Bishop Gary Gordon's Homily from the Mass for the Island Catholic Schools Professional Development Day

"An authentic Catholic school ... is rooted in the person of Jesus Christ ... and this is why authenticity for a Catholic School is in the parish, in the worshipping assembly of his body the Church, gathered around a pastor, around the table of the Word, and the Eucharist, where we become what we receive: holy communion. The Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life."

~ Bishop Gary Gordon
