The mission of the Tolle Lege Summer Institute is to provide young Catholic men and women with an opportunity to learn more about their faith and its relevance in the modern world. Through an academic focus on philosophy and theology, which is balanced by spiritual and cultural components, the camp serves to instruct the hearts and minds of students who are preparing to enter their senior year of high school. The students are not only able to encounter notable theologians, philosophers, and saints of past ages, but to study them through the perspective of the rich Catholic faith and under the instruction of professors from both Borromeo and St. Mary Seminaries in the Diocese of Cleveland.

Congratulations graduating 8th graders and parents, 

 

We have been celebrating a lot of "last times" in recent weeks, and have a bunch more coming.  I would like to welcome you to where you are going from here.  There are many awesome opportunities available for you at our parish as you move into high school. These can help you keep in contact with the people you have grown up with and help you make new relationships to carry you through high school (and beyond).  These can also help you grow in understanding your purpose and help make your faith your own. 

 

All you need to do is take advantage of them.  Please do! You will be happy you did!

 

Start by joining us on Sunday, May 24th from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Solon Park (big pavilion). Hope to see you there. 

 

God bless you!
