Becoming a 6th grader may bring a great deal of uncertainty and anxiety. New Jr. High students will face the challenges of more academic work, managing time between homework and extra-curricular events and building healthy relationships with friends and family. Here at St. Jude, we teach truth, wisdom, and love. To assist our students with stepping out of their comfort zone and into real world experiences, and to show our support and optimism for their success, we gift our 6th graders bibles to equip them to face whatever life may bring. As it happened, last year we were unable to gift these bibles to our now 7th graders. During yesterday’s Mass, Father Michael blessed these bibles and are now in the hands of our 6th and 7th graders. Let us offer our prayers, love and support to our Jr. High students as they discover the life and path that God has for them.
