*UPDATE*

As our challenging 2012 year comes to a close, we have terrific news to share.  Our newly installed Bishop Gregory Parkes celebrated the first mass of the school year in our packed chapel-guests had to stand in the hallway since the pews were overflowing. 

Thanks to your efforts, prayers and generous donations, here is the great news that the Board of Directors and I were able to share with Bishop Parkes:
  1. In less than 6 months, John Paul II raised $720,000! -Our mandate was to raise $697,000.
  2. When the doors opened on Monday, August 20th, to being the new school year, 164 students walked into our hallways!- Our mandate was to increase enrollment from 122 students to 135 students.
None of this success could have been possible without your efforts and desire to give until it hurt.    Some of you heard our story through our many public campaigns and reached out to us for the first time.  I know that you made sacrifices so that our school could, and would, stay open long into the future.   I know that you helped us to spread the Good Word about the future of John Paul II and its mission to spread the Gospel and help the less fortunate.
 
This is not the end of our journey, but the beginning.   Our first Varsity football game of the season produced the first win since September of 2010 (35-33)! (The four local priests and our Bishop on the sidelines may have helped, too!) Our students are taking more AP classes than ever before and we’ve had to offer additional sections to accommodate them. New courses were added while we explore plans to further enhance our curriculum.  Not surprisingly, we must consider what we will need to do when our enrollment increases beyond the building’s current capacity of 200.  When you stroll the halls of our blessed school, you can truly feel the power of the Holy Spirit at work.  God has great plans for our school, our children and our place in this community.
 
The Board Members, faculty and administration are committed to developing the children of our community morally, mentally and physically.  In addition, we are committed to teaching our children not only how to “Be Good,” but also to “Do Good!”  This is our mission, this is our calling and thanks to you, I know that John Paul II will continue to thrive for generations to come!
 
Thank you again and God Bless each and every one of you! 
 
 

 

OUR STORY

On January 5, Principal Sr. Ellen Cronan learned that her Diocese would no longer be able to provide its traditional levels of financial assistance to John Paul II Catholic High School in Tallahassee, Florida.
 
"Our situation is one that is faced by too many Catholic schools throughout the nation today," she said.
 
The school has already raised $415,000 through traditional fundraising efforts but needs to raise the final $231,000.   
 
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
 
Many hands make light work. Make a donation now.  Whether $5 or $50,000, it brings us closer to our goal when added to those made by people of ALL FAITHS who understand the benefits of a Catholic education.
