A Message from our Principal

We give thanks for all of our faculty and staff. Please show your personal sign of appreciation for their great work and sacrifices.


We read the Gospel where Jesus prepared breakfast for the disciples. This fishing expedition is a symbol of the Church, seeking souls, across space and time. Jesus is telling us that the “catch of fish” that he makes possible is the full amount of people that Christ will gather to himself.


Peace in Christ,

Dr. John Shreve

We need your donations!

Donations needed! As you go out to make your father’s day purchases, why not pick up something to help support the golf tournament? Your donations will be used to make baskets to auction off at the golf tournament. Proceeds from the golf tournament will be contributed towards installing a shade cover over the school’s new outdoor multi-purpose sports court. Don’t know what to get? Here’s a few ideas: Grilling items (what dad doesn’t love to grill?), sports items (memorabilia, game tickets, etc.), vouchers (hunting, fishing, golfing), gift cards (if you love eating there, they’ll love eating there).

All items can be taken up to Tracy at the front office. For questions, please contact:
