Ladies Night at Sixty Vines brought back lots of familiar faces from over the years and future Cardinals!

So much love filled the room with moms, daughters, and friends wining and dining. 🍷♥️

Can’t wait to see you next year!


Matt Butschek ‘12 stopped by for a visit!

Matt is moving to Virginia to work for Noblis. While at JPII, he was a member of speech & debate, theatre, and improv troupe. Mrs. Tuck remembers honey from his family farm and even still had a picture of him as a student! 🎭

He has seen the world since he last stopped by. Matt was featured in the Associated Press for his unique quarantine experience. Read more about how Matt’s experience will always be “one of the coolest of his life”. 🌊🐠🏝

Lauren ‘16, Mitchell ‘18, and Lindsey ‘20 noticed Mr. Eldridge with his grandkids and had to snap a picture. 😍💙


Brendan Baker ‘15 in the HOUSE. 👏

🏀 From JPII basketball to the court at the University of Tampa, he came back to see Coach Evans! Now Brendan works at the Oklahoma City Thunder on the sidelines crunching numbers on their data analytics team. 📈
