A Message from Brother Tony
June 2, 2020
It is difficult for me to find the right words to say over the past few days. The senseless death of George Floyd has been devastating for us as a school and a nation. I am sure you share my feelings of outrage and sadness.
At Central Catholic, we pride ourselves on bringing young men from all around Western Pennsylvania together to become Men of Faith, Scholarship and Service. As Lasallian educators, we strive to make a positive impact on those entrusted to our care. While keeping students safe is our top priority, at the same time, we want to make sure that they have a trusted space where they can express their concerns, have questions answered, and share ideas for the future.
On Friday, we are inviting students as well as a few of our alumni to attend listening sessions where they can be heard.
Each session will include:
- Opening prayer
- A check-in from our counselors
- Small group listening sessions
- Brainstorming on how we can affect change in our communities
We are doing this because we care about our students and our communities, and we want to provide a positive space where ALL of our students can express their concerns.
Groups will be limited to 30 students per session to allow social distancing and to ensure that everyone's voice is heard. If these sessions fill up, we will add additional sessions as needed. This event is for our current students only.
We pray that through listening, learning and coming together as a Central Catholic community, we can help build a better future.
