Update from Florida, Sept. 14

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Jesuit High School of Tamp and its families have fared about as well as could have been hoped. As of Thursday, Sept. 14, school administrators have not heard of any families who suffered unusual distress. The Jesuit Community is also safe. The high school will resume classes on Friday. 

The school will begin with an all-school convocation and prayer. Father Richard Hermes, SJ, wrote to faculty and staff, "As you begin each class with prayer tomorrow, encourage the students to give thanks to God for their many blessings, but also to lift up in prayer those still suffering from Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Following today’s feast of the Triumph (Exaltation) of the Cross, tomorrow’s feast day is Our Lady of Sorrows, a commemoration of Mary’s sorrowful heart at the foot of the Cross. May the Blessed Virgin of Sorrows draw near to all in our state who are experiencing anguish and loss. May her sorrowful heart teach us to show compassion to those in need."

There was significant damage in the neighborhood around the school, with an overwhelming amount of debris, and much of the area is still without electricity. Other special needs include students and families without power or in potential flood areas and some families still out of town or having transportation difficulties within the city.
