It is with great pleasure that Rochester Catholic Schools (RCS) and the Lourdes Foundation (LFI) announce the participants selected for the 2015 Franciscan Leadership Pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy. Laura Anderson, 2nd Grade Teacher at St. John the Evangelist/St. Pius X School and Dave Jenson, Science Teacher, Lourdes High School have been chosen by RCS and LFI respectively to begin a journey that will last a lifetime as they travel in the footsteps of two remarkable saints…saints who continue to inspire and shape who we are today as Rochester Catholic Schools. Since 2006, RCS and LFI have partnered to sponsor RCS faculty and staff members to attend the Franciscan Leadership Pilgrimage. Pilgrims will experience the lives of St. Francis and St. Clare and their legacies that have been instrumental and integral in shaping the values and philosophies of so many Franciscan institutions. RCS and LFI pray that our pilgrims return to their respective positions within our school system with a zealous desire to impact others by their renewed spirit and deeper understanding of the Franciscan charism. Please keep our two pilgrims in your prayers as they prepare for this transformational experience this coming October, 2015.
Congratulations Laura and Dave! Our prayers are with you every step of the way.
