How St. Lawrence Helped Me Be a Better Husband, Father, and Man

Posted by Francisco Sauceda on Mar 21, 2017 1:20:00 PM

My name is Tyler. I graduated from St. Lawrence Seminary in 2002. I currently live in Cottage Grove, MN with my wife Tara, and our 6 children (2 sons and 4 daughters).

Through the values taught at St. Lawrence, I learned how to truly grow, from being a boy, to becoming a man. It showed me that a man sacrifices for others, in the name of God, not himself. St. Lawrence taught me these sacrifices through work crews, public ministry, and service to those in need. It instilled the values of proper respect for life, for your brother, and most importantly, for God.

Ask a Parent: Why Boarding School Was the Right Decision for My Son

Posted by Francisco Sauceda on Jan 12, 2017 4:44:02 PM

When parents get together to socialize, they often talk about what they have in common, which often happens to be their children. If they have college-aged children, they might talk about where their kids go to school and about what they are studying. If they have kids in high school, most of the parents are used to hearing that their peers’ children attend a local public high school or maybe a local private school.
