This week Everest students celebrated National Vocations Awareness Week. This is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promoting vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.
Headmaster Mr. Reichert shared, “I’m sure that I speak on behalf of the entire faculty and staff in thanking each of our consecrated souls for their YES to God – and subsequently their yes to each one of us. Our faculty and staff, students, and Everest families are blessed with an amazing gift in each one of them. Let’s continue to pray for our priests and consecrated, here at Everest and throughout the world.”
Students enjoyed a special visit from two Legionary seminarians who are preparing for the priesthood at the seminary in Connecticut as well as EC alum, Jeremy Schupbach ’14, who is studying at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit. Students prepared posters in gratitude to Everest’s priests and consecrated women, and the homeroom parents prepared a dinner in gratitude for them. High school students had the opportunity for adoration this week.
