Blessing and Dedication Ceremony
August 18th, 2017
What a dream com true! Our new high school, lovingly named after Archbishop Joseph P. Hurley, founder of Morning Star Schools, was ready for students by August 2017 – just in time for the 2017-2018 school year! Our blessing and dedication ceremony, performed by Bishop Felipe J. Estevez, of the Diocese of St. Augustine, was held on August 18th. Thank you to the many wonderful donors who have helped us with this very important project. The outpour of generosity has been overwhelming and a blessing to Morning Star School. Thank you!
“This is something we have been trying to get done for 30 years,” said Jean Barnes, Principal. “I started in 1986 teaching eighth grade, and I would wonder where do my kids go? There was nowhere. It was heartbreaking. Its been a hard-fought battle for all our parents who are committed to a Catholic education.”
This project should enliven our faith. When you look to the interests of your neighbor and serve them, we become God’s co-workers.
