Bishop Burbidge Attends Spring Musical

Bishop Michael Burbidge attended the final performance of The Fantasticks on Sunday, April 18th. He joined the in-person audience and opened the show with a blessing. Bishop Burbidge praised the hard work, determination, and talent of everyone involved in the show. He noted especially the level of performance, and the amount of energy the students exhibited dancing, singing, and performing while masked. Mr. Paul Hope presented a Fantasticks show shirt to the Bishop on behalf of himself, Mrs. Kingett, Miss Anderson, the cast, crew, and the Drama Club.

The Show Must Go On!

The John Paul the Great Drama Department is thrilled to present their Spring Musical this weekend. Opening night for "The Fantasticks" is joyfully anticipated. The directors, performers, musicians, and technicians could not be more excited to share the show with everyone, especially considering the unique challenges faced during the pandemic.

Join Our Pilgrimage on Holy Thursday

One of the most beautiful and ancient devotions of the Church, the 7 Church pilgrimage is similar to the stations of the Cross. The 7 Church stations are visits to local Churches with readings from the 7 last places Our Lord stood before His Crucifixion. It is done on Holy Thursday, the same night Jesus would have taken this journey. Join us in person or on Instagram as we make our John Paul 7 Church pilgrimage with our Lord on this sacred night.
