Wow. We learned a lot in our first full hybrid week. We thank you for your patience as we worked getting our virtual students out of waiting rooms and balancing teaching virtual and in person. We are still working out our process and would love your feedback so we can continue to grow.
We are all in this together, firmly rooted NO MATTER WHAT!

25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay.
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new.
And yet it is the law of all progress
that it is made by passing through some stages of instability—
and that it may take a very long time.
And so I think it is with you;
your ideas mature gradually—let them grow,
let them shape themselves, without undue haste.
Don’t try to force them on,
as though you could be today what time
(that is to say, grace and circumstances acting on your own goodwill)
will make of you tomorrow.
Only God could say what this new spirit
gradually forming within you will be.
Give Our Lord the benefit of believing
that his hand is leading you,
and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself
in suspense and incomplete.
Prayer of Teilhard de Chardin
Saint Monica, PRAY FOR US!!!
