Earlier this week as I enjoyed a show of fireworks with my wife and daughter, I found myself thinking particularly about the blessing of our opportunity to worship freely in this country and to educate our children in Catholic schools.
Dr. Vorbach reflects on the readings and homily from the closing Mass, and shares a special farewell for Father Michele Benetti, who heads off to a new assignment next week.
Today is a big day in the life of our school. For the 57th time, a class of students will graduate from Bishop O'Connell and join a long line of alumni who used their O'Connell education as a launching pad for lives lived in service to God and others all around the world.
Any success that Bishop O'Connell has during a given school year relies on so many variables, including the gifts of time and talent offered by volunteers, very often parents and alumni. We are blessed.
As members of the Class of 2017 celebrate their last regular school day of their high school career, Dr. Vorbach reflects on the mixed emotions that everyone feels at this time of the year. Sad for one chapter ending, but happy for what comes next. God bless the Class of 2017.
