A Word about Content

I’m a recovering perfectionist, and if I waited until I had enough time to write the kind of quality articles that I think you deserve, then no articles would ever be written. I’m a husband, father of four kids, teacher, vice principal, technology coordinator, and deacon. It’s sheer insanity and blind faith that makes me think I can maintain a site like this. That being said, I am passionate about Catholic education and I think Catholic School Chronicle fills an important need in the online community.

Right now these posts are written in fits and spurts early in the morning or late at night, with the most cursory of proofing and editing. Unlike the great bloggers out there, I don’t have a set time to write each day, for the simple reason that I don’t have time each day. I carve as much time out as I can, and hope that the Holy Spirit makes up for my inadequacies.

It pains me that I can’t spend more time writing for you, but my approach with Catholic School Chronicle is that it is better to do it imperfectly than not to do it at all. As St. Paul says, “I will rather boast most gladly of my weakness, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me…for when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor 12:9-10).
