Walking Together and A Horizon of Hope

Walking Together bulletin board 2015

Every morning I walk into school and I am reminded of all the wonderful events that have occurred throughout out the school year.  As you walk into our school office, the first thing you see is a ‘living’ bulletin board of how we have beenWalking Together staples Walking Together this school year.  Walking Together was our theme from our Faith Plan this school year.  Pope Francis said, “I want to ask you a favour…I want to ask you to walk together, and take care of one another”.  All year we have been trying to “live justly, love tenderly, walk humbly with God” (Micah 6:8).  If you look at our ‘living’ bulletin board we surely enjoyed our year and truly did walk together.  Thank you to Mrs. Kraemer, our teachers, and all our students for building it.

Next year, our theme is A Horizon of Hope.  Pope Francis said,

“Today amid so much darkness, we need to see the light of hope and be men                 and women that bring hope to others.  To protect creation, to protect every                     man and woman, to look upon them with tenderness and    love, is to open up                 a horizon of hope.”

We are also reminded of the words of Jesus, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9).  Hope is central to our community as our vision statement reads, “A safe and caring, Christ- centered community of hope and learning.”  Just as I am proud of the many acts of Walking Together on our ‘living’Woman in worship position bulletin board; I cannot wait to see the many acts of hope as we strive to bring A Horizon of Hope to Our Lady of the Assumption School.
