My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Saint Cecilia Parish has been blessed for over fifty years with having a parish school. So many in the parish community from both the past, present, and hopefully the future have, do and will make the gift of a Catholic Education available to the young people not only of our own parish but to those from other parish communities and other faith traditions!
So many dedicated laity, religious and clergy have participated in not only making Catholic Education available in our parish but also ensuring that the Gospel of Jesus Christ in learned and experienced in such a way that our young people will desire to pick up the mantle and continue the Tradition.
In addition, those involved in our school, (parents, teachers, administrators, parish and school staff and most importantly our students) strive to maintain an excellent standard in Christian living, service, and academics. Saint Cecilia School and Parish are proud that we have been able to incorporate certain programs that enhance these efforts. These are such things as the Saint Cecilia Pre-School Program, Childcare Program, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and Special People in Catholic Education (SPICE). Information about all of these can be found on the website.
Now that Saint Cecilia School has celebrated its Golden Jubilee, we are already excited about moving forward to its Diamond Jubilee in 2035 and beyond so that faith formation, academic instruction can be shared with not only our present children but also with their children and with their children’s children.
I invite all of you to become part of the excitement that is the Saint Cecilia School experience whether it is by enrolling your child/children, visiting the school, volunteering in the school and praying for the school’s ministry and its future.
Praying that God bless all of you, I am
Sincerely in Christ,
Father Thomas Buffer
