As a community of Baptized Catholics, endowed by God with special gifts and nourished by the Eucharist, we at Maria Regina Parish recognize our mission to call forth these gifts to help build the Body of Christ.
MERCY, NOT SACRIFICE
Lent 2016 during the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis calls for mercy, not sacrifice. This video brings the message of mercy to all with biblical quotes as well as the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Please share to inspire! Song by Above the Broken.
LOOKING FOR MUSICIANS!
We are so proud to have begun a new and exciting chapter in the wonderful Ministry of Music here at Maria Regina. Our Choirs- the Adult Choir and the Bell Choir- looked and sounded beautiful for our Thanksgiving Liturgy. Our Youth Choir is growing in numbers and enthusiasm!
We are proud to announce a 10 day pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi for the Holy Year, 2016. The dates of this exciting trip are October 15 - October 24, 2016. While our pilgrimage is sold out, we ask your prayers and we will also be praying for our parish families.
MARIA REGINA SCHOOL LOOKS FORWARD TO OUR 55th YEAR
Our school continues to grow as we look to 2016/17- our 55th year of Catholic Education! We are welcoming many new families to our school and we are thrilled that our Nursery and Pre-K continues to be filled to capacity each year. We continue to improve our curriculum, including new texts, reading programs and the latest in student technology, including personal i-pads and Google work pads.
We are happy to announce the beginning of a new ministry here at MR- the Ministry of Welcoming. To register in our parish, new parishioners are invited to bring their families to an evening session (offered once a month) where they will be introduced to members of the Parish Staff who will welcome them into our faith community. If you would like to register, or have any questions about our parish, please call (516) 798-2415.
