Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year! After spending the summer in an empty building preparing for the new school year, I am so excited to have the faculty and students back in the building. The sounds of laughter, conversations, and watching friendships reconnect have been such a delight to witness as we begin our new school year.
Our theme for the school year is, “Join Hands with Christ to Build a Better World”. The faculty and students are going to be focusing on the Corporal Works of Mercy this year as we continue to work on the Year of Mercy.
For the month of May, we will be working on the virtue of patience. This is most fitting because we enter the time of the school year where we need patience the most. We are getting anxious for summer to begin, we are finishing up assignments for school, we may be getting frustrated with some people, and we may struggle finding time to fit everything into our already busy schedules. I encourage us all to work on the virtue of patience this month as we end the school year and celebrate all the successes we have worked on and achieved.
