It is in giving of ourselves, emerging from ourselves, that we find true JOY. Pope Francis

Es  en el regalo de mi misma persona que recibo mucha alegría. El Papa Francisco.


Thank you for being a part of our Annual Benefit Dinner and the 25th anniversary celebration of Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School. As the last Catholic school in East St. Louis, we welcome your support. We are especially grateful to those who bought tickets, donated silent auction items, participated in the oral auction, and helped with set-up and clean-up.  We hope that you enjoyed the evening and know that you will always be in our prayers. We look forward to many more years working together. We would also like to give a special thanks to our violinists and Mr. Phil Tinge for the hour of beautiful music. You showcased what we do so well.

Many blessings and much joy to all of you.
