St. John the Baptist School in Howard, part of the GRACE System, recently completed a library renovation.

GRACE stands for Green Bay Area Catholic Education and is a nine-school system that provides excellence in early childhood through eighth-grade education and serves the 23 Catholic parishes within the Greater Green Bay community. The renovation focused on updating the space to maintain a classic look while prioritizing their Catholic identity. This space is now more flexible and usable by parish and school groups, which will allow more functionality and innovation in the future.

The library renovation was made possible by a donation of $30,000 from Dr. Jeremiah Farrell and his wife Jean. They made the gift in honor of his mother, Lulu. An additional $17,000 in funds was raised through matching gifts and fundraising efforts by the school’s Site Advisory Council.To learn more about St. John the Baptist School, visit www.sjbhschool.org.
