J.M.J. As we conclude National Catholic Schools Week, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all who seek to carry out the Christ-inspired mission of our Catholic schools in our Diocese.
Students and their families . . . administration, faculty and staff . . . bishops, priests, deacons and parishioners . . . religious institutes that have sponsored Catholic schools . . . diocesan leadership . . . volunteers . . . donors both Catholic and non-Catholic . . . the list is significant.
With the mind of Christ and His Church as the backdrop, Catholics schools instruct the intellect and form the will of students. What more considerable contribution to the lives of the students could Catholic schools make?
May Mary, the Mother of the Risen Lord, bless our Catholic schools and all those who are involved in them.
