Good Afternoon Parent(s)/Guardians(s) and Students:
Our Advent Season is underway, and while Advent is certainly a time of celebration and anticipation of Christ’s birth, it is more than that. It is only in the shadow of Advent that the miracle of Christmas can be fully understood and appreciated, and it is only in the light of Christmas that the Christian life makes sense. We wish you a blessed Advent Season, time to not only connect with the Church, but family and loved ones.
We would like to extend our best wishes to all participating in a Winter Extra-Curricular activity. May all of your time, hard work, and determination allow you to achieve the goals you set for yourself and/or your team.
Should you have any questions, about anything, please let us know.

Diocese of Toledo Compliance Audit Results
The Diocese of Toledo Safe Environment Program is in Full Compliance with USCCB Norms.
Each year, the Diocese of Toledo is required to undergo an audit to ensure that it is in compliance with the articles of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. Bishop Daniel Thomas is pleased to announce that, for the fiscal year 2016-2017, the Diocese was found to be in full compliance with the requirements in the Charter.
The Diocese of Toledo remains committed to ensuring the protection of children and providing a safe environment for all young people. If you have any knowledge of abuse that has been committed by a cleric, or any employee or volunteer of the Catholic Church, please report the abuse to your local police department, Child Protection Services, and Mr. Frank DiLallo, Diocesan Victim Assistance Coordinator. Mr. DiLallo can be reached at (419) 214-4880 or by mail at 1933 Spielbusch Avenue, Toledo, Ohio 43604.
Thank you for all your efforts to ensure that we are all appropriately checked and trained. We have made extraordinary progress in the past year meeting compliance requirements. That would not be possible without the complete cooperation of all of you.
Thank you for your ongoing cooperation with this very important matter.
The Delphos chapter of the VFW recently sponsored a youth essay competition giving current 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students the opportunity to write an essay expressing their views on an annual patriotic theme, which for this year was “America’s Gift to My Generation”.
Students were judged on their knowledge of the theme, clarity of ideas, and overall theme development. The essay needed to be the student’s original work and a product of the student’s own thinking.
St. John’s had four junior high students who were selected as winners at the local level, which included, Riley Taylor (7th), Cassidy Beining (8th), Adara Fuerst (8th), and Landon Elwer (8th).
There was one student whose essay was chosen a winner at the district level and is headed to State and that was Adara Fuerst.
These students were recognized by the Delphos VFW.
