I'm really disappointed in the eulogy Father Gray gave today, which is really a reflection on him and the church. He did apologize and kept admitting how he didn't know much about my father, which he didn't, but that's not an excuse. As in any job, he had time to prepare, to ask people, to learn stories to get to know him to create a proper story as a send away or at least not leave a negative inaccurate review of someone without knowing them. I get where he was trying to go with his story, but it really was just laziness. Not knowing the name of the person, saying there was a "gap" in pictures, which there was not, instead of seeing love in the pictures shown, the amount of pictures shown and the time to put those together and if he even took the time to watch the slideshow the night before, not to mention keep comparing him to criminals . All the people there today know it was lack of you not "knowing him", but please either find the passion that made you become a priest or find something else you like to do because today was someone who just "showed up" and it is a shame because all the people that showed up today will not want to come back. Thankfully we ending on a good note with good stories, but please for the next funeral put a little more thought into it or decline.
Best phrase I could use: inviting community. The school is excellent and the opportunities to grow are available. All are welcome.
welcoming and openSt Gerard Majella is a really neat parish. The atmosphere is very welcoming to new comers and most parishioners greeted the strangers to help us feel welcome. I will definitely be back :)
I was leery of writing a review because I dislike those who only write reviews when they're negative. I will try to be balanced and fair. The academics are strong, the principal is fair and a good human being with an incredible work ethic, most of the staff are generally happy and overall I was feeling glad we found the school. The one thing that is discouraging is the prevalence (from our perspective) of negative reinforcement by teachers (not administrators). I think the teachers could use some professional development in the area of compassionate guidance and positive redirection. This would be a great school if those were more standard. I know how hard it is to be a public school teacher, at least I can only imagine, so it's hard to be too critical.
Logos School literally saved my life. After being bullied in middle school and being diagnosed with anxiety disorder and depression, I went to a large public high school. I was filled with high anxiety every moment of every day, so much that I even stopped attending school for quite some time.I was so close to running out of options (other than dropping out), but I decided to give one last shot to Logos... That was the best decision of my entire life. The therapists there were SO helpful, and they really understood my specific needs. I met the best friends I could ever ask for at that school. Logos made every day an exciting adventure and helped me overcome so many struggles, both therapeutically and academically.Very recently, I graduated from Logos School, which was something I could have ever imagined myself doing just a couple years ago. I am currently attending my dream school for college and pursuing my dream career.I could not thank Logos enough for giving me my confidence back and helping me discover who I truly am. I would recommend at least checking out Logos because attending school there was a life-changing experience that will help me cope with things a lot better in my future. I have learned so much about myself, mental health, and forming strong relationships with others over the two years I was there. Thanks to Logos School, I now have my life back in order, and I know I am capable of doing great things in the future.
Logos has been a life-saver for our family. Three years ago, our daughter was in a school setting where she was misunderstood, bullied, and singled out as a “bad” kid. In an environment without anyone to care or advocate for her needs, she became angry and isolated. She had no friends, and school staff chose to look the other way when conflict arose. Since starting at Logos, our daughter has blossomed. She has been acknowledged for her many gifts and talents, made wonderful friendships and enjoys school again. Best of all, she has developed a strong sense of self respect, compassion and understanding for others. Our home life is so much more pleasant, and we are finally able to relax and enjoy our family time together.
