Welcome to a new school year! We are a few weeks into the first quarter and everything is running smoothly. With such a dedicated staff and supportive parents it is easy for all of us to quickly return to our schedules. As I walk through the building and visit classes each day, I see everyone engaged in meaningful work and enjoying their time with each other. It is great to be part of such a wonderful community.
Our theme for the year is: Gentle Hands, Gentle Words, Gentle Hearts. The theme encompasses our goal to instill the values of kindness and compassion into all that we do. We are currently running a T-shirt decorating contest to choose the virtue T-shirt we will have for the year. After we choose the winning entry, we will be sending home an order form where you will indicate the size your child will need. After everyone turns in the forms we will order the T-shirts and begin wearing them with our uniform bottoms on each of our All School Masses.Read More
Our parish social in Blackburn Park last Sunday was a great success. Good weather, large turnout, a well-organized event. As the saying has it: A good time was had by all. Thanks to all who contributed time, effort, resources. A special thanks to Ginger Drone and Julie Malloy who led the parish council’s organization and execution of the event. We got the idea four years ago to sponsor a parish gathering–a non-fund raiser–at which folks could just gather and enjoy one another’s company. For that same reason we revived the parish’s practice of holding a semi-annual new parishioner reception. We have also recently added the parish potluck supper which precedes our celebration of the Holy Thursday liturgy. I am glad to see that other arms of the parish are also sponsoring such fun events: HRAA’s opening of the fall sports season party; the school’s ice cream social and the PTO’s movie night on the field. Folks are routinely generous to events that actually have as one of their main purposes to raise funds–a visiting missionary, sponsor a student in Haiti, the parish auction, etc–but sometimes it is just good to be a parish together having some fun, sharing the Eucharist, getting to know each other. I am certainly open to other such opportunities if there is someone or some group who would want to organize and head up a similar gathering for our parishioners.

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.
