Our Parish School


Recently I had the pleasure of participating in the Monarch Summit, a presenta- tion on the state of our parish school. Principal Tom Waszak (seen with me in the picture above), along with his assistant principals, gave a clear and impressive ac- count of the great condition of our school. The parents of our students were there to ask insightful questions and take in the information. I am very proud to be the pastor of a parish which has such a fine school. When I visit classrooms, there is always active learning taking place. When I celebrate Mass for our students and teachers, their participation is respectful and inspiring. When students call out to greet me when they see me outside of school, it gives me great joy. And when I interact with the school’s teachers, administrators and staff, I encounter persons with a passion for what they do.

St. Edward the Confessor parish school is an integral part of St. Edward the Confessor parish. Our parishioners, even those who do not have children in our school, are very interested in the school and eager to promote it. The school, for its part, is a big draw for people to participate in the life of our parish. As Thanksgiving Day approach- es, let’s give thanks to God for our parish and our school, and pray that they may continue to flourish together.
