Feast of the Ascension
Dear Friends of Clear Creek Abbey,
The world is on fire. As in the time of Pope Saint Gregory the Great, we are engaged in a struggle to save Western Christian culture from the barbarians—only this time they have cell phones. I would like to introduce you to a high school that is fighting against this new barbarism. Saint Gregory’s Academy–now Gregory the Great Academy–is both a ‘classic’ sort of boarding school for boys and a bold experiment in education. Its unique way of inspiring the practice of Catholic piety, while cultivating manly virtues in the students, makes it stand out from other institutions in America and Europe.
My numerous contacts with the faculty and students of Saint Gregory’s has led to an appreciation of what has already been accomplished by the teachers and young men and prompts me to look with bright hope to what is surely still to come of this cultural chevauchee. Please give your attention to this letter from my friend Bishop James Conley as he introduces you to this unique and important work.
￼+ br. Philip Anderson, abbot
