We’d like to share this beautiful reflection by the parent of one of our eighth graders who is graduating today. Her prayers are ours too as this wonderful group of young men and women embark on the next chapter in their lives:
This picture was taken of us as Breyton and I crossed a finish line at a recent race. It stirs in me many emotions tonight, as I ponder tomorrow's 8th grade graduation from SEAS.
For a child who has been in Catholic school all his/her life, it is the c...ulmination of childhood years of faith filled learning, sacrifice, scholarship, community service, joy, sorrows and daily prayer, both in words and in actions. It is the celebration of this experience and it is the venturing into the world that lies beyond parochial school.
While it is on the one hand very liberating from the rules of uniforms, traditions, and high expectations, it is also a poignant time of reflection. Reflection on what we hope has been instilled deeply in their minds and souls. The love of Christ in all that we say, do and are. That we have a purpose. That we are free to express our honor and praise for the Great sacrifice that God made when He gave His only Son to humanity for our salvation. That we shall have faith and trust in God, through all that life brings our way.
I think about the message I want to give to my son. I say to him that through the years, amongst your family, friends and teachers, you learned about God’s grace in the sacrament of reconciliation and that sin, atonement and forgiveness are inherent in our humanity. In receiving the gift of the Eucharist, you learned how much Jesus loves us personally and individually, by providing His nourishment for our soul. In confirmation, you affirmed the beliefs that have been presented to you by examining your personal relationship with God, and accepting His love and wisdom as you enter young adulthood. You were blessed to do this in your daily life, your academic studies and amongst those who share in this belief and are invested in your success. You were guided and mentored by those who share this same love of Christ.
The picture shows how much he has grown, how strong and fearless he looks. How happy he is in his accomplishment. And me, right behind him, always there to support him as I will always be.
My prayer for these young men and women is that they remember all that has been taught them. That they make decisions that are informed by their experiences in Catholic school and within their families. That they look back on these years, and cherish the wonderful memories, friendships and successes, appreciate the guidance and wisdom of those who mentored them, and learn from the challenges we all have in our lives. God bless our children.
Another favorite SEAS tradition! As our 8th graders prepare to graduate this week, their PreK buddies treat them to a fun breakfast. Every SEAS class is paired with a "buddy" class - a wonderful way for our students to mentor each other and build a sense of community across the different grade levels.
Congratulations to SEAS graduates Sean and Iliana, current Salpointe students, for becoming Eucharistic Ministers! We are proud of your continued faith and service.
Do you know a SEAS graduate who is doing great things? Please let us know!
We celebrated a beautiful all-school Easter mass this morning, including the commissioning of five Lancers into the Extraordinary Ministry of Eucharist (EME). Thank you Sean, Eric, Jennifer, Iliana, and Grace for ministering to the community in such a special way! ✝️
Congratulations to SEAS graduate Claire Conger! We are proud of you, Claire!
Congratulations to Salpointe senior Claire Conger '17 who has been named a finalist for the AIA Scholar Athlete of the Year Award.
