Pastor’s Note 2015
Each year the last full week of January is designated as Catholic Schools Week. Our parish is very fortunate to have such an excellent school which has served the young people of our parish and surrounding areas very well since it opened in 1961.
Pastor’s Note 2014
All parishioners received last weekend in the bulletin a letter from Archbishop Blair in which he discussed Catholic schools in the Archdiocese. There are a number of schools that are in significant trouble due to falling enrollment, rising tuition rates and evaporating parish financial resources. Our own St. Mary School, happily, seems to be an exception to the rule.
I am very pleased with the state of the parish school. It is strong financially, academically, and spiritually.
