WELCOME TO ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST CATHOLIC SCHOOL!
On Monday, November 23 we celebrated Mass with Bishop Mark Bartchak in honor of our 125th anniversary. We are so thankful for St. John Catholic School and all of our benefactors! For more pictures of Mass and the Bishop's visit with the children, click HERE.
We are grateful to our Veterans and were honored to spend our Veterans Day honoring and thanking them in a variety of ways. Mr. Marc McMullin, veteran, United States Marines, spoke to the students about what it means to serve in the military and about the importance of taking care of our veterans once they return home. We learned about the great work that is done at the VA hospitals and the younger students joined with their Guardian Angels in the older grades to write get well and thank you cards to those at the VA hospital in Altoona. Afterward, our students participated in the Veterans Day ceremonies at the Centre County courthouse, singing "Thank you, Veterans". It was a beautiful and meaningful day. You can view pictures of the celebration HERE or a video of our students singing HERE.
