PRINCETON -- What does a Catholic school in the small town of Princeton, Wis., have in common with the large southern city of New Orleans, La.?

St. John the Baptist School in Princeton believes it shares with New Orleans "a great love for our way of life and a desire to preserve it for future generations," says St. John School parent Mary Soda.

"St. John is a nurturing environment, based on Catholic values, respect for life, and serving others. We have small class sizes, high curriculum standards, and more spirit than you can pack into a Mardi Gras Parade," she said.

MADISON -- When Jesus gave Pontius Pilate the testimony of the “noble confession,” that he is the Christ and son of God, Pontius Pilate gave us the symbol for how to reject truth: “What is Truth?”

“That’s our world -- it’s a world very hostile to the noble profession Jesus made and very hostile to the noble confession you and I are going to make,” Bishop Robert C. Morlino said during his homily at the White Mass September 19 at St. Paul’s University Catholic Center in Madison.
