RELIGIOUS EDUCATION NEWS

 

Just a reminder that the week of May 17 will be the last week for Religious Education classes until September.

On Wednesday, May 20, 2015, all children in grades K thru 5 will attend an end-of-year Mass at 2:30 PM in Church and a pizza party after Mass in the School Gym.

Special thanks to all of our CCD teachers and helpers for their dedication to teaching and sharing the faith with our young people throughout this past year – you really make a difference in the lives of our students. To all of our CCD students and parents – please remember to stay close to God over the Summer through prayer and attendance at Mass each week.

Registration for Religious Education classes beginning in the Fall will be held in September. Watch the weekly bulletin for dates and times. Have a great Summer!


 

BIKING 4 VOCATIONS  

 

 

The Dioceses of Brooklyn, New York, and Rockville Centre are joining forces to promote vocations across 11 states on a 29 -day biking pilgrimage.

Three seminarians from the Cathedral Seminary House of Formation in Douglaston, along with Brooklyn priest and faculty member, Fr. Marc Swartvagher, and the Vocation Director from Rockville Centre, Fr. Joe Fitzgerald, began the pilgrimage in St. Augustine, FL on Sunday May 17, and will conclude it in Rockville Centre on Sunday June, 14.

There will be a special Mass for vocations and for the pilgrims in Brooklyn on Saturday, June 13, at the CoCathedral of St. Joseph. All are invited to attend the 5:00pm Mass in support of vocations. Bishop Octavio Cisneros will be the main celebrant.
