Posted on August 23, 2019 in Impact of Donors, Thank You Notes

Dear CEF,

Thank you for helping my family and for giving them money so that they could pay for me, my brother, and sister to come here to CTK. You love kids and that's why you're doing this and you're helping my school.

Celebration and reflection are two natural reactions to reaching certain milestones in life. Whether it’s a birthday, receiving a sacrament for the first time, or experiencing a significant career accomplishment, achieving a major milestone is cause to rejoice and take stock of where you have been and what’s next on the horizon.

Every year at this time we unite with schools across the nation to celebrate Catholic Schools Week! These days are filled with joy, laughter, service, and prayer. Not unlike a lot of our school days, but this week we intentionally stop to celebrate all the blessings God has showered upon us. We will have themed days, praise and worship services, pancakes breakfasts, guest speakers, guest lunches, prayer services, Masses, rosaries, talent shows, and books fairs. We will collect everything from pennies to mittens to canned goods.

In a recent visit to a fifth-grade classroom at Christ the King School in Kansas City, Kansas, Archbishop Naumann spoke about vocations.

He asked the students to consider where God might be calling them, and got some enthusiastic responses: priest, swim coach, martial arts instructor, teacher.

In the course of the conversation, he found that one student had a very specific vocation in mind. A boy near the back of the classroom raised his hand eagerly and said, “I want to be the archbishop!”

This month marked a new experience for me as a Catholic Education Foundation board member. Through my involvement in CEF, I’ve toured numerous grade schools throughout the Archdiocese. The joy that these schools emanate is unmistakable. On top of the deep Catholic roots that are always evident, it is just a lot of fun to see young kids in their element playing, learning, feeling loved. As the father of a high schooler, I understand that while joy is still there, for teenagers, it is sometimes hiding under a candy-shell of hormone-induced nonchalance.
