Holy Redeemer Parish School of Religion (grades 1-8) acts as a support for the students and families of the parish as they live out their Baptismal call and give witness to the Good News in word and deed. It is the desire of the program to incorporate the students and their families into the faith life of the parish community.
Congratulations to all the graduates in our company! The prayers and blessings of the whole parish go out to all of you, especially the twenty-two students graduating from our own elementary school. In late January when energies began to flag, I remarked to a group of them that while individual class days might seem slow going, the passage of an entire year proceeds quickly. Here we are at the end of yet another school year. Those of us who are a bit older have acquired a bit of wisdom about the passage of time: It is best not to try and live too far in the future; everyday that’s given is a day worth living. That is at least some of what Jesus is talking about when he wishes us resurrected life–being fully alive in the present. Students sometimes make the mistake of having in view only the finish line, when in fact embracing the challenge and enjoyment of the process itself often brings us the most joy. And so, as those in our family and parish complete one phase of their education, we urge them to begin the next phase–be it high school, college, graduate studies, technical training–as those who are alert each day to the blessings of learning about oneself and this wonderful world of ours. Time is among one of God’s greatest gifts; we all should use it well.
