HELP PLEASE! Our Catholic Services Appeal pledges are still short $50,000. This amount will be taken from our Church and School operating budget if our goal of $198,500 is not met. Please prayerfully consider your pledge today to help us reach 100 percent participation. There are envelopes in the back of Church labeled with each family who has yet to pledge. Make your pledge today and thank you for your participation!


New athletic director

We are pleased to announce that  our new Dean of Students, Mr. Tim Gibson, will also be our new Athletic Director. His experience with coaching at the varsity level, involvement in hosting sports camps and his intentional involvement with our students made him the perfect choice for this position and we look forward to working with him.
