The great gift we have in our school... Father Tony, 01/28/2018
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This weekend marks the beginning of Catholic Schools Week. It is an opportunity to
celebrate the great gift that we have in Catholic education. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops says the following about this week;
“During Catholic Schools Week the Catholic community takes time to recognize and support parents in the fundamental and inalienable right to choose Catholic Schools to support the faith formation and excellent education for their children.
Catholic schools have a rich history in supporting the work of ongoing evangelization of the Catholic community in the United States. For more than two centuries Catholic bishops, pastors and parents have educated children in parish and private schools with the intention of offering the life-giving Word of the Gospel in an environment that shows respect for the human person, the virtues of good citizenship and academic excellence.”
We are so blessed to have a great Catholic school right here in our parish. With our dedicated principal, staff and parent leadership, we are providing an environment that delivers a first-class education combined with formation in our Catholic faith. We are in the business of forming saints!
We have a lot to be thankful for, so let’s thank God for the great gift we have in Catholic Education and especially in Our Lady of the Lake School. Our Lady of the Lake … pray for us!
