Learning to be Magnanimous
Our Holy Father, Pope Francis addressed the importance of Catholic education on June 7 when he received students from Italy and Albania in the Paul VI Audience Hall.
“School is one of the educational environments where one grows by learning how to live, how to become grown-up, mature men and women. … Following what St. Ignatius teaches us, the main element in school is learning to be magnanimous … This means having a big heart, having a greatness of soul. It means having grand ideals, the desire to achieve great things in response to what God asks of us and, precisely because of this, doing everyday things, all our daily actions, commitments, and meetings with people well. [It means] doing the little everyday things with a big heart that is open to God and to others.”
Come and pay us a visit. We would love to share our school with you and answer any questions you might have. Our theme for this 2016-2017 school year is: “One in the Body of Christ.” Together, in unity and love for one another, we celebrate our uniqueness and our many gifts and talents.
