Although our sessions with our Catechists will end, I will email Grades K/1, 3, 4-6 weekly parent pages and resources for you to use with your Gospel Weeklies Home Guides April 10 – May 8. Grade 2 First Eucharist Families will also receive updates and reminders as we approach the Sacrament of First Holy Communion! I will also send information regarding any upcoming Parish events and opportunities that you and your family may wish to participate in.


I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our Catechists for their time, and commitment to sharing the good news of our Faith with our children and families:

Grade K/1 – Lisa Balistreri, Grade 2 First Reconciliation and First Eucharist - Rob and Julianne Messia, Grade 3 -Michelle Dennis, Gr. 4 Matt and Laura Perfetti, Grade 5 Chris and Alex Rotondi, Grade 6- Linda Kane.

We are very grateful and blessed to have you!


I also want to thank all the parents for their flexibility and support as we transitioned out of Covid Restrictions and into our new Gospel Weeklies Program. We will be evaluating our current catechetical model and delivery options and will be asking for your input in the weeks ahead. I am blessed to work with you all! Many, many thanks!
