jude Family,

As we enter May, our final days of the school year are filled with activities. Recently, we had a Mother-Son Bowling Night at Bowlero, a great time was had by all. In addition, our 8th graders received the sacrament of confirmation last week! It is wonderful to have the leaders of our school glowing with the Holy Spirit.

God Bless,

Lucas Stangler
