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.
As we had planned, part of the Beyond Sunday funds returned to the parish are going towards retiring our parish debt, building our school’s endowment fund, assisting those who are poor and undertaking some capital projects here in the parish. Work will start soon on two projects at church. There are a number of concrete projects we will do: lifting and replacing the concrete sidewalk just outside our handicapped accessible doors. Every time we get a heavy rain a huge puddle accumulates there in front of those doors. Replacing this portion of the sidewalk will make the water drain away from the building toward the street. Also, the half-dozen panels in the sidewalk in front of church are crumbling and need to be replaced. In addition to that concrete work, we will have stonework done. Over the years the snowmelt and salt we have thrown down on the walks leading to several of our church doors has been absorbed by the very porous limestone of the building. One can see how that has flaked and corrupted that stone. Stone masons will be removing a portion of that stone, replacing it with other and sealing it so that we can minimize that damage in the future. While not scheduled to take place immediately, the removal/ replacement of the fences that surround the church property is coming. Not only are those fences falling down in several places, nearly all of them are covered by the dreaded wild honeysuckle. As you know, this plant is wildly invasive and is forcing out many native species of plants. So besides improving the appearance of our property, we hope to do our part to eradicate this nuisance plant.
