October Krause's Korner

Well, it doesn’t really feel much like fall yet, but the calendar says it is here…and that means the Fall Festival is coming! This is a fun opportunity for community building within the church and school. Our drill teams will perform, as will several of our students in other capacities. There will be inflatable rides, games, great food and a lot of fellowship. I hope to see you all on Saturday the 7th of October.

Thank you to all of our MIS families (Alonzo, Verdiguel, Zang, Gasper, Hoffman-Hernandez, McIntyre, Kratovil, Ortiz-Spencer, Hyams, Galindo, Ruiz-Alvarez) who promoted MIS at MIC Masses the Sunday prior to our Prospective Family Open House. Many of these parent ambassadors stepped outside of their comfort zones to share their personal story of why they chose MIS for their children and why our school family keeps them coming back.

Thank you to all of you who participated in the North Texas Giving Day as well as donating to help the students of Catholic schools in Corpus Christi, particularly True Cross Catholic School! What an amazing group of people we have that would give so willingly to help our fellow Catholics and the young people who attend those schools. You again showed how strong we are as a community and how much we are eager to help when called. This blends in very well with my theme for the year of Family. We are one family of faith and of human kind. Helping each other is where we show that support and how we can be good to each other. In this time of divisiveness on all sides we can be a pillar of kindness and caring that shows the negative influences that we will not be dragged down and we will do what we can to help. What’s more this is a great example for our children to see and to understand that we are stronger as a community and that our differences make us stronger.

Let’s get out and support our Mustangs!

God Bless,
Matthew Krause
