Our theme for this year is “Live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness, righteousness and truth.” Taken from St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians, this scriptural reference provides us with a daily reminder and invitation to live our lives in accordance with the Gospel message.
During our opening of the school year assembly on Tuesday morning, I asked the students, “Who is the light?” Before I had the opportunity to call on one of the children, a kindergarten cried out enthusiastically, “Jesus.” Isn’t it ironic that with the entire school community gathered, it was one of the youngest who simply wasn’t able to contain his exuberance. Yet that is how we are called to respond to the love and presence of God in our lives – with a profound sense of gratitude and awe that compels us to share the story with others. And this is what makes a Catholic school environment so entirely unique, for it is a place where the children encounter Christ each day and are inspired to share the light of His truth.
Thank you for choosing All Saints for your family. We are delighted that you are part of our community and look forward to a year of abundant blessings for our students and community!
