It was part of the prayer of Jesus: “Now this is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ” (John 17:3).

The teachers and administrators from Jordan (Yousef, Suha and Suhail) presented to Nancy Hemminger a banner bearing the motto of the Latin Patriarchate Schools: “Ut Cognoscant Te.”

“That They Might Know You” is the mission and goal of all who teach and pass on the faith. It is the mission and goal of every Christian household. It is the goal and mission of every Catholic school and every Catholic parish throughout the Holy Land and, yes, in Milford, too: that all will know the only true God and his Son, Jesus Christ.

“That they might know you” is why Yousef, Suha and Suhail teach their students.
