All Saints Catholic School was thrilled to welcome Laura Theissen, the author of the newly published book, “Cuthbert: The Eagle Who Found His Wings,” to All Saints Catholic School on Thursday, February 1st. This special author visit took place as part of our Catholic Schools Week celebration!
Mrs. Theissen, a former All Saints school parent, recently published this inspiring tale of a majestic American bald eagle who loves to swoop and fly above the clouds. Then one day, his life changes, and through adversity, he learns the power of God’s love and grace and what it really means to soar.
Those who love our All Saints Eagle mascot Cuthbert are sure to be engaged by this heartwarming story. Cuthbert has an extra special place in the hearts of the Theissen family. When the author’s son Lucas was in sixth grade at All Saints, he won a contest to name our eagle mascot. Lucas selected the name Cuthbert after learning about St. Cuthbert and his efforts to protect birds and wildlife.
