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
The International Institute here in St. Louis is the not for profit agency that the US State Department uses to help settle immigrants and refugees in our area. The organization has been around some fifty years. They were responsible for settling that large wave of Vietnamese in the 1970’s and 80’s; they were the group who also settled many Bosnians and Croatians in the 90’s. After the civil wars in Central Africa in the 2000’s they helped Africans from a number of nations to find homes and work in our region. Most recently they have been processing refugees from Central America and several countries in south Africa. As we all know, because of the long-standing conflicts in the Middle East, there has been an influx of immigrants from there. Last spring the Institute began to involve community groups, churches and synagogues especially, in helping them to do their work. In this Year of Mercy Pope Francis has asked Catholics to be in forefront of those who welcome immigrants. Next Sunday in church after the 11:00 mass there will be a speaker from The Institute who will explain the many volunteer opportunities that a church such as HR might undertake. I firmly believe this is a gospel mandate, to welcome the stranger and the alien to a new home. There are now some two dozen religious congregations in our area who have taken up this ministry, and the Institute is in need of more. Our level of involvement is up to us, but I would like to see a healthy contingent of our folks taking up this gospel work. As Dr. Purnell, our speaker at our most recent forum on race and inequality, said, how we treat those who are poor has always been a true measure of our Christianity. Many of these families arriving in St. Louis often have little more than the clothes on their backs.

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.
