Get some joy – tour a school!

Now that the thrills and excitement of the Advent and holiday season have passed (God Bless the UPS and USPS drivers we wore out via our online shopping!), the NFL playoffs trudge on with the Broncos as bystanders, car windows need scraping because of outside temperatures and a sense of the mundane creeps back into daily life, a good dose of joy is just a little harder to find.

Luckily, we have just the cure for those “back to normal” blues – come visit one of our Catholic schools!

With the annual celebration of Catholic Schools Week just around the corner, we have setup a great schedule of tours at schools across the Denver Metro area, so wherever you are, there is a school tour close and convenient for you, giving you an opportunity to see the incredible faith, spirit and learning our schools generate every day. The tours will take 30-45 minutes – seeing the beautiful children and the passion our schools staffs bring to their professions is a guaranteed bolt of joy I promise will make your day better.

We are so proud of our schools, they truly are building the kingdom of heaven. I could write thousands of words about how fantastic our schools are, but words can never replace the experience of stepping inside a school for yourself and feeling the joy of knowing you are standing in the midst of wonderful things happening for young people. You will have the chance to meet school leaders, ask questions and walk the facilities.

Do yourself a favor – sign up for a school tour with me and get some joy!

To reserve a spot on a tour, check the schedule below and email me at jay.clark@seedsofhopedenver.org to let me know which tour you would like to attend. Bring a friend! To provide the best access possible and not overwhelm the schools, we have a limited number of spaces on each tour.
