Weekly Letter (May 26, 2015)

Dear Parents and Students,

In recent months, so many others who do not know Star of the Sea School, have tried to define us. The following is my attempt to share how I see our school. God bless and have a pleasant week.

WITH HUMILITY, RESPECT, AND LOVE
STAR OF THE SEA SCHOOL
AFFIRMS THAT
WE ARE A CATHOLIC SCHOOL.

AS SUCH, WE BELIEVE IN GOD THE FATHER, ALMIGHTY, MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH: AND IN JESUS CHRIST, HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, OUR LORD: WHO WAS CONCEIVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, BORN OF THE VIRGIN MARY, SUFFERED UNDER PONTIUS PILATE, WAS CRUCIFIED, DIED AND WAS BURIED: HE DESCENDED INTO HELL: THE THIRD DAY HE ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD: HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, AND SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY: FROM THENCE HE SHALL COME TO JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD: WE BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT: WE BELIEVE IN THE HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH, THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY, AND LIFE EVERLASTING.

WE BELIEVE THAT WHEN ASKED, “RABBI, WHICH IS THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT IN THE LAW?” JESUS REPLIED: “‘LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND’ THIS IS THE FIRST AND GREATEST COMMANDMENT. AND THE SECOND IS LIKE IT: ‘LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS HANG ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS.”

WE BELIEVE THAT PARENTS, ARE THEIR CHILDREN’S FIRST TEACHERS AND THAT WITH EDUCATORS AND CLERGY MUST WORK TOGETHER TO SHARE GOD’S LOVE WITH THE CHILDREN. WE BELIEVE THAT A STRONG RELIGION PROGRAM ENABLES OUR STUDENTS TO BETTER LOVE GOD AND ALL OF HIS CHILDREN. WE BELIEVE THAT A STRONG ACADEMIC PROGRAM ENABLES OUR STUDENTS TO BETTER LIVE THE CORPORAL AND SPIRITUAL WORKS OF MERCY. WE BELIEVE THAT OUR FAITH IS BEST TAUGHT THROUGH WORDS AND DEEDS. STUDENTS DO NOT LEARN “TOLERANCE” AT STAR OF THE SEA SCHOOL THEY LEARN TO LOVE ALL OF GOD’S CHILDREN. AND ALL OF GOD’S CHILDREN ARE WELCOME AT OUR SCHOOL. WE PLEDGE TO DO OUR BEST TO LIVE UP TO THESE STANDARDS BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT EACH CHILD IS A SISTER OR BROTHER OF JESUS CHRIST
