Dear Parents,

Welcome back to another school year! I hope that you and your family enjoyed a wonderful summer, and that your son is ready for another school year. To those new to the Bellarmine community, let me once again extend a very warm welcome to you. Each month, I write to the parent community to try to share with you some of what has been happening at Bellarmine as we endeavor to fulfill our great responsibility and joy to educate your son in the Ignatian tradition.

This morning, we started our school year as we do every year with the Mass of the Holy Spirit, celebrated today by Fr. Shinney, S.J. (sometimes known as “Fr. Go Bells!”). It is always a wonderful way to start the school year, as we pause to ask for God’s blessing in all that we do.

I was very fortunate today to be able to offer the Gospel Reflection. I have linked my reflection I hope to see you soon on campus, maybe even at this SATURDAY’S ALUMNI HALL OF FAME ceremony & dinner. I’m fortunate to know all four men being inducted this year, and all are amazing examples of how they have taken their God-given gifts and talents and truly put them at the service of others. This event is a terrific way to garner some insight into what a Bellarmine education is all about and is always a very enjoyable evening.

I hope and pray that God will richly bless you and your family throughout this school year, and look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely,
Chris Meyercord '88
President

    Dear Parents,

    As you know, today marks the last day of classes for this academic year. While I know the boys’ thoughts are quickly turning to summer, I hope that they’ll be able to apply themselves for a few more days so that they will finish strong with their final exams!

    Dear Parents,

    Welcome – or welcome back! I hope that you had a truly wonderful and memorable summer with your family and friends. It was great to see all of the students back at school this morning. While I’m sure there were some sleepy, pretty non-communicative boys when they left home, I saw plenty of smiles and heard lots of laughter as students greeted one another on campus.
