Saved – St. Christopher School

January 24, 2014

Do you believe in miracles?

Reports coming in today, including a Southtown Star article, are that St. Christopher School in Midlothian, IL, has been saved, avoiding a threatened closure after 90 years of existence.


This development is a redeeming sign of the Holy Spirit still strongly at work in our world today.

Many hundred parishioners and alumni worked together to pledge their support and commitment to keep St. Christopher open well into the future, all within just two weeks of the closure announcement. Pledges totaling nearly $2,000,000 payable over the 5 years were raised in just one week. The St. Christopher Parish community will be celebrating and should be proud.

Special thanks to those who led the charge: fellow Lewis University alumnus John Clavio, Nancy Callaghan, Principal Maureen Wilson, Pastor Rev. Krzysztof Paluch, my friends David and Janinne Leonhardt, and many others … and to each one of you who made a financial pledge, volunteered your time and talents, and prayed with us for the success of this endeavor.

St. Christopher has been open for 90 years. Here’s to the next 90! (And appropriately, this story is the 90th post on this blog!)

Praise The Lord, and may He bless St. Christopher and all those who pulled together as one to make this miracle happen.
