NCSW 2017: Celebrate Students

ÒDo not be satisfied with partial truths or reassuring illusion. Welcome an increasingly full comprehension of reality in your study É doing this requires the humility to listen, and a far-sighted vision.Ó Ð Pope Francis

Daily Scripture
Hebrews 12:1-4

Jesus challenges us to run the race and to let go of the things that hold us back. Today we pray for our students that they can trust God to help them overcome the hurdles that life gives them so that nothing holds them back from learning and being the best they can be.

Schools celebrate students during National Catholic Schools Week by encouraging students to reflect on the benefits of Catholic education and how the grounding in faith, knowledge and service it provides will help them throughout their lives.

SUGGESTIONS:
¥    Donate educational materials for underprivileged students.

¥    Help tutor other students in subject areas that you excel in. 
¥    Parents: Recognize your childÕs academic efforts and accomplishments. Remind them that their hard work has not gone unnoticed.
