Messages From Fr. Anthony Smith


Though the heat is still with us, we know summer is winding down. Soon we will see longer shadows, mums bloom and dew covering the grass in the morning.  Fall is on our doorstep.  This week our students returned to school and our faith formation programs are gearing up for a new school year.  It seems like it was yesterday that we were looking forward to a restful summer after a year of navigating the pandemic.  It was a short summer for our faculty and staff, as they came back in August to prepare for the upcoming year.  We will continue to face some of the same challenges of keeping our children safe and in- person while this pandemic lingers.  I am confident that we will have another successful year education our children and forming them in the faith. 

As we begin this year I want to express my gratitude to all our faculty and staff for the work they have done to prepare for this new school year.  Dedication, love and faith are the virtues that I see in our teachers and staff, and it is these virtues that will inspire our children. 

I would also like to welcome our new teachers and catechists who have joined us this year.  Thank you for being an integral part of our parish community.

Finally I ask for your prayers for our faculty, staff and students as they begin this year.  Your faith and support are the very foundation upon which we can provide our children the best education possible.  And I ask for a special prayer for our Confirmation candidates of St. John the Evangelist who are in their final stages of preparation.
