Having a place to go - is a home. Having someone to love - is a family. Having both - is a blessing. You are the most important person in the three aspects involved in Catholic education: Home-Church-School. At your child's baptism you accepted the responsibility to bring your child up in the practice of the faith. As the first teacher of your child in the ways of the faith, you teach by your Catholic example which includes above all weekly attendance at Sunday Eucharist. Through your fulfillment of the expectation of celebrating the Eucharist with your children on a weekly basis you support the ministry of evangelization of our young people. And when you are conscientious about this obligation, our religious education ministry is more effective.
The parish carries out the Lord's ministry and maintains an active and vibrant parish and school through your stewardship of time, talent and financial resources. Church support is an obligation of every Catholic. Parents, more than other members of the parish, have a special interest in supporting the church. Because our parish school support continues to rise, the Parish Finance Council has set the minimum contribution to $400 a year per family, paid weekly or monthly, using the envelope system, January through November 30. Advancing this deadline to the end of November will provide enough time for parish accounting to be completed in time for the end of the tax year and registration. The Finance Council sees this as a reasonable expectation for parish church support. Archdiocesan policy for parishes with a Catholic school states that the parish returns to the school in support $350 per student per registered, active and supporting family.
As always we look forward with great expectation to ensure that our students reach their academic potential in order to become faithful followers of Christ and contributing citizens who know, love and serve God in a constantly changing society.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Billy O'Riordan
Mrs. Susan R. Kropog
