President's Christmas Message

Dr. Michael Carey
A light shall shine upon us this day; for the Lord is born to us.

Dear Cardinal Hayes Community,

As we pass through the solstice and the darkest time of year, in the most difficult of years, we are
reminded of the light. While we look forward to a new day and a new year, I want to
acknowledge the light and the hope of this Christmas day.

It is apparent looking back that you are the light. Through the cautious watching and waiting of
this past year, the Cardinal Hayes students, faculty, friends, and family have shone brightly. You
successfully continued the work and mission of Cardinal Hayes with a determination that is
inspirational. Because of your faith, Cardinal Hayes remains the bright light in New York
Catholic education.

I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas. I applaud your tireless dedication of this
past year and I look forward with great hope and optimism to the light of the New Year.

Merry Christmas,

Michael Carey
