    “Our Confirmation Program was greatly enriched when we held our annual retreat at St. Jude’s Academy of the Arts.  Angie and her staff brought our young people closer to Jesus through their witness, contemporary music ministry, and fun games and activities.  I highly recommend the program.”

    Despite the shortened 3 days that you were at St. Jude’s you guys truly have changed our lives, and left a spiritual mark on our journeys. We miss you guys greatly at St. Jude’s and we will definitely give the clients your regards and greetings!

    Keep the spirit alive, let God lead the way!”

    P.S. Ethan it was all of our idea to write you a note, but it’s Graham’s hand writing! :) Know that we all appreciate the everything you did for us this past week! Especially the card tricks! God Bless!”

    “St. Judes definitely changed my life. You guys taught me so much, and I wish I could live in Toronto just so I could volunteer there all the time. Some of us from the Florida group are going to get together and find a place like St. Jude’s to work at. Thanks for inspiring us to do great things. You are all the most amazing people. I miss you a lot!”
