Blessings for the Journey
It has long been said that life is a journey. There are many different roads on this journey and today marks the end of one road and the beginning of another for all our graduates.
Their path through high school, which for most began at E.D. Feehan Catholic High School four years, is being celebrated today with the diploma that they proudly hold in their hands.
And now they step out into the big, bright, promising world ready to achieve their goals, hopes, and dreams for the future, knowing that all can be realized with God's help.
There is an ancient tradition in many cultures to gift a family member who is about to begin a new journey with a travel pouch containing items that they might need on the way.
At the Grade 12 retreat, these graduates received and decorated their very own travel pouches. They are marked with their name and adorned with symbols of their connection to the Feehan Family.
Today as we celebrate, these pouches will be presented to the graduates full of all the well wishes, prayers, and pride of the Feehan Family, who send them on their way.
Remember, you will always be a member of the Feehan Family. God Bless you all!
