In Her Own Words: God has truly blessed me by calling me back to teach at Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School. This is such a great joy for me.  God works in marvelous ways!  JP the Great always has been a very special school for me because I have great admiration and love for St. John Paul II.  As Pope, he said, ‘Only in Christ do we find real love and the fullness of life. And so I invite you today to look to Christ.’ It is a blessing for the students and me to come to a school building where we encounter Christ every day because He is at the center of the school. And we are reminded daily of God’s glory through all the saints throughout the school building.  They found real love and fullness through Christ and they remind us that only through Jesus can we find our purpose in life.
