The Road to Recovery: Kolbe Academy

By | September 11, 2019


This is a momentous occasion. Today this
is the first ever Catholic recovery high school in the nation. Today, as we stand here at the beginning
of this wonderful new era of Catholic education, let us thank God that the
people of Kolbe Academy had the vision needed to bring this remarkable school
to fruition for the entire Lehigh Valley community and beyond. We recognize that
recovery is such a critical part of how we stop 70,000 deaths in the nation.
Science tells us that faith helps us get into recovery. Faith helps us stay in
recovery for the rest of our lives. But you know, at a time when Catholic schools
across the country are closing, the bishop had the courage to say we’re
gonna open a new one. It takes a community, a community of faith, to come
together for an initiative like this. Something that’s never been done before
and we did this. In the book of Esther in the Old Testament, there’s a
verse that says “perhaps you were made for such a time as this, my friends,” that
time is now. And I invite you to join us on this incredible journey of Kolbe
Academy.
