Keeping the Faith

Dear Parish Families of both St. Brendan and St. Richard, 

“No matter how much it has done for your mind, 

your education has been a failure if it has failed to open your heart.”  

St. Francis de Sales, Patron Saint of Catholic Educators 

28 December 2022; 400th Anniversary 

Ever since entering into a friendship with Incarnate Word Academy, since they are known for their giftedness  in the Catholic spirituality of the Incarnation (God with us, in the person of Jesus Christ) and for their academic  excellence, our St. Brendan heart has certainly been opened, enriched and blessed in so many ways. I want to  thank Mr. Michael Wisnor and also our school principal, Miss Julie Onacila, and the whole faculty and staff for  the time and work spent in enhancing who we are as the Catholic School in North Olmsted.  

As true Navigators, along with our patron, St. Brendan, we are fearless in stepping out and sailing into  unexplored waters. Along with the Diocesan initiative called, “Keeping the Faith,” and now my additional  parish assignment at St. Richard, this is a great opportunity for all of us to look at the bigger picture of Catholic  education. This should happen not just in one parish community, but along with the parish communities of St.  Richard and St. Clarence, within the wider North Olmsted community as well. Going forward, we will make  sure that this is a reality.  

St. Brendan School is dedicated to educating minds, to make healthy the human person God has created us to  be, and to foster souls that are committed to God who guides us in every way. Mind, body, and soul – this is at  the heart of Catholic education! If you would like to know more about what is happening at St. Brendan School  please go to our school website. I think all will be elated to know how we integrate what we pray at every  Eucharist, at every Mass, “At the Savior’s command, and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say…” And  from that divine teaching we pass on to our children that they can call upon God… not as someone stuck in  the cosmos, but as God who is so near to us as to call upon Him as Father. As He calls to us, His sons and  daughters, as His Beloved.  

During this time of increased friendship with IWA, working more collaboratively as North Olmsted Catholic  parishes, and working intentionally with the Diocese on the “Keeping the Faith” initiative, please pray for us  – the priests, the administration, faculty, and staff. With a great legacy and tradition that has been handed on  to us, may we become a school that is even better by opening our hearts wider to God and our neighbors.  

I live for Jesus Christ, 

Rev. Thomas Woost

Congratulations to 8th grader Molly for her essay, and 7th grader Meg for placing in the city wide contest (pictured below).
