Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Weekly Office Update
From the Office of Principal
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Supporters of SWS,
One of our schools goals is “To become a more prayerful school”. This means that we look for opportunities for our students and staff members to call on God. We have our daily religion lessons, our weekly Masses, and a variety of rituals, traditions, and first time plans for our school to seek wisdom and guidance by the acts of Faith, Love and Service.
Our children have the answers in their hearts. This is because they have the souls and minds that are open, trusting, and forgiving because they are children and they don’t know any different. They are able to fully immerse themselves, they believe, they have hope, they can forgive and move on. They are humble. When Jesus said, “Bless the Little Children,” he surely gave us a directive to be like them, the children.
At SWS we have the best combination of people: we have teachers who will teach the children and we have children who will teach the teachers. Add the commitment/dedication and prayers of school parents and our school becomes more holy day by day! Together we form one amazing and dynamic faith community who grows and moves together in ways that surely make God smile!
