I am humbled by the overwhelming support and words of encouragement that I have received over the past few months and I can’t thank you enough for the kind gestures. I am here to serve you and if there is anything I can do to help this parish and school, please feel free to let me know. I am grateful to be a part of such a caring community. Please continue to pray for our school, our faculty, and our children as we continue a tradition of academic and religious excellence.
