A quiet Saturday

Today was a quiet day of answering letters and working on strategic planning.

This evening the local parish, St. James, celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation. Several of the young people who were confirmed I know well because they are children of our staff. Others I know from helping out downtown occasionally, or going to events at the high school. The church hosted a wonderful and spirit filled celebration. For me, the most enjoyable part is wandering around the church hall afterwards, visiting with people and getting to meet extended family who made the trip to be of support.

At St. Joseph's Indian School, our privately-funded programs for Lakota (Sioux) children in need have evolved over 89 years of family partnership, experience and education. Because of generous friends who share tax-deductible donations, Native American youth receive a safe, stable home life; individual counseling and guidance; carefully planned curriculum based on Lakota culture and individual student needs and tools to help build confidence, boost self-esteem and improve cultural awareness. All of this helps children to live a bright, productive, possibility-filled future.
