St. Thomas Aquinas High School encourages students to reach beyond themselves and render service to our brothers and sisters throughout the community and world. Service is a component of evangelization. As a Christian, living in a secular world, this is a critical facet of character. We cannot emphasize the Christian value of service enough.
So when he had washed their feet [and] put his garments back on and reclined at table again, he said to them, “Do you realize what I have done for you? You call me ‘teacher’ and ‘master,’ and rightly so, for indeed I am. If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow so that as I have done for you, you should also do. Amen, amen, I say to you, no slave is greater than his master nor any messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you understand this, blessed are you if you do it. John 13:1217 NAB
