Dear St. Rose family,
Thank you for praying throughout our principal search process. The committee has completed its work and it is with joy and gratitude that we welcome Mrs. Jessie Wimer as our next principal at St. Rose School!
Throughout the process, parents, parishioners and teachers shared insights about the qualities they hoped to see in our next principal. Two stood out among them: middle school experience and a strong Catholic Social Teaching influence. Jessie brings these attributes and much more.
Having taught eighth grade at St. Ignatius School for the past ten years, she was part of an interim administrative team that helped their school finish the year strong. She is a woman of great faith who has also spent the last year participating on the Social Sciences Curriculum Committee at the Department of Catholic Schools, reviewing our current standards and recommending new curriculum for the years ahead.
The Holy Spirit most certainly played a role in this process and has many more good things in store for St. Rose. With your continued prayers and Jessie's leadership, we are poised to thrive as we fulfill our mission.
God bless you,

Dr. Tod Worner
In an age of marvelous technology affording instant access to endless pleasures and efficiencies, one would think that we had “arrived.” We have the promise of forever feeling good. But paradoxically, our limitless connectivity and perpetual satisfaction of desire has left us not deliciously sated, but curiously empty. Why, when we have everything we need to be happy, aren’t we fulfilled?
