On Sunday, January 28, 2018 St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy opened Catholic Schools Week with an 11:00am Mass and an Open House following. As in every year, we honor a distinguished graduate at this mass, and this year John Ketcham, Class of 2005 was honored.
John Ketcham has served in the parish ever since his graduation in 2005, beginning in the parish office for three years during evenings and weekends and becoming a Lector and Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. In 2008, John began serving as a sacristan, and in 2015 became the Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus Colon-Msgr. Higgins Council 309. He is also is the chair of the Pastoral Planning Council. After SFA, John continued his education at St. Francis Preparatory and then as a member of Fordham University’s Global Business Honors Program. He graduated as the Valedictorian of all three schools.
John believes that a Catholic education installs the critical thinking, intellectual curiosity and moral formation necessary for human flourishing. It bears witness to the truth that is Jesus Christ.
Congratulations to John on his Distinguished Graduate Recognition!
