We have a month of school under our belts, and the school year continues to be running smoothly. With the wonderful staff we have, the supportive parents and the hard-working students, I am not surprised that the year is going so well.
As our school numbers have increased so have the numbers of students attending After Care. This year in addition to the staff member we have added Miss Melissa Riggle. Melissa is a Senior at Nerinx Hall and the daughter of Mrs. Carolyn Riggle who is our Art teacher. Melissa helps with snack, crafts, the homework table or anywhere assistance is needed. She has been a great addition to our After Care team.
Speaking of After Care, the staff informs me they had to dispose of many games and puzzles since they were missing so many pieces. If you have any gently used books, games, puzzles, crafts, art supplies…that are looking for a new home, we would love to have them. Please send any donations to the school office, and we will see that they make it to the After Care supply cabinets. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
I have a gentle reminder about parking on the Mason lot (lower lot near the soccer field). In the morning there should not be any parking on this lot since this forces the children to walk between moving cars that are dropping off. Frankly, that is just not safe for our students. In addition, I would like to remind you that at afternoon pick-up you should not be parking on the yellow lines along the neighbor’s fence line. This area is for the students who bike or walk to school. If you park in this area, the children are forced to go around your car and then are crossing into the driving lanes. Please follow these simple rules to keep our students safe. Thank you so much!
We are now entering our third year of being a Virtue Based Restorative Discipline (VBRD) school. Our theme for the year is “Holy Habits-Changing Hearts with Love.” Love will be the virtue that we base many of our school-wide activities.Read More
Parents In Partnership
Holy Redeemer children are blessed with a parish school devoted to their academic, spiritual, and social development. And thanks to devoted HR parents, Catholic education continues to thrive in our parish! We wish to thank the 92 Holy Redeemer school families anonymously donating $53,103 to last year’s “Parents in Partnership” Campaign.
As a result, our annual tuition increase was once again below 2.5% rather than an otherwise necessary 10%. Thanks to HR’s unique tradition of keeping tuition manageable by using these voluntary tax-deductible donations, young families continue to join our school community and existing families choose to remain.
If you would like to learn more about Holy Redeemer’s rigorous curriculum, tour our renovated facilities or inquire about further tuition assistance, please contact Principal Pam Galluzzo at 962-8989.
Gratefully Yours in Christ,
Your HR School Board
By the time you read this, Bishop Rice and I will already have returned from our four-day convocation. One of the areas of concentration was to sharpen our skills as pastors: being good organizers, attentive caregivers and effective administrators. Few realize that we actually receive very little formal training on how to run parishes. That’s one of the reasons why pastor’s like myself rely so heavily on the experience and expertise of our parishioners. Thanks to so many of you who assist me in making decisions about the parish, things that include finances, programming and staffing. Without your very capable assistance my job would be much more difficult.
And speaking of thanks, I want to extend the parish’s gratitude to all those who helped make last week’s parish social a success. The parish council was instrumental in organizing and carrying off a great gathering on an absolutely beautiful day. Now that so many of you have seen some folks with name tags identifying them, I hope we feel as though we know each other just a little bit better.

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.
