NWI #1 Student Article
One of Andrean’s own students writes for Northwest Indiana Life in a monthly series called #1 Student NWI. NWI Life helps student writers gain experience by writing about their schools once a month.The latest of many articles to come from Danielle Collins is about Andrean’s summer sports, courtyard renovations, and a faculty and student shout out.
We thank NWI Life for giving an Andrean student the opportunity to share the latest 59er stories and to Danielle for her hard work. We look forward to more #1 Student NWI articles in the coming school year.

Andrean’s Krzyston has dedicated his season to his grandfather’s memory:
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing.”
Poor Martha, ever remembered as a worrywart with poor priorities. But someone had to serve the meal, right? Two things to note: one, Martha had a strong sense of justice. It wasn’t necessarily wrong to point out how she felt abandoned to do the work alone. She was thinking, no doubt, of the comfort of her guests. And two, Jesus reminds us that there is a higher order at work. In his presence, the normal rules may not apply or may be rewritten altogether.

thank you for everything you give us. As we go through this day, we know that the
most important thing to remember is that you love us. No matter how hard our day is,
at least we have you.
Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
