"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Prayer Requested for Schools

Please remember the students and teachers of our nation in your prayers as they return to school. Tomorrow is our first day back from summer vacation at St. Vincent's School. It is going to be an exciting year!

O Eternal God, bless all schools, colleges, and universities, and especially St. Vincent's School, that they may be lively centers for sound learning, new discovery, and the pursuit of wisdom; and grant that those who teach and those who learn may find you to be the source of all truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This photograph of the campanile of St. Vincent's Cathedral was taken by my father, R.D. Foster, this morning--otherwise known as "the day before school starts."
