Weekly Letter (Jan 16, ’18)

Dear Parents,

“Being a disciple means being constantly ready to bring the love of Jesus to others, and this can happen unexpectedly and in any place: on the street, in a city square, during work, on a journey.” – Pope Francis

Our Star students are taught that they are disciples of God and here Pope Francis speaks of each of us being open to sharing friendship and love with others, a message that we reinforce in our classes. Our Pope’s words also speak to our weekend celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Many of us spent Monday performing acts of community service in his name.

Last Sunday’s scriptures introduced us to the ancestors of our faith who answered God’s call to share such unqualified love. Their responses to His call changed not only their lives but also the world around them. Thank goodness for the people in our lives who, like Dr. King and Pope Francis, labor in service to others and bring us the message of friendship and love. These are the people we wish to emulate, the ones who have and continue to help make the world a better place.

How often, I wonder, do we miss God’s call to love in this way? I read that Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’

A reminder, I think, that sometimes we need more than just a dream on which to hang our hat. Sometimes we need to actto make our dream come true. And, has been demonstrated at Star, it is with many hands that much can be accomplished.

Thank you for your love of this school and all within it. Your generosity makes it such a pleasure for me to serve Star and her community.

May this week be one full of friendship and loving action,

Mrs. Theresa Poon
Principal
