Two weeks ago, mosaics depicting the words “to know, to love, and to serve God” were installed over the main entrance of Assumption Catholic School. (Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials.) These words were chosen for the mosaics, because our goal is to know, love and serve God in this world in order to be happy with Him in the next life. That is, with each school year, both we teachers and our children continue in the school of life – we are teaching (but so are the children!), they are learning (and so are we), and hopefully, all of us are praying and advancing, bit by bit, in our spiritual lives. We pray and study and work through one year and, before we know it, we're planning the next.
The mosaics are a beautiful and inspirational addition to our school building. We hope that they will inspire our children to know, love, and serve God and each other, through academic pursuits, spiritual development, and community involvement. We thank our teacher, Mary Ann Makar, for sponsoring the mosaics in memory of her parents.
