“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1
On Thanksgiving Day, we share a great feast, but this holiday is not about turkey and stuffing. It is about family and community; a welcome reminder that we are not alone, and that the good things we have are all gifts from God. Here at Holy Redeemer we have many things for which we are grateful. I am thankful for our wonderful and talented staff who dedicate much time to their students. I am grateful for our students who work hard at their studies and who enthusiastically embrace the virtues being taught. When I look at our students, I am hopeful for a strong future for our country. As always I am thankful for the parents and the support you offer to our staff and school.Read More
This Wednesday, March 1st is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent. Isn’t it marvelous that here is yet one more opportunity for us to return to God with hearts and minds renewed. We celebrate four Masses on that day: 6:15 and 8:15 am, 12:00 noon and 7:00 pm. Ashes will be distributed immediately following the homily. There are many ways to help us experience this period as a singular time of God’s grace. Some choose to attend daily Mass; we have two each day, Monday through Friday, at 6:15 and 8:15. As with the Season of Advent, the daily readings are tailored to the themes of the season. Others choose to pray the Stations of the Cross which we do every Friday afternoon at 2:40, sometimes praying with the school children, other times not. Still others find performing a penance or making a particular sacrifice through the season brings them closer to God and to our suffering brothers and sisters. Lent is also a great time to devote ourselves to the service of others. You might choose to join us on the second Friday of the month when we go to Sts. Peter and Paul to feed the homeless, or devote some time to help members of the Haiti committee pack the sea container we are sending down in the spring. It is never wrong to contribute a meal of the month or prepare a casserole for our friends at St. Patrick Center or make a monetary gift to our own parish St. Vincent dePaul Society. They work not just in Lent but throughout the year to help those in need right here in our Webster-Rock Hill community. Regardless, we should all do something, even if it just setting aside five minutes a day to read the scripture, pray the rosary or make an overdue phone call to that friend or family member we have been neglecting. Lent serves up that very sobering reminder that we are dust and to dust we shall all return. Time is short; we should be using what time we have in hand right now to be as fully alive in Christ Jesus as we can.

Holy Redeemer Parish School of Religion (grades 1-8) acts as a support for the students and families of the parish as they live out their Baptismal call and give witness to the Good News in word and deed. It is the desire of the program to incorporate the students and their families into the faith life of the parish community.
