In honor of Catholic Schools Week, we thought you might like to hear from some alumni of our school with regard to the influence SSJ has had on their life. We will be posting every day this week about some spectacular people, who are a great representation of our wonderful school. First up – Joe (’82) and Michele (’81) Statt!
“It’s hard to describe what my education meant to me at SS. Simon and Jude because, honestly, it has been my whole world. To be specific, I met my soul mate, Joe Statt, there. We sent our four kids to school there. Our oldest son met and is marrying his soul mate next month, also a graduate of SSJ. Our children continued their journeys after grade school by staying involved with youth group and, now, adult leadership. It is, and always has been, home to our family. The saying “home is where the heart is” also rings true because once you have joined the family that is SS. Simon & Jude, your heart forever belongs there and the hearts of the nuns and staff and families we share our lives with will always be an extension of our families as well. It’s like the Catholic equivalent of “Cheers”. This is a place where you can go and everyone, every nun, knows your name. This is God’s family, our family. What a wonderful world!”
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s alumni posting!!
