Should Catholic schools observe Fish Fridays all year?
I report here a conversation a trustworthy friend recently related. He could not recall, precisely, where the conversation took place. But he promises that it did take place and assures me his memory is accurate. I, for one, was edified by his story; I relay it here, trusting it will edify others.
Characters: Bob Beefy and Solomon Salmon, two colleagues, one a Catholic teacher, the other a new principal.
Setting: Over lunch, three weeks before the end-of-year barbecue.
BB: Really, Solomon, you cannot be serious. Are you proposing that we cancel this year’s barbecue? The staff members look forward to this all winter.
