At the beginning of Lent, my wife and I attended the Church of the Ascension all school Mass on Ash Wednesday. As we were waiting for the service to begin, our children were entering the Church as one family, devoted to Christ.

At that moment, I was reflecting on the Ascension of Jesus stained glass art and enjoying the peaceful assembly of our parish without mobile phones, media, pop stars or commercialism. Life is moving so quickly and it’s easy to fall into the typical human race to acquire stuff and check off our endless to do list.

“O Angel of God, my guardian dear.”

So begins the familiar prayer that many of us have prayed since we were children. We ask our guardian angels to watch over us and to be always at our side, especially in times of crisis.

Here at the Catholic Education Foundation, we have a group of generous and caring young professionals (ages 21 to 40s) — the CEF “Futures” — who are committed to lending a hand to our students’ guardian angels by promoting the mission of CEF.

The Catechism notes: “The whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful help of the angels.”  I cannot help but reflect upon that statement and how appropriate it is to CEF’s Guardian Angel Fund.

I learned more than reading, writing, and arithmetic by attending a Catholic High School in the Archdiocese of Miami in the ‘90s. The faculty, such as my theology teacher, Father Ron, kept me close to the faith, not only in the religious sense, but he also taught me how to persevere. Our dean of discipline, Dean Lefler, well, enforced the "rule of law." I believe the 4 years I spent attending a Catholic High School brought me closer to my faith and made me more resilient.

I am a product of Catholic education, having first attended Curé of Ars (K-8) and then Bishop Miege High School.  I have grown as a child of God with my peers and because of my Catholic education, I am continuing to live out my faith each day. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma in 2014, I knew that I would come back to Kansas City in search of a teaching job in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. I was fortunate enough to teach at Curé of Ars for two years, but there was something still missing.
