Cardinal Gibbons is our sanctuary

March 12, 2010

I just wanted to let you know how terribly disappointed we are about the closing of Cardinal Gibbons School. This institution stands for so much. History, education, loyalty, brotherhood, respect, dedication, camaraderie and faith to only name a few. The faculty, staff and students all demonstrate these qualities to their fullest not only to each other but to the entire community. Teachers are more than teachers. They are friends, mentors and leaders who are admired and appreciated for the tireless hours they put in without hesitation. These young men thrive here at Gibbons and are truly good people.

For all that is going on in the world, both far and near, Gibbons is our sanctuary. If anyone has spent any amount of time there, they would know exactly what I am talking about. You are welcomed the moment you step in the door. It would be devastating for Cardinal Gibbons School and what it stands for to come to an end. I wholeheartedly hope this is not happening and I wake up from this bad dream.
