Thanksgiving is approaching and we are called to reflect and pray on the blessings in our lives.  I believe this is a fitting year to recall the origins of this holiday.  On October 3, 1863, in the third autumn of the Civil War, President Lincoln issued a proclamation:

Dear Parents and Friends,

Our beautiful campus at 1200 Jacob Lane is as active as ever! We just celebrated our Homecoming Weekend with a variety of events such as the Alumni Guys Night Out, the Alumni BBQ, a home football game, water polo tournament, student dance, and the Alumni Family Liturgy.  During the Alumni Family Liturgy, Fr. Aaron Engebretson, S.J., preached on the meaning of Luke’s account of the cleansing of the ten lepers who were healed from a distance by Jesus (Luke 17:11-19).  Fr. Aaron shared with us that we are all worthy of God’s healing love, regardless of where we are. Of the ten, one man returned, approaching Jesus to experience God’s love more intimately; he could touch his cloak, hear his words, see him up close–God in the flesh.  In like manner, our alumni were invited to return to this community at Jesuit where they encountered the amazing power of God’s love.  Fr. Aaron’s message has stuck with me and it echoes what we tell our students daily–that they are worthy of God’s unwavering and unconditional love.

Dear Parents:

The start of the school year was a whirlwind of exciting events that included the Frosh Orientation and Mass, the Mass of the Holy Spirit, the Frosh Overnight Retreat, Back-to-School Night, Sprit Week, and the Holy Bowl.  These events were designed to welcome our newest members to the Jesuit High School community and celebrate our rich tradition.  We now turn to our planning for Open House as we enter into the next phase of the school year.

Dear Parents and Friends,

Final preparations and last-minute projects are wrapping up and we are ready to begin another school year at 1200 Jacob Lane!  We already have teachers on campus getting ready for the always-busy academic year.  We are rested and ready to do the important work of Jesuit High School and I know that our students will be surrounded by people who are “dedicated to forming competent young men into conscientious leaders in compassionate service to others for the greater glory of God.”
