St. Reneé Goupil

St. Reneé Goupil

The cross is the entryway for our salvation.

The sign of the cross is the entry-way into the Christian faith -in baptism it is the first sign we use-  a cross traced on the child’s  forehead by the priest, parents and godparents.

St. Reneé Goupil, in making the sign of the cross, over a sick Huron child purchased his entryway into heaven. ”One of the natives, certain that he had cast a spell, attacked him that very night with a tomahawk.” (from Saint Who? 9-13-2019 Magnificat).

As he died, he was given last rights by St. Isaac Jogues and passed through the pearly gates.

I am a middle school science teacher, mom of five boys and one girl, wife of one wonderful man since 1991. We live in Forest Grove, Oregon and I teach in Hillsboro at South Meadows Middle School. I am first of all a follower of Jesus, a lover of His Mama and striving to submit myself daily to the Father's Divine Will. Second of all I love my family and seek to serve my husband and children in the best ways possible. Finally, I am an enthusiastic integrator of blended classroom learning, with aspirations to teach my students how to read, write and speak competently about the Science concepts they are learning with an aim to their life-long flourishing.
