District Faith Theme

The greatest promise for all of our students this year will be a new faith theme. Along with the other schools in our district, we at VJM are celebrating, Faith in our Families, Supporting the Domestic Church . To this end, VJM will continue its commitment to our school masses, liturgies celebrations and retreats. We look forward to our continued relationship with St. Albert Parish as well as exploring ways to enhance faith discovery within the classroom and the home.
