St. John’s students, teachers and parents are embracing the start of a new school year with  a new motto.

 “Do small things with great LOVE.”

—Blessed Mother Teresa (St. Teresa of Calcutta)

For Mother Teresa, these were more than words. This was a way of life. Just as Mother Teresa, we can serve God and live our lives by  showing others great love. Simple gestures — whether it be a smile, a word of encouragement, a random act of kindness or a sacrifice —  can have the most meaningful and biggest impact on others.

This school year, let’s focus on making this a practice in our own daily lives —  and teach our children to do the same. Together, we will make a difference.
