From January 30th through February 4th, St. Edward the Confessor Parish School will be celebrating annual Catholic Schools Week. During this week, our students will be focusing on their appreciation for the many qualities (and many people) that make a Catholic education a special blessing and an advantage for life.
We can be justifiably proud that our parish has a large and vibrant school. There are many reasons for this. We have a large number of wonderful students, from St. Edward the Confessor and from San Felipe de Jesús; and our highly qualified and dedicated teachers and staff are guiding them in the process of learning. The school’s Catholic identity is the heart and soul of everything that happens here. When the students participate in Mass on Friday mornings, it is clear that they are fully engaged. This involvement in the life of faith continues across the curriculum and within the family life of every student.
I am sure everyone would agree that our parish must look to the future and provide for the future. Our young people are the future. Thanks to God and His loving Providence, our parish is able to provide a fine Catholic education for the Church of the future. As we thank God for this gift, we remember that all of us continue to be students. God continues to teach us all; and it’s important to apply the motto of our school to our own lives. Like our students and their teachers and administrators, all of us are “Always Learning.”
