Greetings from Saint Joseph Prep! This latest vlog is an invitation, an invitation to find time and to be light. During the holidays, let us make time for those closest to us and let us be light for those most in need of us--whether they are far away or close to home. Be sure to enjoy the video of how our scholars used their recent “day,” focusing on their relationships with family and friends; it will inspire you. Whoever God is for you, may you experience the grace of God present in your relationships and revealed in these Advent Days. Blessings to you from SJP.

Gratitude for a Day Off Video

Welcome to “A Word from Mr. Nunan” and to the new version of the Phoenix Update!

As shared in the vlog, we are focusing this year on the virtues of Perseverance and Grit, and on doing the Little Things well: PiGLeT for short. Currently, our three Piglets are in the deserving hands of Sujin Lee ’22, Jacharis Lucien ’21, and Ms. Bacon, each nominated by their peers!

We honor the virtues of perseverance and grit because studies have shown that these qualities—more so than ability, intelligence, etc.—are often the critical factors in a young person’s success. These characteristics help define and determine our future, as many inspiring figures have noted:

· Nothing will work unless you do. –Maya Angelou

· The most difficult thing is the decision to act; the rest is merely tenacity. –Amelia Earhart

And here at Saint Joseph Prep, where we embrace the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, we know that the Little Things often matter most. Saint Mother Theresa reminds us: Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.Please join us in celebrating and living these important values.

Please also join us Friday and Saturday night at 7:00 PM in Phoenix for our fall play, You Can’t Take it With You. This will be a fantastic production! And don’t forget to check out the latest SJP Gear at the Phoenix Shop, now online.

See you at the theatre! Go Phoenix!

Take care. Mr. Nunan.
