Welcome to St. James Catholic School
P ri nc i pal Jef f P uri c hi a
Welcome to October and some much needed cooler
weather. As you read this you will have just completed
parent/teacher conferences or will be getting ready to meet
with your child’s teacher. These conferences mark the halfway
point in the trimester. I have been very happy with the overall
effort from our students, I hope that trend continues for the
rest of the semester and year.
After our fall break, our schedule starts to get really
busy. Our 8th graders will be visited by all of the Catholic High
Schools; picture re-takes on the 18th; several field trips, and
some dress down days. All of this on top of your own very busy
personal schedules. Being busy also means the time will go by
quickly. Be sure your child is staying on top of homework and
getting enough rest/nutrition, because the change in weather
also means sniffles/sickness.
If you are traveling for this long weekend, please be
safe, America does not have a fall break, so extra traffic at
this time is not what most daily commuters are expecting. I
hope to see everyone at conferences and back in school on the
Yours in Christ,
Jeff Purichia Principal

Join us for the 65th Annual Living Rosary on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at
Trinity High School in Louisville (4011 Shelbyville Rd.). Our speaker
will be Fr. Joseph-Mary Hertzog, O.P., Associate Pastor of St. Louis
Bertrand, and the M.C. will be Fr. Matthew Hardesty, Pastor of Holy
Trinity, Fredericktown and Holy Rosary, Manton. The Holy Name Band
performs at 2:30 p.m. and the "living Rosary" – made up of children throughout the
Archdiocese – forms at 3 p.m. Fr. Herzog will speak about "The Rosary: For the November
Election and Peace throughout the World." Then the congregation will pray the Rosary,
led by different lay groups and with children representing the different beads. Finally,
there will be a blessing and crowning of a statue of Our Lady of Fatima.
This will be the second year for our school competition! The school that sends the most
students gets to keep a similar statue and plaque in their school for a year... and a pizza
party! For more information you may email Becky Glasser at [email protected] or
Fr. Hardesty at [email protected] This event is sponsored by the Archdiocesan
Marian Committee, a ministry of the Archdiocese of Louisville.
