Discover Catholic Schools Week

Discover Catholic Schools Week

My Dear Friends,

November is a special month for our Catholic schools as we celebrate Discover Catholic Schools Week and our national Thanksgiving Day. We have a lot to be thankful for this year with the reopening of all our schools during these difficult times. While visiting the schools, it was wonderful to see all the children adapting to wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands and other measures to ensure our health. At times it appears the children adjust better than some of us adults.

The month also begins with the Solemnity of All Saints on November 1st and the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed or All Souls Day on November 2nd. Although these holy days are celebrated and discussed in our schools it is also a perfect opportunity for parents to speak to their children about the rich heritage in our Catholic faith. This is an occasion to strengthen our wonderful parent/school partnership.

Thanksgiving Day is also a day of celebration of our faith. We must remind our children of all the wonderful blessings bestowed on us by our wonderful Father. It is a time to celebrate but also to give thanks to the Lord Our God. One of the hallmarks of Catholic education is the tremendous sense of community found in our schools. Therefore, it is also a time to thank all those who help to support our schools. From administrators, teachers, staff and parents along with our wonderful volunteers. It is because of your gifts of time, talent and treasures that our Catholic schools continue to flourish here in the diocese. A special thank you to Bishop Cote, who has been a staunch supporter of Catholic education in the Diocese of Norwich.

With great sincerity,

George A. Milot Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

An Autumn Journey

An Autumn Journey
With the arrival of Autumn, I hope that you get to visit your favorite farm or orchard, enjoy a piece of warm apple cobbler and sip your favorite pumpkin-spiced coffee. Whether it’s the start of a new school year, a new job or perhaps a residential move, autumn can bring many changes. A journey can be defined as any course or passage from one stage or experience to another. As “One Faith, One Family,” we pray for the members of our diocese and for our Catholic school students as they continue their journey to grow in Christ’s love as the school ye...
