To the entire Roncalli Catholic community and the community of Omaha,
We at Roncalli Catholic share the grief and concern over the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many others in our society. In the Light of the Gospel, we call upon all people of good will to work to support the changes necessary to ensure that true peace and justice become the hallmarks of our culture. Over our many years, Roncalli Catholic has served a diverse community and has become known for its close and loving family spirit while respecting those of many backgrounds. We will continue to work with, and pray for, all those who are striving to find solutions that address the evil of racism and make it a thing of the past in our lives and our hearts. As Archbishop Lucas has said, “We must pray that our hearts be healed of all that tolerates or promotes the division among us that has racism as its ugly manifestation.”
The mission statement of Roncalli Catholic High School demonstrates our values as we continue to seek to build a better future. “Through the wisdom given by the Holy Spirit and guided by our Catholic faith, we promise to uncover and discover our students’ full potential and authentic selves, giving them the courage to follow the right path toward their unique futures.” As we form young men and women in this spirit, we hope that they can work to build the path to a stronger and more peaceful community.
Humbly in God’s Name,
