On Wednesday, August 16, students, parents and faculty of Bishop Thomas K. Gorman Catholic School in Tyler joined Bishop Joseph Strickland at the Chapel of Sts. Peter and Paul for the opening school year Mass, followed by the Eucharistic procession to the campus.
In his opening homily, School President Fr. Anthony Stoeppel, STD, stressed to the students that the journey of going to school has one true end.
“Why do we go to school? To discover Truth, to know Truth, to live Truth. . . . Jesus, the Great Teacher, journeys with us, leads us to school to the discovery of Truth.
“Today, we gather together in Jesus’ name to ask for his grace to discover Truth. And we follow Jesus literally, truly present, to our school in our journey to discover Truth.”
