Principal’s Message: Week of January 15, 2017
2nd Week of Ordinary Time
Dear St. Luke Families,
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the Presidential inauguration: two nationally recognized days as different as they can be. Well, come to think of it, maybe not!
One day honors the memory of the famous civil rights activist and the other ushers in a new commander-in-chief. 1968 and 2017, while 49 years apart, are landmark years, and both connote controversy, a divided nation, and political and social unrest.
Friends, I firmly believe we are called to use Christian methods in all of our struggles and never give in to the temptation to believe that the end justifies the means. As we work together for justice, let us be ever-mindful of our dignity as the Body of Christ, and use only the weapon of love.
Let us also keep in mind our 6th graders who are at Science Camp this week. They are with other Catholic School Students from Annunciation, St. Anne’s, St. George’s, St. Anthony’s, and St. Bernard’s! During this time together they will develop an appreciation of nature, earth, and science at the beautiful Redwoods in its natural habitat of the Santa Cruz Mountains, as well as walk along the seashore. They may experience ocean beaches and tide pools, an historic brackish marsh, freshwater pond, redwood forest, a unique grove of buckeye, chaparral, wooded mountains and a gorgeous camp setting!
Have a wonderful week ahead!
