Called Forth at St. John the Baptist Catholic School

September 29, 2022
Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. John’s,

As we begin the 2022-2023 school year, we are excited by the opportunity this year’s theme of Called Forth presents to our school community, which has now surpassed over 425 students! The focus of our Called Forth theme for this year is taking the next step in growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ. A few examples of how we plan to accomplish this are by:

  • Living out the virtues of faith, reverence, stewardship, generosity, gratitude, honesty, mercy, justice, and zeal.
  • Serving others through collections to our SJB food shelf, service days, Advent and Lent projects, and many additional ways.
  • Beginning the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program this month in our preschool.
  • Worshipping with the parish community during our weekly Wednesday Masses, at our three grade level Sunday Masses, and at our Catholic Schools Week Mass.
  • Attending adoration throughout the school year to spend time with the Lord and grow in friendship with him.

It is with gratitude and joy that we start this school year; gratitude for all of those who built and supported our school over the past decades and great joy that we can continue to build upon the strong foundations of our faith. Please continue to pray for us and our school families.

In Christ,

Ann Laird 
School Principal
