Week 3 Wrap-up: A week of learning, praying, serving and loving

Each Friday, we’re sharing a weekly wrap-up highlighting the ways our school communities came together in the last week to pray, to learn, to love and to serve during these days of distance learning.

See below for some of our favorite moments from Week 3.

Our communities find inspiration in holy men and women who have overcome past struggles:

Our schools reach out not only to teach students, but to provide support for parents:


And students at St. Athanasius continue the tradition of Thankful Thursdays by expressing gratitude to some who need it the most right now:


The time that parents have taken to express love for the work of their students’ teachers has been humbling and wonderful:

And of course, the joy in being community continues, as it did during crazy hair day at Sacred Heart:

And finally, the love of families for their school communities–and even for their principals’ dancing skills at St. Mark’s and St. Charles Borromeo–shines:

These are just some of the many ways–visible and invisible–that we have the privilege of continuing to be communities of faith, learning, and love in these challenging times.
