Our Lord Jesus Christ taught: no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins are ruined. Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins. Mark 2:22
New wine is an opportunity to explore something unexplored–new people, new circumstances, a new way of approaching the unknown. Our Lord Jesus Christ teaches we need new skins to capture the new wine, as it were have skin in the game, as the saying goes. The only thing that can hold us back is a lack of an imagination.
As the new school year begins, we enjoy the blessing of new wine in the form of new faculty, new course selections, a new approach at learning, and the gift of a new shepherd to lead our Diocese. Take a few moments to check out our new faculty , review the student handbook, or perhaps, go the Diocesan website to read about our new Bishop, William A. Wack, CSC. All of these blessings are part of going forward boldly in the Spirit.
Save the Date! St. John Paul II Catholic High School will celebrating the new of blessing in the Lord as we welcome Bishop Wack in a Meet and Greet, Friday September 22, 2017m 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM EST. This is a fundraising event for St. John Paul II Catholic High School. Tickets for the event will be available soon. Send your RSVP today! (Click on Meet and Greet for more information.)
May you and your loved ones have a year of miracles!
For God’s Greater Glory…
Rev. Roy C. Marien, President
