For the past 5 months I have been teaching Juniors and Seniors ‘Morality and Theology of the Body’, at JSerra High School in San Juan Capistrano, CA. I have taught in Catholic High Schools before, but this is the only one I believe has a fighting chance to not be absorbed into the Culture of Death as so many others have. Having worked as an assistant superintendent of Catholic Schools on an Archdiocesan level, I have seen the full spectrum; teachers living the faith with dynamic orthodoxy, and teachers living with their same sex partners.
JSerra is working for a couple of reasons:
For the most part the people who call themselves Catholic actually believe what the Catholic Church teaches.
There is a high percentage of students from evangelical churches in the area (Orange County = Saddleback, Mariners, Calvary Chapel)
Weekly all school Mass.
Weekly time spent in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel for each and every religion class.
