Faith Fair 2015

Calendar Change:
half-day dismissal times
Diocese of Joliet School Superintendent, Father John Belmonte, has asked teachers in every school during the course of this school year to take part in a unique prayer experience, The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola.  The process involves meditations and contemplations intended to help us find God in all things.  Ignatius believed that God can be found in all things not just in prayer, but in the mundane and ordinary events of life.  This is one of the graces Father hopes all teachers in the diocese will gain from making the Spiritual Exercises together as school faculties.  
 
Each school has discretion to implement and schedule these Spiritual Exercises as they see fit.  We are building some of this into most of our early dismissal days.  Instead of 11:40 dismissal, we will dismiss at 11:00.  Teachers will participate in the Exercises between 11:15 and noon on the following Fridays, December 19th, February 6th, March 13th, and May 8th.
