IN-PERSON VIANNEY NIGHTS IS BACK FOR 2024, AND YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND!
Dear Friends and Alumni of St. John Vianney School and the Catholic Community of Flint,
Wishes from the students and staff at SJV that the New Year brings you blessings and peace. We are praying, learning, growing, and supporting each other in our classrooms. We continue to be blessed with people (like you!) who support us, and have been blessed with some grants. We want to share with you how these blessings have benefitted our students during the past year.
Because of your assistance and prayers, SJV continues to serve students in Flint and the surrounding area, and our children are able to daily experience an environme
nt of Jesus’ love. In the past month, seven of our students received the Sacrament of Baptism during our school masses. We exist for the Christian formation of children, and though not all will choose to be baptized, all will know they are loved by God.
We shared with you previously that in Fall 2022, we were able to replace the original windows (there since 1948!) on the primary side of the building, resulting in warm classrooms with improved ventilation and thousands of dollars in electricity savings. Since then, the improvements attributable to you and to grants we have received are numerous! We have increased the number of families helped with scholarships; purchased new textbooks in many subject areas; increased the number of Chromebooks for students’ use; funded summer tutoring for students; provided Professional Development for staff; brought in educational programs and presentations for students; added support staff personnel in classrooms; improved the building intercom system and internet connectivity; increased the academic support to students who are in need of it; upgraded the security of all entrance doors; added a sustainable garden to the campus, and even more! As it has since 1948 and will into the future, SJV continues to provide to children excellence in education while growing in their love of Jesus Christ.
We are excited about Vianney Nights 2024, and look forward to your participation! We will have both an online auction this year (beginning February 3rd, 2024) along with an in-person event to be held at St. John Vianney on February 10, 2024.

For the past few years, we have had to rely even more on monetary donations to help us meet the needs of our students. By the grace of God and the help of Fr. Firestone, we have once again been blessed with an amazing donor who has agreed to match all monetary donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000. Any donation can be mailed to school in the enclosed, addressed envelope or left at the church office. If you prefer, you can make a match donation by visiting www.sjvkids.org, choosing “Donate” at the top of the page, and following the prompts to “School Dinner Auction Fund.” Any donation of $500 or above will include two tickets to the event -- please indicate on the enclosed card if you will attend.
