Charity: Sharing Our God-Given Gifts
As a way to communicate with you, this blog will be an avenue for sharing news and views regarding Scecina Memorial High School. I look forward to starting this endeavor and welcome your comments and suggestions along the way.
The opening of the blog coincides with the memorial that our Church celebrates this week to the life of Saint Vincent de Paul. This valiant figure was renowned for his compassion, humility and generosity. He is known to many as the "Great Apostle of Charity".
Charity, as we know, comes in many shapes and sizes. It can be in the form of donating money and items to a person who is in material need. It can mean lending a compassionate ear or standing up for a person whom others may unfairly critique.
Above all, being charitable means making the world a better place through the generous and responsible sharing of our time, talents, and treasures for God’s glory and the good of our neighbor. As we contemplate and advance the mission of Scecina Memorial High School, may charity be a hallmark of our efforts to help our diverse community of students grow as servants and leaders. In the lives of heroic figures such as Father Thomas Scecina and Saint Vincent de Paul, we have powerful role models of charity!
We’ll stay in touch!
