Celebrating Your Parish
By S. Georgia Kitt
Catholic Schools benefit all year long from the religious example, prayers, guidance and support that parishes provide. I believe many of us, as women religious, can say that the example of the faithful parishioners in the pews helped to foster our vocations. The example of our parents, their faith and the importance placed on the sacraments, liturgy and devotions at a young age left their mark. The participation in parish and outreach activities fostered our desire to serve. During Catholic Schools Week, I suggest that we thank our parish communities for the patterns they modeled for us, making God central in their lives. We remember you with our prayers! Young and old, thank you for living your faith in prayer and service, liturgy and life.
