Testimonials

 

When I was young and attended Saint James, it was a place of peace and nourishment for me, so I am sending you a small donation to help you carry out this Saint James tradition. I know you will use these funds to carry out the spirit of the school and help some needy children.

Cabrini was definitely my home away from home. It has played a tremendous role in the woman I am today. My teachers always pushed me to be all that I was able to be.

 

Monet Walker

Class of 2001, St. Frances X. Cabrini Elementary School

 

I am grateful for the education that my children earned here. I have many fond memories of the children I taught, and every so often I see one of them who reminds me of a special event. All these memories I will forever cherish.
