More About Friends

Friends has over $5,000,000 invested in a professionally managed principal endowment helping to ensure 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.

Recent Gifts from Friends

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!
