About the Relationship: Many people are fascinated and curious about the unusual and unprecedented relationship between a former first couple and a school that neither one ever attended. The documentary explains how the relationship began to unfold decades ago when a young Dan Horn wrote to Mrs. Carter and asked to meet her. After a luncheon date in March 1986, the two remained in contact through an occasional exchange of letters.
Beginning in 2005, Horn, then principal at St. Genevieve, began taking students on sojourns to Plains, Georgia. Eventually, St. Genevieve School and many people in the town of Plains became friendly. Citizens from Plains visited the school, including Maranatha Baptist Church pastor Dan Ariail, became part of the faculty for several weeks and taught the Old Testament to students. The faculty and staff of St. Genevieve have been to Plains for three of their annual retreats, the Carters always attending. Student have performed on numerous occasions, most recently the school's jazz band for Rosalynn's 90th birthday in August of 2017.
President Carter has visited St. Genevieve twice. On February 2, 2018, Mrs. Carter will make her second trip to visit the students and staff of St. Genevieve. Become part of this extraordinary friendship; be part of history. Join us for this momentous event.

About the Film: Principal Dan Horn, longtime friend of Rosalynn Carter, requested permission from Mrs. Carter in 2012 for his students to tell her story. It is Horn's fervent belief that Rosalynn is a hero to our world; if you ask him, he'll describe her as a living saint. Numerous groups of students have taken part in the project traveling to Plains to conduct interviews and piece together her story.
In August of 2016, St. Gen alum, Sean See, from the class of 2013, agreed to take on the awesome responsibility of reviewing years of footage and compiling it into a 65 minute film, lovingly titled, Dear Rosalynn.
What makes the documentary truly special is that it is told from the perspective of our Valiant students, a community that Rosalynn has grown to love.
"I'm overwhelmed by this film. It brought back so many memories. I deeply appreciate what you've done with this film. I look forward to coming to see you."

One of the most important building projects in our parish history is now in the making. Not since our parish church was built in 1966 has a monumental project been undertaken. Our parish has grown so much since then and so are our needs. Resources of time, talent and treasure are being asked for, but more than anything else your prayers are vital. All parishioners are asked to pray and make a pledge to the Campaign.
All net proceeds of this event will go to support the Inspiration Building Campaign and is tax deductible.
