I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

Confirmed in the Spirit

On Friday night, 19 young men and women became empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation. It was a night that was a long time coming - it took a lot of preparation (by both the catechists and the students) and a lot of prayer.

And it was absolutely wonderful.

During the Rite of Confirmation, I was blessed to read the names of my students to the Bishop (see picture below). I was so proud of each of them.

A few parents came up to me to thank me and let me know how their children have grown in their faith this year. It was affirming to hear, and it gave me great hope for the future of our Church.

Let us continue to pray that these young people continue to be guided by the Holy Spirit throughout their lives. May they make wise choices and be filled with courage to do what is right in the eyes of God.
