Congrats and Godspeed, Class of 2022!

A little late, but we want to honor our class of ’22 Catholic high school graduates nonetheless! The world might look a little more like normal, but these graduates overcame many adversities over the past four years. Congratulations to each one of you, and may the Lord bless you richly as you go forth into the world and live out his plan for your lives!

“We live in an apostolic age, a world where the Christian message is not just refused but broadly ignored. A secular and relativistic point of view is what is currently seen as normal. But as we have seen during your time here at Holy Family what is understood as normal for today is not a given for the future, it is not simply the way things are.

“The message that has sounded out across the world for the last 2100 years is not extinguished by one eras failure to heed its call, its Truth is not altered because a majority refuses to respond to it. The apostles entered into terrain that was unfamiliar and unreceptive to their message, but with courage and humility they persevered. As you move into the next stage of your life you too will persevere if you continue to nourish the virtues that have been instilled over the last four years.” – Matt Haupty, Principal

“As we come to the conclusion of our time at Regis Jesuit, we must open our hearts, minds and souls to the direction God is guiding us to best serve His will on earth.

“The only thing that grew more than Shaun from freshman year to now is the love that we have for each other and the Arrupe community. We made many memories together, but I don’t think we realized that there was only a limited number of times we’d get to experience all of the little things that made our days at Arrupe Jesuit feel special. Though our high school journey ends here, our love for our teachers and each other doesn’t end.” – Camila Rojas-Ramirez, Class of 2022 Valedictorian
