Our school is now on March Break for two weeks. This year’s Break began just after acknowledging our ‘dusty’ human condition on Ash Wednesday. Beginning the Lenten season by going on March Break feels oxymoronic. How can we reconcile the sacrificial theme of this season with the call to take a break, relax, and rest up?!
Our School recently launched the public portion of its Dare to Be Capital Campaign. It happened on Valentine’s Day, and we went out of our way to talk about how much love has been shared by our community.
You would think that at Sacred Heart, we would have had enough of the heart symbolism. But no, we embraced Valentine’s Day in all it’s pink-papered, red-hearted glory. And while we know some people love Valentine’s Day we also know a good many who hate it. But, we think any day that reminds us life is really about love is a good day. Love makes the world go ‘round after all.
