JOHNS CREEK—Students and faculty at Holy Redeemer School, in Johns Creek, celebrated its 15th anniversary on Friday, Sept. 5.
Many of the founding faculty members and families were in attendance. Twelve faculty members and six current families have been with the school since its inception.
An all-school Mass was held in St. Brigid Church next door, celebrated by Bishop Luis R. Zarama. Eighth-graders hosted the Mass, providing the music, readings and intentions. Founders came in with the procession.
After lunch, all the students and faculty were treated to a carnival on the school grounds featuring inflatables, games, music and the Gwinnett Braves “Chopper.” Snow cones offered relief from the heat.
Principal Lauren Schell oversaw the day’s events.
“We have been blessed to be a part of this wonderful community for the past 15 years. We are grateful for our founding and present families and staff and look forward to many more years as a community of faith,” she said.
The school opened on Sept. 7, 1999, as a regional archdiocesan school serving families from 14 parishes. Holy Redeemer serves 500 children in kindergarten through eighth grade with a program of faith formation, academics, fine and performing arts and athletics.
