Common Table

In his address to the Sixth World Meeting of Families Pope Benedict XVI stated,

“The family is an indispensable base for society and for peoples, as well as an irreplaceable good for children, worthy of coming into life as a fruit of love of the parents’ total and generous surrender. The family occupies a primary place in the education of the person.”
With this exhortation about the sanctity of the family, both of our high schools hosted Communion Breakfasts during the Lenten season.

The Communion Breakfast is one of our finest traditions. It is one of the few times during the course of the school year that parents, students, and teachers can gather as a school community and share in faith and friendship. It is precisely this common faith that unites us in “one heart and one mind.”
