Particulars from Principal Nuno
On Saturday, students from our school and members of our parish religious education program will participate in their second First Communion Retreat. I invite our school staff and families to continue to pray for our young people as they take this next step in their relationship with God. The sacrament of First Communion is a powerful step for these young people as they grow in their faith and as they grow in communion with our Church. I am reminded that these young people are the future of our church and of our community. It gives me great hope to imagine how they will impact our world in the future. It also reminds me of the great responsibility we have as a school and as a faith community to provide these young people with a strong faith, with a respect for others, and that they are prepared with the skills necessary to be successful. My prayer is for our students and the members of religious education. May they be blessed and receive God’s grace in a special way as they prepare for their First Holy Communion. May their journey be filled with joy as they grow in a greater understanding of God and a deeper faith in God.
On Monday our students will attend the Mass for Life at St. Martin’s University. The overarching message of the Church’s teaching about life is rooted in the word dignity. God’s creation is a gift, and in as much as we are created by the breath and by the hands of God, each human individual is a gift. The Mass for Life and the events surrounding the Mass will echo the church’s teachings about dignity for all human life.
