Who We Are

  • The Fruit of the Spirit is...JOY
    Written by

    But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:
    love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! â€“Galatians 5:22-23 NL

    While working through the many preparations for the upcoming school year, I enjoyed the privilege of attending this year's summer institute on Virtue Based Restorative Discipline.  In the midst of learning and sharing, there was much discussion around the many virtues that might be introduced and shared with our students during the upcoming school year.  As a Virtue Based Restorative Discipline School of Distinction the act of focusing on virtues and embedding them within daily instruction and interactions would not be new to our faculty and staff.  However, as a new principal at Saint Charles Borromeo it seemed essential that we land on the absolute best choice for our faculty, students and families in their current frame of mind.  And so it seemed we must choose JOY ~  

    Choosing JOY ~ What does it mean to choose JOY?  How can we be mindful and deliberate in our efforts to find evidence of JOY throughout our day?   I am thrilled to embark on the journey with our school community this year in order to answer these and I am sure many more questions.  So often we strive not only to bring happiness to others but to ensure its constant presence.  As a mom, I am guilty of the constant need to create joyful moments and experiences for my family.  Yet, it is not JOY that lies at the bottom of the ice-cream cone but rather happiness that may easily fade with the last bite of the cone.  JOY involves a deeper connection with ourselves and our relationship with GOD.  It means wading through struggles, challenges, and obstacles only to find the light at the end.   It means humbling ourselves before others and holding back judgment.  Finding JOY is certainly not always easy.  I can honestly say that listening to three arguing children while driving around town on yet another rainy summer day does not invoke sunny and warm feelings of JOY. As an educator, there are many similar experiences that happen in our classrooms on a regular basis.  Yet, there would be no room for growth if there were no moments to be challenged by.  I look forward to what lies ahead and our efforts as a community of faith to find JOY ~

    Joy
