Dear Saint Robert Bellarmine Families,
This Sunday is Family Mass. Please join us for Mass at 9 a.m. This is a great opportunity to come together as a faith community.
This week’s Gospel talks about peace. When we say, “peace be with you” it does not mean that things will never go wrong but it does mean that we can be at peace, no matter what happens. This week we can try to practice peace. Encourage your children to give compliments and practice good sportsmanship attitudes when playing a game together.
A reminder that your Intent to Return forms are due back by April 30th to receive the discounted registration fee. Also, please remember to attach or send in your annual statement from the church in order to receive the stewardship rate on tuition. It is really important that you provide that statement showing you have made an annual contribution for about $520. If you have lost your statement, please call the school office and we’ll get a copy from the church.
Please note there will be no school on Tuesday, April 17th due to the funeral for Monsignor Reilly. He was our pastor for many years. As a parishioner, I have many memories of him as I am sure many of you do as well. In recent years he was outside the church greeting every- one as they entered Mass and I missed him when I didn’t see him this past week. During his time as pastor, he loved to visit the classrooms and would often be seen on campus. In retirement he would take his walks around the school and help get balls that went over the fence during recess. If you plan on attending the funeral please arrive early. Fifth street will be closed to traffic to accommodated additional seating.
