Thanks to our the generosity of our donors, we were successful in meeting our 2023 goal. We raised $53,085, of which 100% will go toward financial assistance at JPII.

Being on a field of faith truly lets you connect and be open not only with your teammates, but God as well. Whether it’s a simple kiss on my crucifix, or a longer prayer asking for faith and guidance during a difficult game, the sport (baseball) has truly been able to become one of my favorite forms of prayer because of and through John Paul II High School.

– Joe Schumacher ’24, Excerpt from Keynote Speech

The annual Take Flight Breakfast gives us the opportunity each year to celebrate the amazing young men and women of Pope John Paul II High School, while raising support for students who will benefit from tuition assistance.

“We are so thankful to both the staff at Pope John Paul II High School and the sponsors whose contributions have made this opportunity available to our family. We have had three children attend JPII and our youngest will make it four when he enters his freshman year in 2024. This would not have been financially possible for us if not for the generous support of the sponsors who give year after year to provide a Catholic High School education so close to home. Through God’s grace and the intercession of Pope Saint John Paul II, our family has been immeasurably blessed by the staff and sponsors of Pope John Paul II High School.”

-Joe and Brook Schumacher (parents of Joe Schumacher ’24)
