1. Monday, May 21, will be the Mystery Trip for our eighth graders.
2. Tuesday, May 22, 7th and 8th Grade Picnic at Blackburn Park. The eighth grade gives advice/guidance to the seventh grade as they “hand-over” the school to our new leaders.

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.
I certainly hope many of you get the opportunity to vacation and recreate during these summer days. Summer is a terrific time to reconnect and spend time with family. I know of many families in the parish that head out with extended families to spend a week or two in places like Hilton Head, Michigan and Wisconsin. For many of my generation such a trip would have been a luxury we could not have afforded. We in this country should never lose sight of the blessings so many enjoy. We hear lots of talk about people feeling entitled, and I sometimes worry that we take for granted the prosperity that is ours, very often just by the accident of our birth. That’s why we here at HR make all the efforts we do to reach out to those who do not enjoy our advantages: Our St. Vincent de Paul Society, Room at the Inn, Give a Meal a Month, casseroles for St. Patrick Center, Feeding the homeless at Sts. Peter and Paul, and many other individual initiatives of our parishioners. A portion of the funds we receive from Beyond Sunday is tithed to those outside our parish who are in need. The last bit of income from the envelopes for Debt Reduction will go to our sister parish in North St. Louis, St. Elizabeth the Mother of St. John the Baptist. They are working off a debt they incur each year through their work they do in that neighborhood.
