A Message from the Pastor 

Dear Friends,

Christ, be our Light!  Christ IS our light!  We are called to walk toward the Light, and then to “speak” Light to our world.  Ours is a unique opportunity to be shaped by the Gospel so as to give that real alternative to our children.  What does that mean?

A Gospel way of speaking to/with/and of one another.  What will keep our School open and flourishing, inviting new families?  Our mission: to teach Jesus!  How?  By living as His disciples. To be what we hope to see - and be - the Light of Christ.

Jesus is the key.  Jesus recognized his blessedness and lived out of that - seeking and finding the goodness in those around him.  We too are blessed, and as we come to realize our own goodness we are drawn to seek and find the goodness in those around us.  Are there challenges?  Definitely!  But we as disciples of Christ, as Apostles of Hope, are never alone.  Jesus, the Light, walks with us, guiding us, helping us to see others as He sees.

 SSPJ Parish has and continues to make a commitment to form families and children for the Gospel of Christ.  We are committed to walk with Jesus and with one another into the ever made new Light.  Let’s delight in making that journey with our present families and with new ones  as we continue to evaluate who we have been and who we are invited to become.

We have been wonderfully supported by the Diocesan Superintendent this year as we are developing our middle school Academy of Sts. Philip and James.  We are excited as we continue to expand both spiritual and academic ways to ready all of our students to shape the world for Christ by knowing, loving, and serving Him and all of His brothers and sisters.

Blessings and peace, my friends!

Father Tom Haggerty
