I consider my Catholic School education a gift from God. The education I received, the friends I made, the memories I hold close, are all a result of my experiences at St. Martin of Tours and St. John the Baptist DHS. That little mustard seed of faith was planted and nurtured at those wonderful Catholic institutions and it gives me great joy to “pay it forward” as Principal of St. William the Abbot School. To be able to plant those same seeds of faith with this generation of students is incredibly humbling, knowing that Catholic education is critically important to the future of our Church.Mrs. Elizabeth Bricker
