Christ is risen! Alleluia! The simplicity and sacrifice of Lent is over. We can relax and enjoy the glory of Jesus and the share he has given us in the resurrection. The natural world reflects this joy. I pray that all of you have a beautiful and peaceful Easter season.
The Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and Chromebook pilot program is underway! All students in grades 4-8 have been administered a GAFE account and have been trained on using that account. All Chromebooks have arrived and all students in grades 6-8 have been trained on using the devices in the classroom. The teachers are doing a terrific job of incorporating Chromebooks and GAFE usage in the classroom.
Being that this is a pilot program we are learning and evaluating as we go. Part of that learning comes through feedback from teachers, students, and parents. We encourage you to take time to review with your child their GAFE account. Encourage your child to show you the Classroom app and share some assignments they have created.
Our plan as we continue into next year is to purchase additional Chromebooks so all of the teachers in the building will have their own Chromebook as well as having the devices for grades 4 and 5.
We appreciate any feedback you can give us. If you have any questions, comments or concerns related to the pilot program, please contact Miss Fitzgerald, any of your child’s teachers or me.
In the primary grades we have extended our i-pads to 26 due to a generous donation by an HR family. We also recently purchased a charging/storage cart so the i-pads can be kept on the primary floor. The teachers now have constant access to a small group of i-pads, but they can negotiate to share so that they can have a larger group when needed.Read More
Of several things: The parish congratulates the Holy Redeemer School graduates of 2015, as well as those who earlier graduated from our PSR program. Many years of hard work and dedication have gone into this achievement, not just by the students but by parents and teachers as well. We thank all our parishioners who by their prayer and financial support have made the education of our young people a high priority. And speaking of education, I announce that we have recently hired a new director of our PSR program. Our previous part-time director Darcy Callahan has taken a full-time job with the Make a Wish Foundation. We thank her for her excellent year of service and send her onto this new venture with our prayers. Our new PSR director is Kathleen Govero. Ms Govero has done extensive youth work with middle school and high school both at the archdiocesan and parish levels. She is working towards her certification as a CRE, and I know her youthful and energetic spirit will be a great blessing to our program.
Two events coming soon are the women’s ACTS retreat and the semi-annual welcoming reception for new parishioners. There is still time to sign up for the retreat which runs from June 11th through the 14th. There is always a wide variety of parishioners who serve on the team and make up the retreatants, so every woman in the parish, regardless of age or piety or education should feel welcome to join the group for the weekend.
Twice each year we host a small social gathering in the rectory to welcome those who have recently signed up as parishioners. In the course of any given year, there is a sizable number of individuals who move from the area and an equally sizable number who move in. Newly registered parishioners should have received in the mail an invitation to the event on Sunday, June 7th, 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm. Please give us a call and let us know you are coming to this parish council sponsored event.
Saturday Vigil: 5:00 p.m.
Sunday: 7:30, 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.
Weekday: M-F 6:15 & 8:15 a.m.
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION:
Saturday: 4:00 to 4:45 p.m.
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.
