Dear Friends in the Bishop Eustace Preparatory School Community,
In these waning days of Advent and our preparations for the joy of Christmas, it is fitting to reflect on the example of Saint Vincent Pallotti. It burns intensely in a world searching for light and truth. His enduring legacy is one of faith and leadership through service to others.
Our students, school families, administrators, faculty, staff, alumni, and benefactors are part of that legacy. An education in the Pallottine tradition is a true gift. It provides not only the tools for young men and women to succeed in the broader world, but also forms them to succeed with grace and dignity.
At Eustace Prep, we are privileged each day to bear witness to every member of our community striving to grow within the Pallottine legacy in tangible ways. Our recent Thanksgiving Turkey Drive and Giving Tree initiatives are just a few examples of how everyone works to breathe life into the charism of our patron saint.
Advent is a time of service, of preparation, and of hope. It takes inner strength—Crusader strength—to live out the true meaning of that season and to find the light and hope of Christ at its end. Let us resolve to walk the remaining days of the Advent journey together. May we all find the light surrounding the newborn Savior. May it kindle the flames within our souls and may we be a beacon of inspiration to all those around us.
We thank you for your continued support and the trust placed in us to form the next generation of Crusaders in a long, unbroken line. We wish you and your loved ones a blessed Christmas and a New Year filled with peace and joy.
Saint Vincent Pallotti, Pray for Us!
Mary, Queen of the Apostles, Pray for Us!
