Kindness can transform someone’s dark moment with a blaze of light. You’ll never know how much your caring matters. Make a difference.

Make a difference.  Three small words, but so very significant.  As we all grow weary from this lingering pandemic, let’s remember to make a difference here at Saint Mary’s.  Let’s remember that one act of kindness can start a blaze.  Your caring does matter.

I am so delighted that a new staff member shared with me a caring moment that she experienced here at Saint Mary’s: For her our department retreat, all staff members answered questions about their favorite things. Another member of the department took the extra time after the retreat to put together playlists of all the songs that make the team members of the department smile.  A small act of caring that lit a blaze.

What student, staff or faculty member has made a difference for you this week? Email me at and share that story.  Caring creates community.
