Are you making a decision regarding your child’s education for 2009-2010?  If so, please reflect on this statement by the Catholic Bishops from their letter, Renewing Our Commitment to Catholic Elementary and Secondary School in the Third Millennium.  In it the bishops state that “Catholic schools afford the fullest and best opportunity to realize the fourfold purpose of Christian education, namely to provide an atmosphere in which the Gospel message is proclaimed, community of God is experienced, service to our brothers and sisters is the norm, and thanksgiving and worship to our God is cultivated.”  

Register to attend Pope John Paul II Catholic School, where academics, values, and faith development exist at the heart of each child’s education.  For information, contact the school at 612-789-8851.


How holy is the feast in which Christ is our food.  Grace fills our hearts.  Visit the Adoration Chapel praying that by strength we may become one in HIM and always have eternal salvation.
