‘I am the vine and you are the branches.’

At the end of the 2008-2009 school year, teachers and faculty from St. Charles Borromeo School in Destrehan selected their school’s theme for 2009-2010 as “I am the vine and you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, will bear much fruit; For without Me you can do nothing.” The school’s Unity Mass was celebrated by Father Harry along with preschool through eighth-grade students, faculty, parents and parishioners. Father Harry spoke about how many things connect people together such as telephones, computers, airplanes and television but most of all faith. Students in preschool through eighth-grade were given branches and potted vines to place on the altar to represent their homeroom class. These vines will be placed in their homerooms so students can observe and nurture their growth for the school year.
