Diocese Honors Teachers at 23rd Annual Educators Mass


“It was a very fulfilling career seeing the growth in my students through the school year was very gratifying.” Maryanne Leone has dedicated 29 years of her life to Education.

On Sunday September 9th, at the Cathedral of St. Patrick educators from around the Diocese gathered for the 23rd Annual Diocesan Mass for those Dedicated to Education. The Most Reverend Michael R. Cote, D.D., Bishop of Norwich was the main celebrant.

The Homilist Reverend Francis J. Gilbert, addressed the congregation, reminding us that we are all needed, like the gears that would steer ships, to help Bishop Cote to teach our faith, as we grow the body of Christ. He spoke of Pope Paul VI and his “Declarations of Christian Education “of the Catholic calling”, that we should be concerned with raising up our children with morals and a conscience, showing them and teaching them the Love of Christ.

We as the Church have the responsibility to pray and to teach the way of salvation. “Your duty, your passion, your life’s effort bears great consequences for the well-being of other people. Both on a temporal basis as well as on a spiritual basis.” He reminded us to keep our hearts and minds open to teaching and praying, evangelizing all, wherever God has us in life. May we all be zealous, and work together to build up the church, and grow the body of Christ
