Dear Bishop Chatard family and friends,
As we move deeper into this period of response to our nation’s public health crisis, it has come to our attention that members of our Bishop Chatard school community are among those experiencing economic hardship through job loss, furloughing or reduction in salary/wages. It is our intention to support these families in any way we can, and we are looking to you to help us respond to their needs.
In response to this crisis, we are changing our traditional Trojan Day of Giving to Trojans Helping Trojans Emergency Relief, a week-long fund-a-need effort to build an emergency relief fund for Bishop Chatard families directly suffering from a loss of income due to COVID-19. Every dollar donated will directly benefit these families and allow them to continue their children’s education at Bishop Chatard.
Since transitioning to an eLearning model on March 16, Bishop Chatard has continued to work hard to provide the high level of academic instruction and virtual student life activities that are an integral part of our mission to form the whole person. It is remarkable to witness the creative and determined efforts of our faculty, staff, coaches and administration working diligently to keep a semblance of normalcy in our students’ lives.
I believe that this challenging time in our world is a God-given opportunity to deepen our faith and our love for each other, including the most vulnerable within our own school community. Please consider a gift that will assist our families in need, and we ask you to pray for all of us tasked with serving the remarkable school community we know as Bishop Chatard High School. We continue to offer our thanks and prayers for all of you and your well-being, staying safe in Our Lord’s tender care.
God bless you,
Bill Sahm, President
