Dear SPC Families,

My goodness, we have been spoiled with some fantastic weather! I hope you are all enjoying the calm before the seasonal weather arrives. Thank you to the teams who came and supported the Endowment last Friday! It was such a great evening of community. We raised more than $10,000 that will go directly into the Fund, helping to sustain our mission for future generations. A big thank you to our Endowment Committee for their commitment to ensuring the Fund continues to grow! And...for planning this great event for our SPC Parish and School! Pencil in Trivia Night 2023, same time next year!

If your child is retaking their fall photos, please remember to send your child with the original photo packet.

SPC has a long-standing tradition of partnering with the parish social service ministry to ensure that needy families in our community have a wonderful Christmas. The Adopt-A-Family program will collect funds and purchase gift cards so families can buy their own gifts. Given the timeline for purchasing the gift cards to ensure timely distribution on December 17th, we will collect funds through December 9th.

Please consider donating to the adopt a family program so our school can continue this beloved Advent tradition.

100% of these proceeds will go towards the adopt a family program in Social Service Ministry.

SPC Life Team 
The SPC Life Team is collecting food donations for migrant families staying in local hotels seeking asylum in the US. The food needs to be microwavable. We will be collecting donations of microwavable mac-n-cheese, microwavable Campbell’s chicken soup, and microwavable Chef Boyardee the week of November 7-11th. Please send the donations to your student's classroom.

Cardinal Cupich, along with Catholic Charities, is working to provide shelter, food and support to the asylum seekers as they wait for their hearings. These are legal immigrants who have applied for asylum in our country, because if they go home to their country of origin they will be tortured or killed for their beliefs, faith, etc. Let us continue to help the most vulnerable.
