“A Catholic education has affected my life greatly. Going to church every Tuesday and having religion class has helped me grow more as a child of God. Having these classes have made me a better person and I can better determine wrong or right. Now, I am beginning to realize who I need to be. I have a closer relationship with Jesus and God because I was taught to pray more and listen to them. St. Jude School & Preschool really has greatly impacted my life.” Seventh Grade Student Witness Speaker, St. Jude School & Preschool
