New Year, Same You

As I have shared before, it was at Verbum Dei where I first heard the words, "God is delighted by you!" It was such a strange concept- that God would be delighted by ME, with all my faults (I can be a bit stubborn at times), all my shortcomings (I hadn't done as well in my undergrad as I wanted to), all my weird quirks (my fear of dogs, my fear of cats...my fear of anything fury). But the priest kept repeating "God is delighted by you".


As we look toward a new year, it is easy to take stock of all the areas in our lives that need improvement. We make a list of changes that we will make beginning midnight on January 1. For some, that list is so long that we have to declare January a "trial month" and PROMISE to really start in February. As I am sure you know, this can go on all year.


Instead of making a list of our perceived inadequacies, why not take a moment to identify those things that we can do daily to lead us closer to God- things like prayer, meditation, exercise, family time, and yes studying. The desire to be closer to God allows us to focus on our good- and we know whatever we focus on multiplies.


If God delights in us, He would definitely enjoy spending more time with us.


Gratefully,


Dr. OL

Verbum Dei Parents!


I’m excited to announce a new Parent Referral Program sponsored by the Department of Catholic Schools! Effective immediately, any referrals submitted through the referral portal below will get you one step closer to winning these incentives.

Referral Portal: https://catholiced.com/refer/


· Tuition Discount: If your referral enrolls, both you and your referral will receive $100 off tuition, up to the first 100 referred enrollments

· iPad Raffle: Every referral submitted through the referral portal counts as 1 entry into the raffle, 5 winners will be randomly selected

Also, the school whose parents submit the most referrals based on the student population will receive a $3,000 technology grant — so let’s do this together!


A qualified referral counts as a friend, family member, or other acquaintance who has expressed interest in Catholic education. Once you submit a referral, both you and the referral will receive an email confirmation with the next steps.

I encourage you to participate as actively as possible, and please spread the word! Let’s help keep our schools strong and our faith alive. Thank you for all you do!

Dr. OL
