There are no school related COVID cases to report today. However, we did have a couple students that were considered close contacts and will need to be quarantined. Please pray for a speedy recovery for these individuals affected by this development.
Today after Mass, Fr. Robb Jurkovich informed me that Fr. Emmett Norden has been in OSF St. Francis Hospital since Wednesday, October 21st. He had been diagnosed with COVID on Sunday, October 18th. His condition has worsened and he has been moved to the ICU.
Please keep Fr. Norden in your prayers. He is a dear personal friend, a friend to many in our community and has been a faithful servant of God. He also really loved this school and all the students and staff in it.
