HOLY HAPPENINGS FOR HOLY REDEEMER SCHOOL
Families in Catholic schools are eligible for Beyond Sunday/ Alive in Christ scholarships to help defray the cost of Catholic education. We are currently in the enrollment period for these scholarships. One application is used to apply for all scholarships funded by the Catholic Education Office, the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri, and the Today & Tomorrow Educational Foundation. To apply, please visit www.ttef-stl.org and click Apply Here. The Scholarship Office at TTEF will review your family’s application and determine if your family is eligible for any awards based on each program’s guidelines and funding availability. The application is online only and is free of cost! The deadline to apply is February 28, 2019, but I encourage you to apply ASAP since a few scholarships are first come first serve.
Families who already have a scholarship are still required to reapply every year. You were sent an email with further instructions. Please follow those directions carefully.
We have additional information about these scholarships and application requirements in the school office. Please feel free to stop and pick up a copy.
Reminder: Early registration for Preschool through Kindergarten will take place on Tuesday, February 19, and Wednesday, February 20, from 8-10 a.m. in the school lobby. Please contact the school office if you need additional information.
If you would like to learn more about our school or schedule a personal school tour, contact the school office at 962-8989.
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.
On Thursday evening of this week at 7:00 PM Bishop Ed Rice is coming to administer the sacrament of Confirmation to some fifty of our eighth grade students both from our day school and PSR. Teachers and parents have been working with them over these past several months to prepare them. In addition, our youth minister Mike Huggins has been initiating activities and programs with them in the hopes that Confirmation won’t be an end in their spiritual growth but a fresh beginning and a strengthening of their commitment as becoming-adult believers. For our part we can continue to support them with our prayers and model for them the values of the Gospel. Many in our congregation serve as godparents or Confirmation sponsors or both for any number of children. On the occasion of the sacrament’s administration here, sponsors might want to get in touch with those that they have sponsored and remind them that even though they might see them a great deal, they are nonetheless thinking of them and praying for them. Sponsors might even suggest that if that young person would have any questions, the two could share a cup of coffee or a pizza and have a chat about their faith. Imagine the impact a written note mailed to the young person could have! Almost all of our communication now comes to us over the internet or by text. How lovely it would be for them to actually receive a piece of mail in which the sponsor shares some of his or her spiritual concern.
