Message from your DRE

Dear Parents,

Welcome Back! 

I hope you've all had a restful summer vacation and that you're all healthy. 

We are still in need of volunteers to teach the Catholic faith to our students. 
If you are interested in sharing your faith with our youth, 
please contact me for more information. 

The start date for classes is postponed at this time.  Please watch the website & 
the bulletin for updates.

For those families who choose to teach the faith to your children at
home due to COVID 19, Our Sunday Visitor's Alive in Christ
curriculum has online Parent resources and lesson plans, videos and more
to help you instruct your child. Online access is free with the
purchase of the children's workbooks for grades prek - 7. The workbooks are
available at the parish center. Contact, Mary Quiroz for more information
at 433-2510 or stop by the parish center.
Please return to this website for additional information and updates or contact 
me at

God Bless you All and Stay Well,

Mary Quiroz/ DRE
