On March 14, Saint John Vianney (SJV) Catholic School was honored with a visit by Coadjutor Bishop Oscar Cantú. A school-wide Mass was celebrated, and rejoiced in song with our SJV Choir, led by Mrs. Adams, Choir Director.
Parents, grandparents and the Parish Community gathered at Saint John Vianney Church to be a part of this special Mass. Father Steve Brown concelebrated Mass with Bishop Cantú.
Showing our appreciation for Bishop Cantú’s visit, the school gifted him a blanket, made by the hands of each student, along with a special personalized book with sincere wishes and blessings.
Principal, Laura Seminatore and Assistant Principal, Barbara Spencer, led the Bishop around the campus.
Students were excited to ask the Bishop questions about his childhood, family, and becoming Bishop.
Bishop Cantú addressed the students with a message of Lenten hope and renewal; he reminded the students that they are children of God, respect their parents, and love and serve the Lord.
The parish and school staffs were delighted to join Bishop Cantú and Father Steve for lunch. The day was enjoyed by all.
