One of our senior Brothers has a Birthday Card Ministry. He obtains the list of all student birthdays each year and sends the young person a card on that special day. Since COVID-19 has entered our world this Brother has transitioned to a Distance Birthday Card Ministry. Yes, he now sends a birthday card via email. He reports that many more students than usual have been acknowledging the reception of these cards with return emails and on a couple of occasions this connection has led to a zoom conversation between the Brother and the student (with parent permission of course).
St. La Salle said, “To touch the hearts of your students and inspire them is the greatest miracle you can perform and one that God expects of you.” Might you consider a Birthday Card Ministry at your school and continue to touch the hearts of those entrusted to your care?
