If your family or friends have been directly impacted by this problem, tell the Governor the details. Even if you don’t personally know someone affected but believe in Catholic Education, please contact the Governor.

Something to think about...questions for this week
God doesn't just give us what we need - He gives us more than we need. Made in His image, we are called to do the same. Do you go above and beyond what is required? How well do you fulfill the command to love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you?
(Remember - though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)
