Spotlight on St. Michael in South Sioux City
In an effort to showcase the good works by our ArchOmaha Catholic Schools, please see below story, submitted by Sandy Williams, principal at St. Michael Catholic School in South Sioux City.
Victor is an 8th grader. He has attended St. Michael’s most of his life. He was someone who didn’t always use his God-given gifts and talents to the very best of his ability. And he liked to push the limits…until this year. I have seen a major transformation in him during his eighth grade year. Academically, he has made great strides. Behaviorally, he is working to not just keep himself in check, but also helping his peers.
And his faith life has grown tremendously.
He is serving Holy Mass several times during the week and on weekends. Victor has organized altar serving training, and he even organized and led a Posada for our student body just before Christmas. He is also volunteering every Wednesday to help with religious education in a classroom–and in any other capacity needed.
Victor is currently and strongly considering the priesthood for his future.
I see the transformation in Victor and the growth in his faith life. He is not only an inspiration to me, but to our entire St. Michael’s community.
We’re proud of you, too, Victor! Experiences like these remind us of the value and importance of Catholic education. Please join us in prayer for Victor, his family and his entire school community.
