Friends has invested over $5,000,000 in a professionally managed principal endowment helping to insure the future of Catholic education in Jefferson County.
Each year Friends of Shawe and Pope John Schools, Inc. requests a Mass for the friends and relatives of individuals who have been remembered with a donation to Friends. We honor all who have left memorials to Friends through the years, especially those memorialized during the past year.
Endowment growth chart
Thanks to a generous donation from the estate of Paul and Joy Buchanan, last year Friends made possible a long-time dream at Pope John: two adjoining kindergarten classrooms with a separate bathroom were built next to the cafeteria. And, from a bequest by Father Hilary Meny, former pastor and loyal supporter of the Shawe band program, Friends provided $10,000 in matching funds for band uniforms and a new stage curtain!
Friends of Shawe and Pope John, Inc. is located in the Catholic Community Center next to St. Patrick Church. Our office is in the lower level and parking is available in the back. We are typically open Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:00-5:00 but will be glad to meet you at any time requested.
