Our History

Fr. Jim Baron came to Pax Christi on August 1, 2012 as Parochial Vicar. In 2013, the parish opened a Catholic preschool named St. Katharine Drexel as a vision that the students would imitate the service attitude that St. Katharine Drexel embodied. The school serves primarily Pax Christi parishioners, but is open to all children from surrounding parishes as well as the community.

In September 2019, St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School opened a kindergarten class and decided to remain a preschool under the leadership of our current pastor, Fr. Andrzej Szczesnowicz, S.T.L. Fr. Andrzej also decided to change the name to reflect that it is a ministry of Pax Christi Catholic Church. Pax Christi Catholic Preschool currently offers a faith-based, rigorous academic education complemented by Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Through a strong Religious-Classical-Environmental Education, students become spiritually, intellectually and morally prepared as stewards who engage the world in service to God and the common good.
