Dear Families,

It is hard to believe we have just 5 more weeks of school left. I am so proud of how the students have adapted to Distance Learning. Although this time has not been without challenges for all of us, there have been beacons of light surrounding us and within us. From seeing the smiles on the students’ faces when they join their meetings, to hearing students share about something they did with their families, to spending time with our families, or receiving feedback from families, all these have been beacons of light for myself and the Mater Dei faculty and staff. As written in John 1:5, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it”. It is more apparent than ever the light that is the Mater Dei community.

With love,
Cristina Torres
