COS WELCOMES BISHOP PERRY
On Tuesday, January 24, Christ Our Savior Catholic School welcomed his Eminence Bishop Joseph Perry for a visit. Our sixth, seventh and eighth grade students sang for the Bishop, our praise dancers eloquently performed and the students thanked the Bishop for his support by writing letters and cards expressing appreciation to him. Together Bishop Perry and Father Ignatius, our Executive Pastor, toured the school stopping in classrooms speaking with the students and teachers about their research projects and math technology programs. The Bishop also observed our eighth grade students in their Science class dissecting fetal pigs and labeling their internal organs. Bishop Perry was quite intrigued with the lesson!!
WHAT A CATHOLIC EDUCATION MEANS TO ME
During Catholic Schools Week, our 8th grade students were asked to reflect upon what their Catholic education has meant to them. Here are some excerpts:
“According to www.usccb.org, Catholic Schools tend to produce more graduates who are more civically engaged, more tolerant for diverse views and have committed to service as adults. The graduates are also more likely to earn higher wages than public school graduates. Catholic school education lights the world and lights my path by preparing me and other students. They prepare us for our future. During our classes, our teachers make sure we are prepared for our tests and have confidence in ourselves.” Kennedy McGhee
“I am thankful to my parents for sending me to a great Catholic school like Christ Our Savior. This Catholic school lights my future by bringing me closer to God and giving me a good education. First, my Catholic school has brought me closer to God because I have doing more spiritual works and corporal works. Since my parents have enrolled me into a Catholic school, I have changed the way I act and feel about other people. Second, the education in a Catholic school has given me hope for the future.”
I will share more thoughts in the weeks ahead!
In Christ’s Love,
