January 13th-Memorial of St. Hilary
Today, the Rocha family wrapped up our second week on the ground in Northwest Arkansas. The family is adjusting and we are making headway in getting Ozark Catholic off the ground.
I was able to add to our community of OCA supporters as I reconnected with Joe Patch, IV, who attended St. Thomas High School with me. Joe was our varsity football, contributing to our winning the State Championship in 1988. He recently relocated to NWA where he has family roots.
This journal entry also serves the purpose of keeping a strong presence on social media and really getting the word out about NWA. The Planning Board has also been foundational in its support of spreading the word and seeing opportunities that will benefit OCA.
Friends, Readers, and Supporters in Northwest Arkansas, in Houston, or wherever you live, LIKE the school Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, and share this post. The twentieth century man of letters, Russell Kirk, said often that we in America and in the West, “Stand on the shoulders of giants.” Let us stand with those who have worked diligently over the years to make OCA a reality. Ozark Catholic Academy is coming in the Fall of 2018 — Stay with us, Support us and Spread the word.
