“Gratitude” A speech for graduation, from the Headmaster.

This newsletter is dedicated to all of those who in one way or another support our Immaculate Heart of Mary School. It is quite obvious to me that without all of your help we could not persevere through the test of time.

I sat up one dark and cold morning trying to come up with an adequate description of the importance of the integral role you play at IHM. It then hit me; I will use the human body.

Work with me, I am a science guy after all.

Above all, the Holy Spirit is the air we all breathe to keep all systems operating. Without that vital breath of life, we would have absolutely no goodness to be celebrating.

The parents can be compared to the heart of our children’s lives that on a daily basis pump goodness into each and every student.

Our benefactors can be compared to the spine holding us up each and every year.

The lay teachers and religious are the brain of the organization that on a daily basis commit themselves to trying to fill our children’s lives with truth and goodness.

If we took away just one of these systems for just a small moment of time, our doors would close and we would cease to exist as a school.

St. Don Bosco once said, “To know that you are young is sufficient reason for me to care for your welfare. I care for you, because you have in your hearts the treasure of virtue.” Your presence whether from near or far proves you too care.

I feel that using the wise words spoken by Saint John Bosco is the ultimate way to end and truly portray the importance of your works in our children’s daily lives.

Do you want to do a good deed, teach the young!

Do you want to do a holy act, teach the young!

Do you want to do a holy thing, teach the young!

Truly now and for the future, among holy things, this is the holiest.
