St. Joe’s Gathers for Friendsgiving Celebration

On the Friday before Thanksgiving, over 150 people from the St. Joe’s family – students, their families, teachers, and staff – gathered to celebrate the holiday together with a Friendsgiving potluck hosted by Campus Ministry. The evening ran several hours with great conversation and energy, families sharing their favorite dishes and enjoying each other’s company.

The evening included a musical program with performances by senior Dante Wells on the piano, and senior Mary Lynam on the guitar accompanied by Jacob Kiser and Philip Stapleton.

After the meal, two individuals shared their stories of how Campus Ministry at St. Joseph’s has impacted their lives. Parent Mark Ferrell shared his story of how involvement in the community has been helpful for him and his family, and senior Anthony Cinquemani described how Campus Ministry became the means of finding the answer to his search for friends and meaning in high school. Gabe Lewis closed the evening by leading the group in song. Thank you to everyone who came to join in the evening’s fellowship and to the volunteers who made the night so enjoyable for all!
