There are countless things I’m thankful for! I’m so grateful for my wonderful family, all my MODG friends and other friends, good health, all my talents, that I’m raised in a Catholic family! I’m also very thankful to God for keeping us all safe while my family got COVID at the beginning of this year!

So just want to say a huge thanks to Mother of Divine Grace school as well! - Vidya, Grade 11

This past summer I went to the Thomas Aquinas College summer program. It was incredibly fun and I was able to meet many people close to my age. I’m very thankful for the chance to meet these people while getting a taste of TAC and living on the beautiful campus and for the friends I made there and still have. My life would be so different now if I hadn’t gone.
Of course I’m grateful for my life, faith, and family, not necessarily in that order. In addition, I’m grateful for the most blessed Sacraments, the proximity of churches, food, clothing, and shelter (especially as it gets colder), and Texas and Florida. - Zoe, Grade 12
I’m thankful for my family and my friends, and especially my faith. I used to take our Catholic faith for granted, but lately I have realized how lucky I am to be Catholic! I’m so blessed to be part of this faith that is full of so much truth and beauty. I am also thankful for being homeschooled and getting to have such a great education. I have realized how blessed I am to be able to learn so deeply about God in my schooling! - Emma, Grade 10
I’m thankful for a lot of different things, but I’m immensely grateful that I use Mother of Divine Grace. Through the religion curriculum that MODG uses, my love for the Catholic Faith has deepened tremendously over the past few years, something that certainly wouldn’t have occurred if I’d gone to a public or private school. And, of course, I’m grateful for all of my MODG friends – each and every one of you is a reflection of Christ (make sure you never forget that!).
Lastly, and least importantly, I’m thankful that I went to a classical music concert at my church. After learning that the priest who played in the concert had been to Carnegie Hall twice, I realized that I should probably do something interesting with my life. I’ve taken up the piano again, started voice lessons, and aspire to play the organ. - Philip, Grade 11
