Graduation Day

Last week we held Commencement exercises for Saint David's Class of 2015 at the Church of St. Thomas More. It was an exciting and moving day, full of pride and promise. Congratulations to all of our boys who were graduated from their first alma mater.

As I said in my address to the graduates, I have witnessed the growth of these boys from their earliest days: I watched them play in our Kindergarten courtyard, dubbed them knights in the Third Grade, and walked the streets of Italy with them this spring on the Eighth Grade Italian Study Tour.

Guided always by our mission, Saint David's teachers have taught these boys throughout their years here to have the courage to listen to their inner voices and to be led by the power of their intellect to assess situations clearly, always with a moral compass. Nothing is as important as good character, it is all that endures, and it is at the heart of our founders' aspiration for our graduates.

Commencement is less about endings and more about beginnings. As our graduates assume their new identities as Saint David's alumni, we wish them well, and forever hold them near.  I hope they will visit often to participate in the life of the school, for Saint David's will always be their second home. Ut Viri Boni Sint.
