Superintendent's Letter: November is a Busy Month for Our Catholic Schools

My Dear Friends,

November is a busy month in our Catholic Schools. We keep the Catholic tradition of teaching about the feast days, and during this month we celebrate many. I encourage all parents to speak to your children about these special days of rich heritage in our Catholic faith.

It is important for the next generation to be aware of and familiar with why these special feasts, memorials, and solemnities are so important in our attempts to propagate our faith from generation to generation. On November 28, we celebrate a national holiday which also ties into our faith, Thanksgiving Day.

It is a day to truly appreciate all of the blessings that Our Lord has bestowed upon us. At the risk of sounding like a broken record (or, for the millennials, a “looped sound byte”), I encourage you once again to instill in your children to avoid calling this day “Turkey Day”. Let’s keep the ‘thanks’ in Thanksgiving.

On that note, I would like to thank all of you for supporting our schools with your time, talent, and treasures. Your support and prayers are all going to an extremely worthy cause: educating children in academics and in the faith, supporting the parents of the children we serve in providing them with a moral compass that always points to Heaven.

With great appreciation,

Henry Fiore, Jr.

Superintendent of Schools
