Saint John XXIII September 7, 2018
Hip Hip Hooray for the First Week of School!
What a wonderful first week back we have had with our Saint John XXIII family! A week full of excitement, connections, smiles, celebrations, and blessings! The commitment and passion for teaching and learning is very evident in every classroom at Saint John XXII. At our staff meeting we shared our "moments" from the first day and I can assure you that these amazing SJ staff members hold your children with the utmost care and dedication.
Thank-you for the blessing and privilege of walking with your children this year. I look forward to seeing the "masterpieces" God has brushed us with at Saint John XXIII.

It is our first priority every morning to ensure that all students are accounted for. Using this new tool helps us to expedite this process to ensure the safe arrival of all of our students. We appreciate your partnership in keeping our little people safe.

We recognize that there were a number of transportation issues that were smoothed out as the week went on. Thank-you for your patience and cooperation as our Transportation department worked through these challenges.
On behalf of the Sacramental Preparation Committee, we wish to welcome all those preparing for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation in the 2018/19 session.
We encourage and invite all families and children to join us for 11am Mass this Sunday, September 9th. We will be hosting an Information Session immediately following fellowship (approximately 12:30 pm), which will include a variety of information regarding all three of the Sacraments, as well as a special guest speaker. There will also be a Meet and Greet for Father Kris as part of fellowship to welcome him to our Faith Community.
Registration forms for all 3 Sacraments will be available following the Information Session.
Please find attached a copy of the 2018 Sacramental Preparation document for your reference which includes the dates for classes, rehearsals and celebrations for each Sacrament.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
