Dear Families of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School,

Every month, our school focuses on a character trait. For the month of August, we examined the trait of Reverence. This week, I reminded the students of the definition, and meaning of, reverence. With parent partnership being a hallmark of Catholic education, I want to share these character traits with you each month so you can also discuss these traits in your home. We learned that reverence is deep respect and love for our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. This love is shown through our attitudes and behavior. This is something we show all the time as we live out this year’s school theme: “Love One Another”. We especially show reverence during prayer and at Mass. When all-school prayers are lead over the intercom, or when prayers are said in class before tests, lunch or snack, we all stop --- teachers and staff included --- as we remember our purpose and show our gratitude to God. Reverence also means actively participating in the Mass. We are all called to sing, speak our responses, receive the Eucharist properly, kneel and stand quietly and truly listen to what is being said to us in Scriptures and the homily. This is our first character trait because it is the most important. May God help us to always be reverent as we show our gratitude for His majesty and see His image in all whom we encounter.

Only by His Grace,

Veronica Tucker
