Advancing the Mission

Message from the President It really is a pleasure to work in a school this time of the year and witness the                  out of high school, college, and graduate school. It is also a time of year when a

                   in marriage. All of this being said, and all of the optimism being established, it is amazing to me to see the lack of concrete plans developed by many people as they look forward to new experiences, work opportunities, and even marital commitments. And that is why the scriptural narrative surrounding the ascension, which occurs after Easter and which anticipates Pentecost, is such a helpful and meaningful story. The Easter mystery of the passion, death, resurrection and ascension, and the sending of the Holy Spirit (L-R) Seniors Rossi Walter, Daniel Merrill and Michael Buss receive the Men for Others Award from Rev. Philip Postell, S.J. forms one unbroken reality, which is to be understood by faith. If Good Friday says Jesus truly died, then Easter Sunday says that he is alive. And the ascension adds that the risen living Jesus is together with his Father and Lord. How do we describe the role of this faith event in our lives? We believe that we are redeemed and we enter the future with uncertainty but also with belief. The theological reality behind the ascension and Pentecost gives us the foundation for    

               and an assurance that the Spirit will take care of us even if we cannot spell out with concrete certitude our future over the next two months and two years. None of us can necessarily plan the proximate future. But for Christians who believe in the reality of Jesus Christ, there is one certainty; that is that even though Jesus died on Good Friday, he was alive on Easter Sunday and now lives with our Father in glory. That is our certainty. That is our assurance. That is our faith.

MISSION STATEMENT Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas offers young men an excellent, Catholic education in the classical Jesuit tradition with the purpose of forming a community of men of high moral principles and service to others.

To the Jesuit Community: As we announced last June, Reverend Philip Postell, S.J. will be reassigned at the end of the 20102011 school year. The Board of Trustees is responsible for hiring his successor, and I wanted to update you on the search process and selection criteria for the next president of Jesuit Dallas. To ensure the next president continues the outstanding legacy of Jesuit Dallas, we have appointed a Search Committee and charged them with conducting a national search for our next president. The Provincial of the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus has encouraged the board to approach the search with an open mind and consider all candidates, Jesuit or lay, with appropriate                  !

For that reason, we invite you to share your thoughts or comments with Carlos and the Search Committee. You can send your input to carlos@penasearch.com. In the meantime, we look forward to the continued leadership of Philip Postell, S.J. through the completion of the We Are Jesuit campaign and toward what I know will be a seamless transition to the next president of Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas.

Jesuit Foundation Welcomes Executive Director Liza Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor, J.D. joins the Jesuit Foundation as executive director. She comes to Jesuit from Ireland, where she most recently provided strategic planning and fundraising direction to clients including Glenstal Abbey School and Mary Immaculate College.

Liza holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Fordham University and a Juris Doctorate from Georgetown Law School. Announcing Lizaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival, Chairman of the Jesuit Foundation John Hubach explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lizaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education and experience uniquely position her to assist in taking our advancement efforts to even higher levels.â&#x20AC;? Liza will join the Jesuit Dallas advancement team with both administrative and fundraising responsibilities. In addition to focusing on the planned-giving program, Liza will support the J  campaign currently underway. Welcoming his colleague, Chuck Vinson, vice president of institutional advancement, commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selection committee demonstrated its commitment to excellence by the breadth of its search to attract and recruit a professional with this level of talent.â&#x20AC;?
