Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We are privileged to celebrate Catholic Education
Week with our Archbishop this weekend. With him
we affirm our call to participate in Jesus'mission
to "proclaim the Gospei to every creature".
Through Catholic education we fulfi11 this mission.
We teach Jesus Christ, his life and messages to
our children and form them in the values and
precepts of our God. In our sharing and living in
the love of Jesus we lead our students to a faithful
living of the teachings of Jesus. In our efforts to
iive as a community we manifest to them the
loving, compassionate, just and forgiving character
of our God. IN the life of St. Paul we are
encouraged to continue in our work for our
personal conversions and the conversion of the
wor1d. "Repent and believe in the Gospel" is John's
strong message to us. Repentance is a turning
away from sins. It is a choice that we make in our
desire to be closer to God. Let us trust in God's
love for us. Our repentance is our response to his
invitation of 1ove. We all desire that we can offer an
environment where our children can me formed
and attuned to a spirit of love and righteousness.
We want them to not only hear about Jesus but
also to experience him through a community of
faithful believers. Let us journey to buiid such
kind of community, first by turning our hearts to
Jesus and reassessing our way of living.
Are rve attuned to God ourselves? Is our way of
living reflective of the values that Jesus has taught
