This month and the next are all about looking beyond ourselves and recognizing the needs of others. We launched our season of Thankfulness with the Robin Hood Days canned food drive, challenging each class to raise 8,000 cans for the drive. We encourage each family to contribute and ask others (friends, family, neighbors) to contribute to our drive.
Caroline Martine ’19, in her Call to Worship this past Wednesday (All Saints Day Mass), spoke of her admiration for Blessed Father Stanley Rother’s example of living our faith. In the Call to Action, Sophie Chier ’19 challenged each of us to “give of ourselves in all aspects of our lives.”
Catherine McAuley (our Foundress) said, “Our divine Savior’s example should be before us under all circumstances, particularly in exercising charity towards our neighbor” (Practical Sayings, pages 4 – 5). As a school, we have embraced the Mercy charism and a “can-do,” practical attitude toward the suffering of those in need. Thank you for supporting our school’s mission and blessing us with your daughters. We are Thankful.
