A Note from Our President Fr. Peter Pabst, S.J.:
 
I saw my transplant surgeon at Stanford, Dr. Shizuru recently. This was the 102 day conference and an update on where I am in the healing process. She had a great report for me! More than 99% of the bone marrow in my body is not my diseased marrow but instead my brother George's healthy marrow. She knows I work in education so she gave me a gold star and a smiley face for the progress. I am so grateful for this report, the care I've received, and the love and prayers that have been offered for my healing. I'm not out of the woods on all this, but this is best result I could hope for. I'm looking forward to getting back to Cristo Rey San José!

Thanks for your support!
Love and Prayers,
Peter

An Exciting Lenten Season!

Spring is in full swing here at Cristo Rey San José, and we have many exciting updates to share! 
 

Lenten Drive Raises Over $1,300 for Jesuit Refugee Services!

At CRSJ, we are men and women for others. During this Lenten Season, we reflected on our blessings and prayed for those without. We also participated in a Lenten Drive, raising money for those people less fortunate than ourselves.  Our Lenten Drive was a huge success! Students and staff raised over $1,300 for the Jesuit Refugee Service supporting the education of Syrian refugees. We are so proud of our students who continue to show their dedication to service to others. 

 
What is your Lenten promise? Many people choose to donate more to charity as part of their Lenten giving. Make Cristo Rey San José part of your Lenten Promise this year!
