Principal’s Perspective: Loving Thy Neighbor

In light of the tragedies that have been happening in our country, most recently the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, I feel it is necessary for us to take time to reflect on how Jesus intended for us to treat one another. Our Catholic faith teaches us that we must live in solidarity.  We are one human family, whatever our national, racial, ethnic, economic, and ideological differences. We need to love our neighbor.  As Catholics we are worldly in our beliefs. Our faith calls us to fight against racism, poverty, and to pursue peace and justice in the world.

 

The violence we see in our neighborhoods and across the country is happening at an escalated rate. As a Catholic community, we need to come together to evoke change. We need to instill in the hearts and minds of our children that we must love one another. We must teach them not to be indoctrinated by what they see on social media and the news. We need to provide them with the words given to them by our savior, Jesus Christ. We are fighting a war on many fronts. The message that they must hear is one of solidarity, compassion, and caring. Only when we come together will we be able to bring an end to these atrocities. Our vision at St. Thomas More is to provide our students with the foundation to lead humbly, to always seek truth and knowledge, and to answer God’s call to serve.

 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of the Tree of Life Congregation synagogue in Pittsburgh and all people that have been victims of unjust violence.

 

Blessings,

Nicholas J. Kelly
Principal

    Congratulations to the Cavalier Powerlifting Team! On Saturday, seven Cavaliers competed in a powerlifting meet at Cudahy High School. Five of the seven athletes medaled, and two of those students are going to state!

    “Coach Litscher and I are proud of these student athletes for the hard work and dedication to training," said powerlifting coach and STM science teacher Mike Fricke. "Strength training has a unique way of instilling confidence and growth in young men and women, and in the end that is the most important outcome anyone would want of our students at St. Thomas More High School.”

    Stay tuned for more updates on our powerlifting team as some of them compete in Germantown in February and then at the state meet in Appleton on March 2 and 3.
