Deanery Mass for Vocations

Deanery Mass for Vocations
On Friday, June 5, 2015 at 7:00pm at St. Agatha's Church (7th Ave and 48th Street Brooklyn) there will be a Special "Mass for Vocations" as members of our local parishes will come together to pray for an increase in Vocations to priesthood and Consecrated life and to pray for and with the women and men who are currently discerning a call. We will especially be praying for our Religious Communities during this Year of Consecrated Life and we will be praying for the 10 men who will be ordained priests for our Diocese of Brooklyn on June 27, 2015. One of the men to be ordained, Deacon Raphael Perez, a parishioner of Regina Pacis, will be the Guest Homilist. After the Mass there will be a reception in the lower church hall. During the reception there will be an opportunity for all who attend to meet and hear from some of our seminarians and men and women Religious, as well as those in Discernment and Formation.

Parental Choice in Education Agenda

Dear Friend of Catholic Education,

I need your help!  We have five weeks to get the NY State Assembly to approve a bill that would substantially increase the amount of money we could raise for scholarships in the Brooklyn Diocese and across the state.

Governor Cuomo has proposed a Parental Choice in Education Agenda that includes an Education Tax Credit to encourage donations to scholarship funds serving parents with children in Catholic and other schools.  This would increase substantially the amount of money we could raise and the number of scholarships we could award.  In Florida, a state that adopted a similar law, what started out as a $50 million program now generates almost a half-billion dollars in scholarships for students in Catholic and other private schools in that state.  

At the same time, the Governor has proposed a $500 tax credit to reimburse parents directly for their tuition payments.  That's right, $500 for every child a parent has enrolled in a Catholic or other private school!

This legislation is the top priority of His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio and all of our state's bishops.

Governor Andrew Cuomo and the State Senate already are on board.  However, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Assembly Democrats are blocking this important bill.  

They are blocking this bill for one simple reason: the influence of special interest teacher-union leaders who don't believe that parents should have the choice of which school a child attends.

Forty percent of the state's electorate is Catholic, and 2.7 million Catholics attend church.  We can win this, but only if you speak up on behalf of the children we seek to serve.

Please speak up by signing onto www.investined.org today.  This website will walk you through very simple steps to send an email to your state legislators.  

It just takes a few minutes to let our legislators hear loud and clear our demand for action on this important legislation.

Please don't set this aside to do later.  You and I know how that ends up.  Please take the time now to go on www.investined.org.   Help us help the children who most desperately need the benefits of a Catholic education.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  And, when these children grow up and are off to college, they will know that their academic and faith journey began with your decision today to take action. You will be remembered in my prayers – please remember me in yours!

Sincerely,
Monsignor Jamie Gigantiello
Vicar for Development, Diocese of Brooklyn and Futures in Education

P.S. Please don't set this request aside.  The children we serve need you to take action today.  Please go on www.investined.org right now.

Science Fair


Dear Parent,

            I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know about a couple of changes that we will be making to the Science Fair this year.  The biggest of these changes is that instead of the classroom teacher or the other students picking the winner and runner up from each class, there will be three judges who will be making the decision on Wednesday morning.  This change causes the next change, rather than each class’s winner and runner up being in Kelly Hall throughout the day to present his/her project, they will only be downstairs in the afternoon.  In the afternoon, the winner and runner up from each class will present his/her project to three different judges.  These judges will pick the winner and runner up for Grade 3-5 and for Grades 6-8.

            The second reason for this letter is to invite all of you to come by during the day tomorrow to see all of the different Science Fair Projects which our students have completed.  All of the students have put a lot of work and effort into these projects.  The projects will be on display during the school day, so please feel free to come see them any time from 8:20 AM through 2:20 PM.  As always, just be sure to check in at the office when you come into the building.

Thank you and I hope to see you tomorrow,

Mr. McNamara

Early Dismissal

Today will be a 12PM dismissal. There will not be any clubs or after-school.
Please be careful when your out and about. There may be snow covering the ground but in many places the snow is on top of ice. 
We will still have the children take their Spring photos. If your child was not here today I am sure we can have a make-up day for them.
