It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of Sister Judy Peters, former St. Lawrence Martyr principal. She selflessly and graciously served our school for over twenty years until 2004. Sr. Judy grew up with Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger, and Hop Along Cassidy. She was born and educated in Los Angeles and graduated from St Mary’s Academy in 1956.
She was grateful for the “inspiring women who taught strong values by their example and lives.”
Judy ministered for many years as teacher and administrator. Countless children would say that Judy helped them to “have the best possible Catholic education and have fun at the same time.” On the occasion of her golden jubilee, she summed up her emotions by borrowing the words of one of her kindergarten students: “I’m happier here than I’ve ever been before!” We trust that Judy, who helped so many people to experience what she did – that “Life is good” – is now home with God and eternally happier there than she has ever been before.

May she rest in peace

Let us pray...

We commend you, our dear Sr. Judy to almighty God, and entrust you to your Creator.

May you rest in the arms of the Lord who formed you from the dust of the earth.

May holy Mary, the angels and all the saints welcome you now that you have gone forth from this life.

May Christ who was crucified for you, bring you freedom and peace.

May Christ who died for you admit you into his garden of paradise.

May Christ, the true Shepherd, embrace you as one of his flock.

May he forgive all your sins, and set you among those he has chosen.

May you see your Redeemer face to face, and enjoy the vision of God, forever.

A beautiful life lived by a beautiful lady. Rest In Peace good and faithful servant...

So sad to see this. She was such a help to me during my time as music teacher at SLM..... so many fond memories of her. Rest In Peace, Sr. Judy.

Early Sunday Morning, our St Serra statue was stolen. Some clarification regarding the incident -
1. Two men driving a Chevy HHR - dark color with black rims and sunroof - the car is loaded with stuff. Pack-rat type conditions
2. Incident was at 5:15am not 6:15am as previously reported.
3. Redondo Beach Police have over 10 minutes of video, including the faces of the criminals.
4. Between the school and the parish we have over 20 cameras on the campus that are filming 24/7
5. St Lawrence is fully insured for theft.

Please pray that the criminals are caught.
