During these uncertain times in which we find ourselves adjusting to the new realities of distance learning and Zoom sessions with educators, classmates and friends, we are encouraged to remember that as a school community we remain called to be a community that is called to “embrace the mission of Jesus Christ: to form men and women of faith, service, and leadership in church and community.”
Who We Are
As we begin the 2020-2021 academic year - be it in-person or remotely - we are reminded of who we are. We are a school community called to “embrace the mission of Jesus Christ: to form men and women of faith, service and leadership in church and community.”
And while our ability to be in the presence of and serve many of our partner agencies has been stifled by this pandemic, it does not mean that we are unable to serve or be a people for others. Times like these call us to be creative, compassionate and do what we can to promote the “common good” so that no one in our homes, neighborhoods or school community is socially isolated.
This is who we are #GibbonsServes
