Members of the Katy community, donors, senior students, and faculty attended the Pope John XXIII High School groundbreaking ceremony Friday, May 13. The expansion includes the Crosthwait Student Center and a new competition gymnasium. The ceremony included remarks from Principal Tim Petersen and President of the Board of Directors Theresa Bramanti.
Over 150 students, alumni, parents, staff, and community leaders attended the ceremony. Bishop Vincent M. Rizzotto, auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, presided over the blessing ceremony and groundbreaking.
“Today, we are honored to remember Fr. Joe Crosthwait at Pope John XXIII High School. In 2000, he played an integral role in the establishment of the school, and his enthusiasm for Catholic education was infectious,” says Theresa Bramanti.
As the Katy area continues to grow, many more families have expressed interest in the dedicated, high-quality educational environment that comes with Catholic secondary schooling. As the only Catholic high school in West Houston, Pope John XXIII strives to educate the whole student – mind, body, spirit, and imagination.
“We are very grateful that we have been graced with the community support for such an expansion,” says Tim Petersen. “With this expansion, we believe we will be able to increase our enrollment to over 400 students, reaching more and more of our community through our future leaders.”
