Mass of the Holy Spirit

At the beginning of every school year, we come together as a Catholic community to celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit. We ask the Holy Spirit to bless and guide our minds, hearts, and souls as we navigate through a new academic year of growth and development. This year the focus words are love and selflessness. As Head Master, Olen Kalkus said in his reflection, paraphrasing from the First Letter to the Corinthians, accomplishments are not possible without love. Selfless love, when we support and look out for one another, is the time when we are at our best. Mr. Kalkus reminded the community that 20 years ago, on September 11th over 9,000 first responders and follow-up teams exposed themselves to the highest risks. Selfless love strengthens our resilience to get through challenges and encourages our development as a family. We know our communal strength, nourished by the presence and grace of the Holy Spirit, will propel us to a wonderful year. We are looking forward to an incredible 60th anniversary of Carrollton and celebrating 60 years of Sacred Heart education in Miami. Mr. Kalkus closed his reflection quoting from a Christian hymn written by the late Fr. Peter Scholtes which says it all, "They'll know we are Christians by our love."
"For the sake of one child, I would have founded the Society."
