St. Rose of Lima Catholic Academy sent the following thank you letter to SsJA for the donation made to their school due to Sandy. In addition, their Pre-Kindergarten class made a poster that is displayed in the main hall.

    ....As we celebrated Catholic Schools Week this year, we had a special day reminding our children what it means "to serve." We had a special dress down day called "Pay It Forward" and our students made Valentines for you and your children who went out of your way to help us last year after "the storm".

    God is good; out of such a devasting occurrence, we felt the love of God through your generosity and friendship. Enjoy and God continue to bless you for your "service" to others.

In the peace of Christ through Mary,
Theresa Andersen, Principal

Hand in Hand Through Christ

From the Principal

On Friday, February 7, 2014 Ss. Joachim and Anne School will honor the memory of Sister Mary Suplee, SND,  former Principal (1973 - 1990), at the 9 o'clock Mass at SsJA Church.
Sister Mary dedicated her life to Catholic education throughout the years of her ministry. Her accomplishments were known and respected by her colleagues.
As an administrator of the Ss. Joachim and Anne School Community she exhibited a dynamic guiding force as she ministered to the multifaceted needs of her student population. In 1990, she was the recipient of the National Catholic Educator Distinguished Principal Award.
We thank her for being a gift to us. We will miss her wisdon, knowledge, faith and service.
Sister Mary wrote, "I think that God molds me through the people and events of my life. I believe that God is at the center of all things - in a quiet, elusive way - and I believe that I shall come to know God fully."
We are sure that God has said, "Please come, my good and faithful servant and enjoy your heavenly reward".
Thank you Sister Mary.
Sincerely in Christ,
Mrs. Linda Freebes
