“You address me as “Teacher” and “Lord”, and fittingly enough, for that is what I am. But if I washed your feet-I who am Teacher and Lord-then you must wash each other’s feet. What I just did was to give you an example: as I have done, so must you do” (Jn 13:13-15)
The celebration of Catholic schools began on January 28th and will continue through February 3rd. The theme for Catholic Schools Week is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” It is during this week that students, parents, and the parish community will experience “a coherent, comprehensive vision of life” with the many activities planned. Also, during this week there will be happenings targeted for our parents and parish community. I invite and welcome you!
What a fantastic way to kick off Catholic Schools Week! A big thank you to Fr. Mike for celebrating a beautiful Mass that focused on the importance of Catholic education, as well as all those who make it special. I would like to thank the Kindergarten, 4th, and 8thgrade students and teachers who did a phenomenal job participating in the liturgy. The choir, led by Miss Claudia did a wonderful job leading the congregation in singing. Our Parent Board members and student ambassadors were very helpful and informative in providing guided tours to prospective families. To the teachers, faculty, staff and students of St. Juliana School, thank you for making our school so special and unique. Our Core Values are alive and permeating throughout our school community.
I want to thank you in advance for your support of the Mardi Gras Gala. Our Gala is in our parish center. I am very grateful for your efforts and support. Your participation in the Gala directly impacts the educational programs that benefit every child in our school.
Let us focus on how we can take time for ourselves and our relationship with God. Time spent for quiet reflection is not a luxury, but an important need for our spiritual growth. May God bless you and draw you closer to Him.
Continued blessings to you and your family,
Mr. Manuel Gonzales Jr. M.A.
