                       “May the Angels lead you into Paradise!!
         May the Martyrs come to welcome you, and take you to the Holy City:
                          the New and Eternal Jerusalem!!
~Mass of Christian Burial for our dear friend and John Carroll Religion teacher Mrs. Jackie Moeser who
                            was born to Eternal Life last Saturday at age 55.

    Remembering Mrs, Jackie Moeser: We are deeply saddened by the death of our dear friend
       and colleague Jackie Moeser who died last Saturday after a long battle with cancer. Jackie taught
       Religion at John Carroll for eleven years. Most of you have read the emails sent out this week
       and were able to pray with us for this fine teacher. The latest edition of the Principal’s Blog, “On
       Jackie” can be read at: http://www.johncarroll.org/news/detail.aspx?linkid=2852&moduleid=125

      Website of the Week: The John Carroll Campus Ministry page on Facebook has had lots of
       activity over the past four days as students, grads, and faculty members from John Carroll share
       memories of Jackie Moeser. The tributes are incredibly touching and mean so much to Jackie’s
       family and her friends. There are also wonderful postings from those whom Jackie taught at Saint
       Anthony’s School over eleven years ago. Please visit and remember this wonderful lady with us:

       NOTE: You must “LIKE” the John Carroll Campus Ministry page (at the top) to post your own
       comments and memories. We welcome your comments and look forward to reading your stories.

      More Special Intentions: Please Pray with Us: Please pray with us for sister of freshman Billy
       Decker—Morgan, a senior at Fallston High School—who was in a serious car accident last week.

      THANKSGIVING MASS here at John Carroll: Please join us next Tuesday, November 23 as we
       celebrate Thanksgiving!! Mass begins at 9 a.m. in the Gym.

       Special Note: We will be joined by representatives from Catholic Charities and the Our Daily
       Bread Employment Center as we kick-off a pilot fundraiser to benefit the needs of the Our Daily
       Bread ministry. Our sophomores serve the good people of Baltimore as part of their Service
       retreat each year at Our Daily Bread.
      Your Special Intentions: Please let me know if there is ever a need in your family for prayers or
       special support. We are honored to provide assistance with any special situation. Email me at:

    Praying with Us at John Carroll: Parents and Grandparents are welcome to join us each

      This week, a letter concerning enhancements to the financial aid and enrollment process at John
      Carroll will be mailed to each family. Of note is the consolidation of the financial aid deadline for
      all families, new or returning, to January 15, 2011 for their Financial Aid application to be
      complete with SSS. This is a change from prior years. The letter will explain more about the
      process, as well as provide more information relating to contracts for the 2011-2012 school year.
      If you have any questions about the financial aid process, please email Jesse Roberts at

      Tickets are now available in the school store for $10 per person. Come out and support the Class
      of 2011 in the show on Tuesday, 11/23 and Wednesday, 11/24 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.

      By now you should have received your copy of The John Carroll School Annual Report 2009-
      2010. Please take a moment to read through it and see all of the wonderful support that we
      receive each year from you, our parents, and our alumni, past parents and friends. Despite the
      economy, last year broke all records for giving! Can we count on you again to participate this
      year? Parents Rich and Roberta Foard are this year’s Campaign Co-Chairs. If you would like to
      assist with the campaign in any way, please contact Laura Lang, Director of Annual Giving,

       Christopher’s Train Garden - We are very excited that Christopher’s Train Garden will be
       celebrating its 3rd year at Brooms Bloom Dairy Farm. Grand opening events include kids’
       crafts, cookie decorating, prizes and other goodies. We will be open Tuesday through Sunday
       12-8 from November 24th through January 2nd. Also since we’ve been so “good” again this
       year, Santa has agreed to visit every Saturday and Sunday 1-3pm. Mrs. Claus has provided
       some yummy gingerbread cookies to decorate while Santa visits. It really is a fun way to earn
       community service hours. No technical experience required – just a friendly smile to give out
       treats for kids, help out with a craft and keep a watch on little fingers. If your child is interested,
       have your child see Mr. Martin in the Outreach Office for further information.
