St. Thomas More High School

Father Christopher (TM '95) visited Lumen Christi yesterday! Read the full post below.

Lumen Christi Catholic School
Today our second grade students welcomed Father Christopher Klusman into their classroom. Father Christopher is the Chaplain at St. Thomas More High School, and is one of only 13 deaf priests in the world. The students learned a lot about Father Christopher's experience as a deaf child and priest. They also shared with him their "Hail Mary" song which they have been learning to sign for both the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and their First Communion.
Read more about Fr. Christopher at archive.jsonline.com/news/religion/127716843.html. It was truly a blessing to have him share his story with our students. See the comments for some pics from the visit.

Support STM this #GivingTuesday! On Tuesday, November 27, STM will join the global non-profit community by participating in Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving. Because of your support for last year’s Giving Tuesday campaign, STM was able to purchase interactive Smart Boards for each of our classrooms, and this year, we are asking for your support to upgrade technology in the Jerry Huennekens Gymnasium. For this year’s campaign, STM is requesting donations to purchase a high-definition projector and large display screen for the gymnasium, drastically improving the quality of our all-school assemblies and Masses. As you can see in the video below from last week’s Veterans Day assembly, our out-of-date projector and small screen do not match the high caliber of our speaker system or the size of our typical audience. Will you support STM this #GivingTuesday, helping us raise at least $6,300 for these much-needed improvements? ... See MoreSee Less
