From the Superintendent...
Now that Catholic Schools Week is over for 2021, I would love to see us all really take time to restore our spirits through reflection and prayer.  A Parker Palmer quote that is so important to remember,:

“Self-care is never a selfish act - it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others.” 

In the “yes!” each of you offer to your communities, it is important that you fill up your own tank so that we can be all that God has called us to be for this time.  I don’t have any clever recommendations to make this happen, other than to say we need to be intentional. 

Please know that each of you remain in our prayers of love and gratitude.

Kristin and the OCS Team
