We have a month of school under our belts, and the school year continues to be running smoothly. With the wonderful staff we have, the supportive parents and the hard-working students, I am not surprised that the year is going so well.
As our school numbers have increased so have the numbers of students attending After Care. This year in addition to the staff member we have added Miss Melissa Riggle. Melissa is a Senior at Nerinx Hall and the daughter of Mrs. Carolyn Riggle who is our Art teacher. Melissa helps with snack, crafts, the homework table or anywhere assistance is needed. She has been a great addition to our After Care team.
Speaking of After Care, the staff informs me they had to dispose of many games and puzzles since they were missing so many pieces. If you have any gently used books, games, puzzles, crafts, art supplies…that are looking for a new home, we would love to have them. Please send any donations to the school office, and we will see that they make it to the After Care supply cabinets. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
I have a gentle reminder about parking on the Mason lot (lower lot near the soccer field). In the morning there should not be any parking on this lot since this forces the children to walk between moving cars that are dropping off. Frankly, that is just not safe for our students. In addition, I would like to remind you that at afternoon pick-up you should not be parking on the yellow lines along the neighbor’s fence line. This area is for the students who bike or walk to school. If you park in this area, the children are forced to go around your car and then are crossing into the driving lanes. Please follow these simple rules to keep our students safe. Thank you so much!
We are now entering our third year of being a Virtue Based Restorative Discipline (VBRD) school. Our theme for the year is “Holy Habits-Changing Hearts with Love.” Love will be the virtue that we base many of our school-wide activities.Read More
Parents In Partnership
Holy Redeemer children are blessed with a parish school devoted to their academic, spiritual, and social development. And thanks to devoted HR parents, Catholic education continues to thrive in our parish! We wish to thank the 92 Holy Redeemer school families anonymously donating $53,103 to last year’s “Parents in Partnership” Campaign.
As a result, our annual tuition increase was once again below 2.5% rather than an otherwise necessary 10%. Thanks to HR’s unique tradition of keeping tuition manageable by using these voluntary tax-deductible donations, young families continue to join our school community and existing families choose to remain.
If you would like to learn more about Holy Redeemer’s rigorous curriculum, tour our renovated facilities or inquire about further tuition assistance, please contact Principal Pam Galluzzo at 962-8989.
Gratefully Yours in Christ,
Your HR School Board
This weekend the church celebrates two feasts which always serve as a pair. First, November 1st, the Feast of All Saints, followed immediately by the Feast of All Souls. I’ve always thought of All Saints Day as a Feast for aspirants. This day we pause to remember and invoke the help of those who we believe stand now in the presence of God. They have fought the good fight, they have run the race and now enjoy a merited crown in heaven. They were ordinary human beings like ourselves but so completely gave themselves over to the life of the gospel that we can look to them as our models. The saints come to us from all ages; they are of every shape and size and nationality. If you look closely enough, you can find a patron saint for virtually every human endeavor. This is what we call the communion of saints. They are very much still with us, praying for us, making our journey in life right alongside us. When we hear about the great love of the poor by someone like St. Francis or the simple daily love of the Little Flower, we realize that we have the same call to holiness to which they so generously responded.
The Feast of All Souls is a day when we come back to earth and first consider our own lives. This day more than anything else reminds us that one day we will die, and that these very days we are now living are the right days for repenting and loving. This day also serves as an opportunity to assist those who have died, imperfect folks just like us, with our prayer. Once again, just because they are gone from our sight does not mean that they are no longer with us. As they continue on their journey into the everlasting love and mercy of God, we go with them. We loved them in this life and we continue to pray that every blessing of the heavens will be theirs. Besides those whom we have personally known and loved, we also pray for those whom the Lord Jesus loved so much: the poor, the outcast, the forgotten. Some die alone, frightened and without the tender ministries of the church, so we take up on their behalf prayers that will accompany them into God’s light and peace

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.
