Growing up I was blessed to attend a Catholic Elementary school. As the Pastor at Sacred Heart since 2018, I cannot tell you how pleased I am that our beautiful parish has a school! What a blessing to watch our kids grow in knowledge and virtue with all things rooted in Christ.
We hear this in Psalm 8:2: “Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” That is what I have experienced at our Friday School Masses and regular visits to the classrooms.
My favorite response to a question was when I asked: “What does it mean when we say that we believe in Jesus?”. One student replied this way: “To believe in Jesus means to believe He has done wonderful things before and that He will do wonderful things for me.”
Here is a faith and a hope that we all need to grow ever stronger in our own lives!
