One of the Pope’s prayer intentions for September is: “That all teachers may know how to communicate love of the truth and instill authentic moral and spiritual values.”

You know autumn is around the corner when there is crispness in the morning air and yellow school buses make their appearance once again! This week, schools in the Diocese of Arlington opened their doors to the 2011-2012 academic year. Principals, teachers and staff have spent the summer preparing classrooms and lesson plans to welcome back their students.
There have been a few changes in our office as well. We have a new Director of Enrollment, Marketing and Special Projects. Mrs. Reneé Q. White, previously principal of St. Luke School in McLean, joined us this summer. Reneé will bring energy and creativity to this position.
We also have three new principals this year: Mr. Art Fairweather at St. John the Evangelist School, Mr. Mark Cozensa at St. Luke School, and Mrs. Wendy Murphy at Epiphany School. I wish them the best as they begin a new year.
Every year we strive to create a faith-filled environment which will inspire our students both now and in the future. We ask your prayers that God will bless our efforts!
