Our History

Enriching Student Lives

For a long time, St. Petersburg had only one Catholic school. Seventy-five children from the beaches traveled the ten miles daily to St. Paul’s School. Fr. O’Donoghue  wanted a school with eight classrooms, a kitchen and cafeteria, a convent and a rectory. Ground was broken for this new building project in the Spring of 1951. Fr. O’Donoghue was a very creative fundraiser. He devised gimmicks to earn money for the new school classrooms. When he had determined the cost of each classroom, he divided the amount by the number of students per room and ended up by selling “squares” of the classrooms for $250. St. John’s School opened its doors in September, 1951, with 300 students.
