Saying thanks for saying yes

Recently, Pope Francis declared a Year of Consecrated Life, a year set apart to give thanks to the men and women who have committed themselves to religious life.  We have hundreds of women and men religious here in the Diocese of Manchester, many of whom have taught in our Catholic schools.  As this week is also Catholic Schools Week, we are having all of our sophomores compose notes to the men and women religious thanking them for answering God's call and for their service to the diocese.

We are a little behind in sending the notes because of the snow days but we will be getting them out over the next few days.  As I told the sophomores, these men and women have sacrificed so much to serve us and sending them a note thanking them is the absolute least we can do for them.
