Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. — Colossians 3:12-14
During Catholic Schools Week, it has become our tradition to spend one evening celebrating what our students have learned about virtue. This year, our Virtue Night took place on Thursday, February 4th. We began with a prayer service in our chapel. Deacon George led us in song and then spoke about Colossians 3:12-14, in which St. Paul urges us to live in virtue. After closing with prayer, we all listened to our preschool sing a beautiful song. Then parents and other guests were invited to visit several of the classrooms where students had prepared a variety of presentations.
Each year, we are so blessed by the many heart-felt ways our students come up with to show us how they are trying to live closer to Christ. Thank you, parents and guests, for coming to enjoy this special event with us, and thank you, students, for all you are doing to grow in virtue.
