THURSDAY THOUGHTS

We can never thank God enough for all the joy you give us as we rejoice in God’s presence.”
1 Thessalonians 3:9

As we celebrate National Teacher Appreciation Week, I would like to personally take a moment to share my deep gratitude and respect for the teachers and support staff at St. Benedict Catholic School. They unselfishly give of their time, talent, and treasure to carefully nurture the gifts God has given to our students, not only academically but spiritually and emotionally as well. It is an honor for me to serve with all of our teacherministers and staff every day. Thank you for all the parental support given them all through the year.
