“Remember that nothing is small in the eyes of God. Do all that you do with love.”                 St. Therese of Lisieux

These words appeared on the cover of our Winter Gala—The Gift of Catholic Education event on December 9. It truly was an evening of love.

More than 70 guests joined us for a delicious meal prepared by Catawba Island Club, dessert by Wendy Kromer Confections and musical performances by the Gala Youth Choir directed by Mrs. Jody Nave, and the High School Choir directed by Mr. Matt Hadsell. We finished our evening with the Ave Maria sung beautifully by Mrs. Julie Costello, accompanied by Mr. Tim Claubaugh, Sr.

This very special evening supported our Sandusky Central Catholic School mission of Strengthening the Body, Challenging the Mind and Enriching the Spirit. We were blessed with gifts that will be used to provide the necessary tools students and teachers need to be the best versions of themselves.

We are blessed with staff members that are knowledgeable, caring, and dedicated leaders. With their guidance, we are able to educate our students and build leaders who are confident, service-minded and prepared for life; and, at the same time offer their families a strong value for their investment in Catholic Education.


If you attended our Winter Gala, thank you. In a reflection of love, we raised $80,000 for our ministry and with pledges and additional gifts arriving, we hope to reach our goal of $100,000. We are honored to be one of the largest ministries of Holy Angels, St. Mary’s, and Sts. Peter and Paul Parishes. Together, we will make a difference in the lives of children and the Catholic community.

We are thankful for committee members Mrs. Tracy Guerra, Mrs. Lori Holly, Mr. Geoff Palmer, Mrs. Jodie Palmer, Mrs. Gina Milkie, and Mrs. Heather Stouffer for a year of planning and implementation.

If you would like to learn more about our school, or would like our students to pray for you with a special intention, please call me at 419-627-9422.

May peace, love, joy, and hope be yours.
