Welcome from Sr. Raphael

Greetings from SS. Simon & Jude and THANK YOU for visiting our website! For over 69 years our school has resolved to help young people create a love of learning, a heart for service, and a reputation for compassion. You are one of over 4,300 alumni who have graduated from our school, and been a part of our longstanding tradition of excellence. I feel honored that so many of our local alums send their children to our school; currently 1 of every 10 students is the child of an alumnus of our school!

Throughout the United States, SSJ alumni have established themselves as caring, giving leaders in their churches, their workplaces and their communities. Your resolve to serve others brings me immense pride. What you have accomplished as alum of SS. Simon & Jude is in large measure responsible for the excellent reputation of our school.

I am so pleased to have the opportunity to visit with many of you at various events throughout the year, especially our annual Fall Festival. I am always energized when I hear of your accomplishments and the significant contributions you are making in our world today.

Remember that no matter where you live, you can remain involved with SSJ by keeping us posted on where you are and what you are doing. Just e-mail us at to keep in touch. You also can stay connected by reading our semi-annual Newsletter ALIVE WITH THE SPIRIT which is published three times each year, or by visiting our website on a regular basis. Activities involving alums will be posted here, especially information on class reunions.

Of course, financial support is always welcome. In fact, the financial contributions of SSJ alumni represent a vital resource for SS. Simon & Jude’s programs and services. If you would like to make a contribution, or have an idea for an innovative gift, please contact Mary Jo Wahlers at 602-242-1299 or click here to visit the online giving area of our website.

Remember – wherever you go and whatever road you may travel, you will always have a home at SS. Simon & Jude.

May God bless you and those you love.

Sr. Raphael Quinn, I.B.V.M.
