This year, I have received several kind letters from parents expressing how pleased they are with the Catholic schools their children are attending.
The “hot phrase” in education these days is the “whole child.”
One of my favorite Scripture passages is the parable of the talents. It beautifully illustrates the reason why we strive for academic excellence in Catholic schools.
Dear friends of Catholic schools,
Trey (four months, youngest grandchild) and I took a nap together one recent Saturday evening. Trey was in town for his twin cousins’ first birthday.
Since January, I have been assisting Matt Karr and the staff in the archdiocesan office of evangelization and catechesis with the evangelization listening sessions that have been held throughout the archdiocese.
“Christ is the reason for these schools. The unseen but ever-present teacher in our classes, the model of our faculties and the inspiration of our students.”
Catholic schools are by no means perfect, but we are striving each day in every aspect of what we do to make our Catholic faith come alive in our school communities.
Do you ever wonder if what you do makes a positive difference in this world?
