Since the very first day, Holy Cross Congregation strove to be “educators in the faith” in all that we do in ministry, and especially in our ministries of education.
My years of teaching taught me the true meaning of Hope. To believe in each student, in their abilities, in their determination to do as well as they can, and who can overcome obstacles in their way to success. Hope that they can learn, Hope that they can discover their God given talents, and Hope that they will become men and women of faith who can, and will, make a difference in the world.
The Atanansi Primary School in the Diocese of Jinja, Uganda, where Holy Mission Center recently funded desks and chairs for the students, is an illustration of Hope. The children, sitting on the dirt floor and using the little benches for a desk, do believe that dreams can come true. That picture touches my heart and fills me with Hope. Against many odds, these young children showed me how much their education means to them!
