Even now, says the Lord, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning...for God is slow to anger and rich in kindness. Joel 2:13 Español

Keeping Up With Your Faith

This page is where post the essays written by our 7th graders. This year their topic is what would they like to say to our retiring bishop or what would they like to say to our in-coming bishop (Bishop Barnes will retire in June 2020). These are the same essays that I put in my weekly parent letter, but they are so good I also make them available here as well. (Update: We now know our Coadjutor bishop is Bishop Alberto Rojas, former auxiliary bishop of Chicago. He will take up residence in our diocese in February 2020.)
You can also read the short reflections I put on the 'Five Minutes With Francis' page. Find the weekly parent letter under 'Parents/note to parents' or 'News and Announcements' on the main page. Five Minutes With Francis is under Spiritual Life.
I also add posts to the school's Instagram page. You can click on the link at the bottom of the main page.
Thank you.
