Saint Mary Staff and Students gathered to kick off Instruments of Peace. We are called to a mission—a mission which only you can do—a mission that might seem impossible at first glance. When you were baptized you were given the gift of faith and God gave you a mission to bring His love to our world. To share the Good News of His love with others, especially the vulnerable and those in need. Our mission is to nurture and strengthen our faith so that we grow in virtue and transform our world.
This is our 4th year of Instruments of Peace. For 4 years we have focused on growing in virtue and accepting Rachel’s challenge to reach out in kindness.
This year our challenge is to start where you are and to go deeper.
In the past, maybe you welcomed anyone who asked to play with you. Now, maybe you watch out for classmates who are being left out and invite them to play with you. In the past, maybe you showed kindness by not saying mean things about others. Now, maybe you stop yourself and others from gossiping about someone else.
Students and Staff will sign the Rachel's Challenge banner. Their signature means that they accept thier mission to grow in faith this year and bring kindness and compassion to our world---striving for the outer limits and beyond!
Pray for us.
