St. Rose School honors Dr. John and Mrs. Nancy Murphy

BROOKFIELD—The Blooms Benefit was held on Saturday, February 29 at the Fox Hill Inn, Brookfield.  St. Rose School honored Dr. John and Mrs. Nancy Murphy for their dedication to Catholic education and community service.

Dr. and Mrs. Murphy’s four children attended St. Rose School between the years 1992 and 2007. They were extremely active in the school during those years and continue to be active parishioners and community members. Their children went on to Catholic high schools and universities and are all doing well in their careers.

In receiving the award the Murphys spoke so genuinely of their time at St. Rose School—of the wonderful education, the faith-filled environment and the lasting friendships that were forged.

A love of St. Rose School filled the air as parents, past and present, parishioners and community members shared their belief in this education.

St. Rose of Lima Catholic School is a Christ-centered community committed to academic excellence in an atmosphere that nurtures the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and moral development of each child. The dedicated staff partners with families to prepare students to be responsible leaders in a global society by fostering integrity, service and respect. By creating a sense of family where all are welcome, we encourage each child to develop his/her gifts and to become Christ’s compassionate heart and hands in the world. It centers its community of learning around four core values: respect, integrity, academic excellence and service. Its spirituality is fostered through a close connection with St. Rose of Lima Church. Students attend weekly mass and are blessed by the continual presence of Monsignor Robert Weiss and the other parish priests.
