Speaking to a cathedral largely filled with
teachers -- veterans through to 'first year
outs' -- Bishop Bill Wright compared Jesus'
ministry with that of teachers: "As Christ
taught his disciples to pray, you teach your
disciples to pray."
The occasion was the annual "Called
to Serve" Mass and a highlight was the
presentation of the Monsignor Frank
Coolahan Awards. Mgr Coolahan was a
former Director of Catholic Schools who
passed away in 2000. The title "Called
to Serve" encapsulates the vocation of
teaching in Catholic schools.
