As we turn the calendar to November and begin to think about Thanksgiving and Christmas, please consider purchasing your gift cards through our Manna Program. Families pay the full value of the gift card, but a percentage of the value is given back to us. We split that percentage with families as tuition credit. Last year over $2300 in tuition credit was given through Manna. One family earned over $400 in tuition credit. If you have any questions, please reach out to Mary Wheaton at Manna Form

School Board
A Catholic school board is a body whose members are selected, discerned/or elected to participate in decision-making in designated areas of responsibility. A parish school is part of the educational mission of the parish for which the pastor is the canonical administrator. He delegates, according to diocesan policy, administrative responsibilities to the school principal, who is accountable to him. As part of the Joliet Diocese, principals are accountable to the Bishop through the Superintendent of Catholic Schools.
