Greetings from our Pastor
I am very grateful that you would consider our parish school, St. Michael Catholic School, as a place for your child to learn and to grow. I myself attended Catholic grade school in Highland, Indiana. In those days, classes were large but we learned well. I remember moving into high school and being amazed how far ahead I was from many of my classmates. What was even more amazing is that I would have considered myself a B-student. That same early success carried on into college and beyond.
The reason I think that this is the case is not only the excellent dedicated teachers but also the learning of good life skills rooted in my Faith. This formation in both studies and faith created for me an even sturdier foundation on which I built my life and career.
My parents, who were of modest means, sent six of us to catholic school. I remember as a child it was not always easy for them and us, but I thank them for being resolute for all of us, keeping the larger picture of future success before their eyes. It was the best gift they have given me, those first eight years.
I pray that you too find what is offered here a great gift, or as the gospel of Matthew says, “a pearl of great price” that is worth pursuing. (Matthew 13: 45-46)
In Christ, our Teacher and Guide,
Fr. Martin J. Dobrzynski, Pastor
