Watching things like this happen in such a short span of time reminds me of the many cogs of a wheel that keep a place running effectively. We each have a role to play, and if one component is lacking the whole institution suffers. I remember how bright and clean the school looked at the beginng of the year last August. The journey has begun to once again bring back that shine.
I offer a word of gratitude to all who are involved in Catholic education--administrators, teachers, support staff, cafeteria personnel, maintenance and janitorial staff, groundskeepers, volunteers, board members, and all who support the work of the Church and the school with your stewardship of time, talent, and financial resources. All of you are vital pieces of the puzzle which allow us to educate and form our young people well. Thank you.
It is my prayer that all of you experience relaxation and refreshment during the summer so that you return next year renewed in mind and spirit. Blessings and peace!
