“What would Jesus do?”

posted Sep 9, 2019, 8:46 AM by Gary Clayton

During morning assembly, our 5th grade leaders introduced the spiritual connection “What would Jesus do?” to the first of the Seven Habits-Be Proactive. This year we will focus on how to be proactive by stopping and thinking about what Jesus would do and what God is calling us to do with our actions.  When we develop these habits our actions become holy moments. A holy moment is when you make yourself completely available to God. You set self-interest aside, you set aside what you want to do or feel like doing, and for that moment you do exactly what you sense God is calling you to do. 


One clear example of how to act this way was introduced by our 5th grade leaders in the following verses that were written on the wall of Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta, India. Please read this poem with your children at home to develop habits that help them experience holy moments of charity/love.


 

 

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. 
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. 
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. 
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. 
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. 
Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. 
It was never between you and them anyway.

posted Aug 27, 2019, 9:17 AM by Gary Clayton

Our first full week of school was filled with many opportunities to celebrate the amazing stewardship of our students, families, staff, and parish. Students and staff demonstrated hospitality by welcoming all of the new members of our school community. Parishioners, staff, students, and families demonstrated a prayerful life by participating in daily prayers, celebrating school mass, and engaging in the Prayer Walk to bless the school. Students and staff engaged in formation opportunities each day by making connections to our bible verse and noticing ways to encourage one another and build each other up. Staff members continuously recognized students and other staff members for the many ways they use their time, talent, and treasure for service to our school community. Stewardship is one of the amazing ways we promote spiritual growth in our St. Dominic School community. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with others at our school!
