Dear Parents and Students:
Sometimes in life, you have just have to be present and open to the experience. Last night at Sunday Mass, after receiving holy communion and saying some prayers to our Lord Jesus, I observed a young boy with Down Syndrome and his interaction with his Dad.
This little, precious child embraced himself in the arms and face of his Dad so lovingly and without any pretense: it was a beautiful scene - like the scales taken off the eyes of Paul the Apostle, it was as if God was saying to me, that is how I love you and I love all people. We can never forget that our Catholic/religious faith is
not just doctrinal or theological. God calls us into relationship - we call it grace.
I also want to acknowledge a belated happy Mother’s Day to ALL of our
Moms are the glue of most families. Although my Mom has been dead for over seven years, there is never a day that I do not think or remember her with such love and fondness. My mom will always remain one of the most influential women in my life. SJND students: cherish and love your Mom every day of the year.

Athletic Awards Banquet on Thursday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m.
