John, Principal of Schools. “Anyone who sees the value of an education that joyfully leads our young people to truth and knowledge should be moved to give on November 11. Together, we will keep our Cabrini Catholic School strong and accessible to any family seeking the Downriver’s school of choice for their children.”
