Rejoice and Be Glad for your Reward in Heaven will be Great.
We have been identified by our faith with the King of Salvation. We bear His name, claim His Creed, and proclaim the Good News: that there is a kingdom of righteousness and peace, which is both spiritual and eternal. However, like Jesus, we too will experience opposition. Nevertheless, we should rejoice, for our reward in heaven will be great! God will do so much more than “make it up to us." The Kingdom of God is not a future reality—it is with us, here and now!
May God continue to bless us all.
What is Catholic Virtue Education?
Catholic Virtue Education focuses on teaching students and their families about Catholic virtue as outlined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. While all of the virtues, works, gifts and fruits are intricately intertwined into our Catholic Faith, Catholic Virtue Education at Holy Cross Catholic School focuses on certain aspects each month in order to enhance learning for all students, of all abilities, in all grades.
Each month a new virtue is developed, and the students are involved in defining, discussing and exhibiting that trait in their daily lives. Principal Robin Jo Jensen includes reflections on the month's virtue in her weekly parent letter to spur discussions at home. At the end of the month parents are encouraged to attend a student-directed, all-school assembly focusing on the lessons taught throughout the month.
