Some of my readers have been interested in the progress of St. Stephen Academy, a classical liberal arts secondary school affiliated with St. Stephen the First Martyr Parish in Sacramento. I have reported on the Academy in the past and even asked my readers for donations. For reasons that remain something of a mystery to me, the Academy will close at the end of this school year. If you are someone who responded with prayers or a donation, rest assured that many students have benefited enormously from their short time at the Academy.
Some very good families are now scrambling to find alternatives. In addition, the teachers and staff have been thrust into unemployment in a very difficult economy. Some members of the faculty moved across the country to teach here. They could all use your prayers.
