“God’s love, individual, real, and unchanging is the true source of our worth, identity, and dignity. It really is not a question of who we are, but rather whose we are. Because his love will never change, nothing can reduce our God-given dignity, and nothing can diminish the immeasurable worth of our lives.”

As we begin a new PSR school year, let us take an opportunity to ask God for blessings and support on this journey. It is with great joy that we welcome all our children and teachers to a new PSR year 2022/2023. Our goal is to share our Catholic faith and traditions with our children. Let us pray that we can all work together to accomplish this goal. May Mary, Mother of Christ and our Mother, be our great example of how to follow the footsteps of good steward. Holy Mary Mother of God, Pray for Us and St. John the Baptist, Pray for Us.

God bless you all! Fr. Slawomir
