Dear OLPS Family,
World Youth Day was held this year in Brazil. At the closing Mass, where over 3 million young people gathered, Pope Francis spoke to the crowd. His words ring true for each of us.
“Here in Brazil, as in other countries, soccer is a national passion. Now, what do players do when they are asked to join a team? They have to train, and to train a lot. The same is true of our lives as the Lord’s disciples.”
“Jesus offers us something bigger than the World Cup,” the 76-year-old pontiff said.
“You are the athletes of Christ,” the Pope said.
At OLPS we are educating our youth to be athletes of Christ, with academic strength, clear moral principles, dedication to service, and an unwavering love of God. You too, can be an athlete of Christ!
As we pause this time of year to Thank God for our blessing, I thank God for each of you,
Sr. M. Suzanne Miller, FMA
