Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
On Monday, June 5, 2017, our Parish School, All Saints Academy, will have its Eighth Grade Graduation ceremony. We have eleven students from St. Alphonsus who will be graduating. They are:
Congratulations to these St. Al’s students and their families. With All Saints Academy not being physically located on our St. Al’s campus, we can lose sight of the fact that we still have a Parish Catholic Elementary School. ASA is very much alive and has an excellent curriculum and dedicated staff. Many of the ASA families are involved here in the ministries of our parish and I am grateful for their participation in their home parish.
We must support all our families who have students in either Catholic or public schools. Parents have tremendous responsibilities in raising their children. I am so proud of and grateful for our Faith Formation Programs and our Catholic Schools which help parents in the faith development of their children.
Pray for all our young people, their parents, and their schools, public or Catholic. They are all members of St. Alphonsus Parish and we cherish them.
Congratulations to all our elementary, high school, and college graduates! God bless you with His deep peace and joy always!
Joyfully, Fr. Pat, C.Ss.R.
