The new school year

For many school has already started, and in another week and a half we will undertaking a new semester. As my time at home dwindles to a close I cannot help but talk about the high school that I went to. Bishop Thomas O'Gorman High School was founded in the early 1960s and it replaced the Cathedral High school. Over the past three years, plans have been in the works to renovate the school and this past winter the demolition began. They even adjusted the school year to end early in the spring so that the construction workers could have enough time to complete the task. So far two new academic wings have been built, a new football field, and a new eight lane track have been installed. I have a couple of friends who work there as teachers and I hope to get in sometime this week to see the new place. Some of the readers may be wondering if there is a connection to the seminary. To simply put it: yes. In my graduating class three of us went into seminary formation. The year after that, three more. Recently, there have been more and more young men entering seminary after graduating from Bishop Thomas O'Gorman High School. I hope and pray that the mission of my beloved high school will continue to produce many vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
