Today is the feast of St. Athanasius of Alexandria -- he is the patron saint of our home-learning adventures: Nine years ago, when dh was applying to study over in Austria, he had to write a commentary on one of St. Athanasius' major writings. At the same time I was discerning whether or not to pull my older two from parochial school and home-educate (as a dear neighbor had done with her two boys). Prayers to St. Athanasius for both the application and discernment about home-educating proved very efficacious!
When we needed a name for our "school", we unhesitatingly asked St. Athanasius for his patronage.
Here's our school logo:
St Athanasius of Alexandria ... continue to watch over SAAcademy ... continue to bless us as we strive to live, love and learn in the heart of our home!
[Note: since today is Sunday, we'll party for St. A. tomorrow!]
