As we begin this new school year, we gather once again as your community of believers.
We thank you for the energy and spirit that you renewed in us through the summer months.
We thank you for the time to enjoy our families and friends and to reflect on what is important in our lives.
Let this year be marked by enthusiasm and love, so that with the inspiration of your Spirit,
we may continue to grow in our faith.
Help us to fulfill your hope for us with honest intentions and works of faith.
Let us be gentle with ourselves and bring laughter, joy and love to others.
We ask this in your name.
I love being at St. Pius. I have been a certified teacher for kindergarten through eighth grade since 1978, and I have really enjoyed my job as a junior high English teacher for over the past twenty years. It’s a privilege to help prepare sixth, seventh and eighth graders for high school. My own two sons and two daughters got a wonderful foundation from St. Pius and now my grandson is following in the family tradition. I feel truly blessed.
