St. John is big part of ‘Ennis pride’

This has been an emotional and trying week for the parents of students at St. John Catholic School and for the community as well.
With talk of closing the school being bandied about around town, tensions ran high as solutions were sought. The good thing that came from such a stressful situation, is that the community is aware of the lower enrollment issue facing the school and are now proactively doing their best to turn that around.
There is no doubt that this community loves the St. John school. It has been here for almost 100 years and it is a fixture in this community, so we know that concrete measures will be taken to ensure that the school remains in the community for many years to come. We can be certain of that statement because it has been proven.
Last year when reports were given that the school was in financial trouble the parents and parish members as well as the community rallied behind the school and not only met the financial burden the school was struggling under, they surpassed the funds needed to save the school. The Ennis community has proven time and time again that nothing is impossible when we all get behind a cause and support it.
The school obviously means a lot to parents with children attending there and to members of the parish but make no mistake, it is important to the community as well. We are all behind whatever steps need to be taken to increase enrollment and we are all concerned about the future of the school because that is what a community is about.
In all of the issues the community has faced in the past, people rallied together, volunteered and made sacrifices to see results and that is what we will do again.
If there is any good that comes from adversity, this community finds it and we are proud to be a part of that positive movement, we hope that is always to be said of this community.
