Holy Week at STM


Pope Francis invites us all to slow down during this most Holy Week. He said on Tuesday that we should “…think about our own past, the blessings, the troubles, everything. The graces and the sins, everything…” He notes that if we do this today, this week, we will rediscover the beauty of God’s love, mercy and hope.



In our theology classes throughout all of Lent we have tried to give STM students the opportunity to slow down and reflect using the Ignatian Examen and the Lectio Divina regularly. During Holy Week, the students prayed the stations of the cross and experienced the humility of foot washing.


“Giving students the chance to wash each other’s feet helps them more fully embrace the spirit of servant leadership, which is an important component of the well-rounded character we are helping to form here at St. Thomas More.”
Anne Wardecke (STM ’11), Theology Teacher



We hope that these opportunities have allowed the students to slow down and reflect upon the importance of Christ’s love and sacrifice. It certainly has given the teachers a chance to consciously and significantly pray with our students. Blessings in this most holy week. May we rejoice together soon as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection.

    On Tuesday, our school community celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with a beautiful Mass planned and ministered by STM’s Latino Student Organization and World Languages department chair Mrs. Ann Marie Dorn. Padre Norberto Sandoval celebrated Mass with Father Christopher Klusman (TM ’95). After Communion, students in LSO performed a beautiful baile folklorico and baile Azteca. We are proud of all students for their months of hard work learning the dances, and extend special thanks to Mrs. Dorn for once again planning a wonderful Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass. ...
