The second contest was the Essay contest with the topic being, “ Obstacles you may have encountered while living a life of faith”, for Grade 6, 7 and 8 only.  The 1st place winner from 8th grade (Zoey Igo) will have her essay sent to the National Essay Competition.   Here are some of her thoughts:
“Being a teenage girl, it’s really hard to remember that NOT everyone’s opinions about you matter. . . . Sure, I may not be the best soccer player, or the prettiest girl in the 8th grade, but in God’s eyes I’m perfect.  His opinion matters.  Hearing Fr. Nick’s homily the other day really made an impact on me.  He said, ‘The way you live your life is the way you’ll die.’ If people only take me for my looks, that’s their loss because it is what is in the inside that matters most.”
