For All Moms, Grandmothers, and Godmothers........................... Happy Mother's Day!

"Blessed be all mothers
Who have come into our lives
Whose kindness, care and loving
Remain with us to guide.

Your inspiration in us
Made us strive in every way
Especially to remember
Helping others makes our day.

Mothers, this little tribute
Flows directly from my heart
You are so loved and cherished
Invaluable, one and all, you are."

May Procession

We will send a detailed email out about May Procession later this week, but here is some information to help you prepare.


  • All are invited to attend
  • May Procession will begin at 10:30 AM
  • Students in grades K,1,3,4,5,6 and 7 are to wear their StJP full Winter Uniform on this day (7th grade will be given a red sash to wear to represent the Sacrament of Confirmation)
  • Students in Pre-K at Little Joe's are to wear their Sunday Best
  • Students in 2nd grade should wear their Communion outfits (may come to school at regular time or be dropped off to their classroom by 9:30 AM)
  • 8th grade should wear their graduation outfits (report to school and FFH by 9:00 AM for individual pictures)
  • If you attend May Procession please be sure to be seated prior to students processing in church and please keep all aisles clear
  • Parking will take place in the school parking lot, Easton Rd, and Roberts. If you park in the parking lot please be sure to back into each space so that when students are dismissed, you can pull out carefully (this is back to the way we did it earlier this year, but will only be for May Procession)
  • Fairhill Rd will be closed this day
  • After May Procession, 8th grade students, teachers and Pastors will take a class picture on the church steps or by the alter depending on weather
  • Students will be dismissed from the church to go back to their classrooms
  • Buses will pick-up outside the school on Fairhill
  • Upper Moreland and Springfield do not have transportation this day
  • Car riders will dismiss to the back parking lot. If you are parked out on a local street, you will need to walk up to the grassy area of our playground to pick up your child or children. 8th graders may go with their parent once the class picture has been taken
  • Students will dismiss at 12:00 PM for the day

Congratulations to all of our students that received awards this past week!
