Living, Celebrating, and Proclaiming Our Faith

January 12, 2024

Dear Families,

Welcome back to a new year! A year filled with possibilities and being open to God’s plan for us. May 2024 be a year of blessings and joy for you and your loved ones.

Next month, we will be celebrating Catholic School Week! A great way to show our love and gratitude to all those involved in Catholic education – YOU, the parish, our students and the staff! We will be hosting our Open House on January 23 and would love to share some of your testimonies about St. Patrick’s School.

Please take a moment to write a few sentiments about sending your children to our school and what that means. We would truly appreciate it. Please send this and a family photograph (optional) to [email protected]. It will be published on the website and shared with the community. All entries will be eligible to win a “Family Night Out” prize!

Yours In Christ

Mrs. Maria Fonseca
