Hello SJS Parents,

It was so amazing to see our future saint marching into mass this past Tuesday. Moments like that are such great reminders of the role models our faith has for our children to look up to as they strive for sainthood. 

I am looking forward to Jubilation this Saturday! It should be a wonderful event that directly benefits our church and school. If you cannot join us, but want to support the mission of our school and church, then check out our jubilation website where you can place bids on items from anywhere. 

Reminder: This coming Tuesday (11/8/22) is an early release day with a 2:00 pm dismissal. 

It is a great day to be a Bulldog!

EDGE Overnight Retreat
St. Lakovos Retreat Center-Kansasville, WI
February 4-5, 2023

Register here for the EDGE Overnight Retreat. We are excited to offer our first ever EDGE Overnight Retreat for all EDGE and SJS middle school youth this winter! This year’s theme is “Into the Dark”. The entire retreat will be put on by SJ Youth Ministers and EDGE Core Team members. The retreat will be a chance to get away from the day to day and to make ourselves available to opportunities to draw closer to Jesus especially in the sacraments, and youth will learn how Jesus not only forgives them of their sins but also has the power to cast out fear even in the darkness. Youth will be empowered to go forth and share the light of Christ with others. Adoration and Confession will be part of this retreat. The weekend will be filled with opportunities for prayer, talks, games, small group time, lots of food and lots of fun. We only have room for SIXTY youth so sign up today!
