Last week's Catholic Standard has a wonderful article on St. Augustine Parish in Washington DC.
The article states that there are 21 students preparing to be baptized. WOW! Congratulations to Fr. Smith. Also congratulations must be given to the three Handmaid of the Holy Child Jesus sisters. (And they wear habits, so much for not being able to relate to them.)
Note what the article stated about the sisters: discipline, strong morals and a missionary spirit in tow. FANTASTIC!
In addition, Fr. Smith states something about Catholic schools, which I have been stating for a while: Catholic schools are clearly an extension of the mission of the Church.
And to think, this school was on the list to close a couple of years ago by the Archdiocese.
