$10,000 DRAWING on APRIL 8, 2017. Will you be one of the lucky five players who remains in the drawing at the end of this suspense-filled night? Only 300 tickets at $100 each will be sold to try and win $10,000. Tension mounts as losing numbers are drawn throughout the night until only five tickets remain. This small pool of ticket-holders decides if they want to split the $10,000 evenly or continue pulling numbers until a winner emerges. Ticket purchase allows for two people to attend the drawing and a buffet dinner, but you do not need to be present to win. Small prizes will be given out throughout the evening. You can follow along from home using our app. More info to come this spring!

Welcome From the Pastor and Principal

Dear Families and Friends:

The value of a Catholic education can never be overstated or its reach imagined.

We appreciate your visit to our school website and hope you find the information enlightening.

At Saint Jerome School we are committed to academic excellence, a strong faith-filled environment and service as a means to building community. We are proud of our students, grateful to their families for allowing us to partner with them in their children's academic growth and faith development, and indebted to the parish for their support for fifty-seven years.

As pastor and principal, we hope you will use this site to learn more about our school and the many exciting opportunities we offer. Our students, parents, faculty, and parishioners look with pride on the accomplishments we have achieved together.

We would welcome you to return often to see the most recent news of our school or, better yet, come for a visit and witness first-hand the love of Christ made visible in our community.

In the joy of Christ,

Bishop John Dooher, Pastor and

Mrs. Kathleen Puleo, Principal
