Pax et bonum! With one week into the new academic year, we salute students, teachers, and parents for successful orientations over the last few days. Now, as we march further into our journey, let us remember why Lourdesian students are called “Masters”: it is because they are being formed to master their talents, potentials, and, most importantly, themselves in order to be better men every day in all things, both great and small. Despite the tall standards for a perfect Lourdesian Master, all are nonetheless called to valiantly and relentlessly strive towards such ideals with grit and perseverance. In this new normal when the Masters are off-campus, we invite parents and guardians to always hold their boys to these goals of character especially when they are off-line. Your collaboration will be crucial in guiding our boys to become true, Christian gentlemen worthy of the name Lourdesian.
