Wellness & Wholeness at Lawrence High School

Father Francis Pizzarelli, brother of Athletic Director Patrick Pizzarelli, spoke to the entire Lawrence High School student body. The title of his talk was, “The Poverty of Caring: A Call to Wellness and Wholeness”. He spoke on the many issues that today’s young people have to deal with. He told our students a few real life experiences that he has had with teenage suicide and drinking and driving. He empowered all of our students to “make a difference” and not be afraid to reach out and help one another. He ended his presentation by asking all the students to stand and join hands with their neighbors as a sign of unity and oneness that we want our school to be. It was a very powerful experience.
