The Homecoming Guidelines have not changed from last year. The U.S. Bishops state that “as Christians we should dress in a modest manner, wearing clothing that reflects our reverence for God and that manifest our respect for the dignity of the liturgy and for one another.” I do wish that you exercise modesty and sound judgments as you shop for dresses. I understand the challenges we face, adhering to our Catholic Faith while trying to shop in an environment that does not always share our beliefs. However, know that your help is greatly appreciated in supporting the message that we work to accomplish together each day.
Guidelines are on our website http://www.delphosstjohns.org/Forms.aspx and attached below.
Senior Walking Tour of Delphos
The Annual Senior Walking Tour of Delphos will be taking place on September 27th. This will be an opportunity for our Seniors to learn a little more about the history of Delphos, while spending a little time with their peers from Jefferson.
A big thank you to Rotary for organizing and sponsoring this event.

Future Business Leaders of America
Delphos St. John’s Future Business Leaders of America together with Delphos Jefferson’s FBLA and the Chamber of Commerce, received a Community Connectors grant. With this grant we are creating a mentorship program, Mentors3, that will run through the school year. The mentorship is a triangular program, we will have twenty-five teams of three. The teams consist of one business mentor, one FBLA member, and one student succeeder. Together, the teams will meet, plan, and work on a project of their choice for four hours per month. If you think that your son or daughter would benefit from this program please contact Jessica Bertling at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will look into matching them up with the best fitting team. This is a great opportunity for your child to gain some experience of what it is like in the work industry.
