San Jose Catholic students were treated to a visit by Deacon Chris Supple on Tuesday as part of Catholic Schools Week. Deacon Chris strolled the campus, lunchroom, and classrooms stopping to chat, join in games, and speak about his calling to serve God and the Catholic Church. Students listened attentively as he told about how God calls each of us to a vocation; however, sometimes we don’t hear Him. He admitted that it took him a few years to answer God’s call once the seed had been planted. Deacon Chris shared with the students that he wishes he could be a deacon full time and hopes to do just that when he retires. One 6th grade student asked him, “What was the best day of your life?” and Deacon Chris responded, “Today, because I get to spend it with all of you.”
On Wednesday, we were pleased to welcome Sr. Molly McClowry to our campus during our Open House. Sr. Molly visited classrooms and discussed her vocation to become a Sister in the Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Many questions, both big and small, were asked of Sr. Molly and she answered them all with kindness and candor. It is obvious from speaking with this young woman that a life spent in service to God and others is attainable and rewarding.
