Happy New Year to each and every Academy family!

With the New Year comes the ubiquitous conviction to be resolute in our fresh starts. I would like to share some of my New Year’s Resolutions. I resolve:

  • To be attentive to new understandings of who God is and how God loves.
  • To allow God’s Love to inform how I think, act and interact with the world and those around me.
  • To be PRESENT to each and every person who enters my office or is in conversation with me, in my desire to REFLECT the Heart of Christ to those around me.
  • To work tirelessly in the ongoing formation of Academy administration, faculty, staff and students’ minds and hearts, affirming their identities as children of a loving God.
  • To affirm that the Academy’s entire educational endeavor (i.e., academic program, character building, spiritual development, and relational growth) are ALL a part of coming to know God more deeply.
  • To communicate my gratitude enthusiastically to all with whom I have lived and loved and worked and served.

Blessings to each one in this New Year!

Maureen Glavin, rscj
