This school year we will be graduating our 65th and final senior class. We are not going to phase out the high school quietly and sweep it under a rug. Rather, we have planned a year-long celebration of the gift of our parish high school. For 69 years, the high school has been bringing teenage children to know God’s love for them.

From Father Fasnacht, the founder of the high school, to the School Sisters of St. Francis who dedicated their lives to teaching young people to the current faculty and staff today, we celebrate all those who dedicated themselves to the educational and faith formation of our parish and neighborhood teens...Read More

Listening, as St. Benedict would later elaborate in his Rule, is the fundamental attitude from which all other attitudes flow...Read More

The room, which just two years ago functioned as two different spaces, today form one innovative space for learning…Read More
