Principal’s Newsletter – December 2017


December 25, 2017


Aloha e Saint Louis Parents/Guardians, 

Merry Christmas!

Do not be afraid…God is with us. Throughout Advent a group of Administrators, Faculty and Staff gathered weekly in the morning to reflect with joy and hope in preparation for Christmas. The message of Do not be afraid to both Joseph and Mary resonated with me. As a school community, many of our decisions depend on our willingness to be open to God’s calling. A parent visiting our Open House in November came with an open mind to the possibility of sending her son to Saint Louis next year. A profound message she heard was one of our alumni faculty members who expressed that while in another career, he responded to a calling to return to Saint Louis to teach. At times, many of our life experiences may contain fear. However, how can we respond with a faith that leads us to be confident in God’s message?

Every day of our school year is filled with opportunities for our students to grow in academics, alaka`i, athletics, aloha, arts, and in their love of Akua. As Marianist educators it is our hope that we can provide these experiences where they can grow in understanding God’s calling for each of them.  As we celebrate the joy of Christmas, we can know that the birth of Christ clearly means God is with us. Therefore, we should never be afraid.

God bless you and your family in this Christmas Season.

Memor et Fidelis,

Christopher Casupang ’87 M.A., M.Ed.
