In light of Pope Benedict’s recent announcement to step down, several fourth-grade students from Holy Family School learned the importance of their religion.

The Lumen Christi bulletin board at Holy Family School was designed by fourth-grade teacher Kathy Holsinger. The purpose of the board is to make students and families aware of the Catholic identity and faith infused with learning.

The new Lumen Christi Catholic School System is made up of Catholic elementary schools in the Mahoning Valley Region. In Latin, the name means “Light of Christ” and at Holy Family School, a strong Catholic identity is pervasive through daily prayer, regular liturgy participation and the compassion that students demonstrate through service projects inside and outside of the school.
