It is the end of another school year... and that sounds so normal doesn’t it. Well, we did make it to the end of an amazing year at Our Lady of Lourdes. The children worked hard, learned many new skills and strengthened their faith, and interacted with teachers and friends. We found a way to make an extraordinarily difficult year into a very successful year, much like many that have come before. The fact that we were able to do this during a pandemic is due to the support of our families, the strength and dedication of our teachers, and the resilience of our students. Every one of us should be very proud of what we have accomplished this year and we should remember to thank God for being with us every step of the way, guiding us, giving us strength and hope.
This summer I pray that each of the outstanding students and their families, as well as the exceptional teachers and staff, will spend many days enjoying family and friends, praying and going to Mass, and most of all remembering to be grateful for the many blessings that God fills our lives with every day. We are coming out of difficult times, and there may be difficult times to come, but we can handle all things when we put our faith in God and we use our talents and gifts to support and encourage one another.
Some things to reflect on as we close this year. There have been so many positive moments at OLOL and so many things that have made this year successful. This year we:
As we look to next year:
May God go with you this summer!
Yours in Christ
