"We are placed in our different ranks and stations, not to get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to labor in them for Him."
Monthly Reflections from President Mike Prato
This monthly Reflection Series is intended to provide readers with reflections on the Gospels that are relevant to our school events and activities and are spiritually up-lifting.
I distinctly remember the first time my dad took me fishing when I was only about four years old.
In the fall of 1969, entering my sophomore year at JFK, I noticed a slightly older teacher wandering the halls. Thirty-nine was 'slightly old' to a 16-year old.
When I was young, 'give up' were the words my cousin and I used when we wrestled at my grandparent's house and one of us got the upper hand. Later, they were words directed to us by our parents when it was Lent. "What are you giving up for Lent?" (not so much a question, more of a suggestion)
As the president of Kennedy Catholic High School, I am super lucky to have a schedule that allows me to occasionally work within city government, to have lunches with prospective partners and to even meet with State lobbyists in Olympia, advocating for support of Catholic education. Sometimes, my schedule includes traveling internationally in search of the perfect Lancer families.
