As we reflected on Christ’s Passion and Resurrection earlier this month, I paused in particular gratitude for the incredible persistence of our students, parents, faculty, and staff over these past few weeks. They have rallied in a such a remarkable way to ensure that the standard of education our boys receive is unchanged - if not emboldened - by our present circumstance.
I know Holy Week looked different for all of us this year, but I was so pleased to share experiences during the Triduum with you - from Stations of the Cross to Easter Sunday Mass. We have stayed united as one connected community, a fact that brought some solace when we received Governor Baker's decision to keep schools closed through the remainder of the academic year on Tuesday.
While we are unsurprised and understanding of the decision, it is obviously extremely disappointing. We know the path forward is filled with challenge and uncertainty in the days, weeks, and even years to come. But we also know that the young men of BC High will be there to serve and to lead in every different field. We are blessed to witness their fortitude, particularly our great Class of 2020.

In this time of social distancing and waiting, I am reminded of the words of
Rev. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ to "trust in the slow work of God." I will continue to pray for the health and safety of you and yours - and I ask that you keep our students in your hearts as they finish out this year in a new way.
