Fully Alive and Ready for Transformation

Welcome back to school and a year filled with brand new opportunities and graces! 

As you look around your classrooms notice the clean white boards!  They have been thoroughly cleared and cleaned and are ready to have new lessons, new outlines, new math problems written on them.

Hopefully everyone of us is coming back to school refreshed, excited and eager to enter into new learning experiences!  In the words of a wise Saint from the early Church, Saint Irenaeus, we are  coming back "full of life," and ready for transformation and new growth.

For the Joy and the Glory of God is a HUMAN BEING FULLY ALIVE.
