Dominic Fanelli is halfway through his second year as principal at St. Mark the Evangelist School in Harlem–a time he says is characterized by St. Katherine Drexel’s guidance to “press forward and fear nothing.”
Today, Matthew Daniels, a graduate of the Mary Ann Remick Leadership Program and longtime Catholic school principal, begins his new position as the senior director of Catholic education for the Diocese of Toledo in Ohio.
How did Remick Leadership Program graduate Emmy Pusateri Robison go from saying, “I didn’t know if I felt that teaching was serving God. I thought teaching should be about serving kids” to “I found what it really means to be Catholic and to love and serve God through loving and serving others"? This transformation of spirit was only possible through what Robison describes as the “perfect storm.”
“It is a lie, when we talk of a God that doesn’t comfort us,” Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ, told the ACE community last week. “And so we go to the margins, and we imagine a circle of compassion, and we imagine nobody’s standing outside that circle.”
