During World Youth Day in 2002, Pope John Paul II told the youth: “God is entrusting to you the task, at once difficult and uplifting, of working with him in the building of the civilization of love. “Let the light of Christ shine in your lives,” he said. “Do not wait until you are older in order to set out on the path of holiness. In the quest for justice, in the promotion of peace, in your commitment to brotherhood and solidarity, let no one surpass you.”
Daily Health Check
Friday, February 4, 2022
We are halfway through this school year! Though we are presented with challenges, I want to thank you for your continued support of the school and staff. The registration numbers are encouraging. It means so much to the staff to know that we are all working together for our students.
I also want to commend the staff for their flexibility and willingness to work in ever-changing circumstances. I am blessed to work with such a dedicated group. As always, we are thankful for the support of Father Matthew and to be one of the ministries of the parish.
Yours In Christ,
Mrs. Maria Fonseca
