HAPPY 100TH BIRTHDAY! March 9th was a special day for Villa as we congratulated Mother Veronica on her landmark birthday. Mother Veronica spent 21 years at Villa as Mistress of Postulants and Principal of BOTH the Elem. and High Schools. She formed our 1st Glee Club and raised the necessary funds to expand the campus. Happy Birthday to a visionary woman who Villa will always cherish!
Welcome to St. John Villa Academy
Welcome to St. John Villa Academy's continually updated website! Get to know us virtually and visit us often. We recently celebrated our 85th anniversary and look forward to our next 85 years!
Honor or remember a loved one or a favorite Villa Sister this holiday season by sponsoring a poinsettia plant to be displayed in the Chapel areas.
Please remember in your prayers our sisters and brothers in the Philippines. Hundreds of thousands have lost everything.
The Sisters of St. John the Baptist have many Filipino Sisters serving the poor and orphaned in the areas most severely damaged. Sr Rosita Nunez, CSJB who served at St. John Villa High School and is now back in the Philippines, sent the following message from Manila:
"Our Sisters in Leyte, the island that is hardest hit by the super typhoon, are working directly with the people. Our school and convent are in use as evacuation centers. They are serving hundreds of people. Help is desperately needed."
Donations to help the relief effort may be sent to:
Sisters of St. John the Baptist
100% of every donation will be sent directly to our Sisters in the Philippines.
The 2012-2013 St. John Villa Academy Annual Report has been published.
