From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,


On this Veterans Day, I want to take a moment to recognize and thank all of the veterans who are a part of our Father Doyle School community from current families, to alumni, relatives, parishioners, and more - thank you for your service and may God bless you and your families on this day and always.


As many of you are aware, we recognized veterans in our community in a special way this past week with our annual Veterans Day Prayer Service on Tuesday. Special thanks to Mr. Godin and all of our students and staff who helped prepare the service. It was a beautiful evening recognizing the service and sacrifice of so many in our community. Be sure to check out a few photos below.


I pray you are able to enjoy this long weekend with your family. As always, please continue reading below for important updates and information!

Calling all Students and Families! Annual FJVD Christmas Concert - December 15th

We are excited to once again be preparing for our annual FJVD Christmas Concert. For those who are new to our school community, or perhaps were unable to participate last year, the Christmas Concert is traditionally held in early December and features musical performances from students across all grade levels.


This year's Christmas Concert is scheduled for Thursday, December 15th beginning at 6:30pm in the church. Each grade will be performing at least one musical number during the concert, which they are working hard on preparing in their music classes. The evening will also feature scripture readings, a living nativity, and time for prayer in preparation for the coming of Christmas.


In order to help plan and prepare for the event, we are asking families to RSVP at the link here no later than Monday, November 14th. Thank you so much, and we look forward to seeing you at this wonderful event amidst the Advent season!
