Before we close the books on this school year, we should take a look back and reflect on some of the accomplishments of this past year. There were many accomplishments and successes for which we should give thanks.
First, we recently graduated 24 eighth graders in a beautiful ceremony on May 27. All of our eighth graders were accepted to private Catholic high schools with many of these students receiving scholarships from either community organizations or from the high schools themselves. Congratulations to the eighth graders and their families! We will miss you and wish you well in your educational journey. Please come back to visit often.
One thing we know from students who come back to visit is they feel that Holy Redeemer has prepared them well for high school. In fact, last week when I attended the Principals’ Institute I was told by several high school administrators that they can always recognize former Holy Redeemer students since they are so well prepared. This news is certainly worth celebrating.
This year as I visited classrooms, I witnessed a great deal of innovative teaching, so I would like to thank all of the teachers for their dedication to their students and their craft. I saw teachers embracing technology in the classroom and using it to help their students research, create, and publish projects. I witnessed an increase in writing in all grades as we worked as a whole school on writing across the curriculum. In addition, I saw hands-on science and math learning. I feel honored to work amongst staff members who continue to raise the bar each year and provide their students an excellent education.Read More
Sunday, August 9th is fast approaching, and that day marks the first anniversary of the events in Ferguson. Now that the initial upset, violence and reaction has subsided, some may feel that matters have been handled. That is far from the truth. The underlying inequality, racism and distrust that made those awful days possible is still very much with us, and not just here in our metropolitan area but throughout this nation. There is much conversation and many changes of heart that still have to occur. We should not let these days pass by unremarked. Every family, but especially those with children should be having a frank conversation about race and violence and mutual acceptance. If our families are not leading the way and becoming actively involved in efforts to turn these sad circumstances around, who will? The Archbishop sent along a prayer that he borrowed from the Archdiocese of New Orleans. He encourages us to pray the prayer during that week of August 9th and throughout the weeks and months ahead.
PRAYER FOR RACIAL EQUALITY
Loving and faithful God, through the years people of our Archdiocese have appreciated the prayers and love of our Blessed Mother in times of challenge, disaster and illness. We come to you, Father, with Mary our Mother, and ask you to help us in the battle of today against violence, indifference, and racism. We implore you to give us your wisdom that we may build a community founded on the values of Jesus, which give respect to the life and dignity of all people. Bless parents that they may form their children in faith. Bless and protect our youth that they may be peacemakers of our time. Give consolation to those who have lost loved ones through violence. Hear our prayer and give us the perseverance to be a voice for life and human dignity in our community. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

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.
