SUNDAY, SEPT. 21, 2014 CATECHETICAL SUNDAY CELEBRATED AT 10:30 AM MASS

This year, the Church around the nation will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 21, 2014; and here at Catechetical-Sunday-2014Maria Regina at the 10:30 AM Mass. This year's theme is "Teaching About God's Gift of Forgiveness."  Catechists from our parish will be recognized and commissioned for their ministry in the year ahead. Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. On Catechtical Sunday we all rededicate ourselves to this mission as a community of faith. Please join us for this special Mass!

MARIA REGINA SCHOOL - THE ONLY L.I. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
WITH A FULL-TIME, DEDICATED RELIGION TEACHER!  Catholic Faith 2
When you think of Catholic Education, you think of discipline, outstanding academics, a family-centered atmosphere and, of course, the Catholic faith taught and lived.  Here at MR we want to send forth students who have been formed with deep consciences, morals and a working knowledge of their faith which will asssist them to move into the High School and College Years, ready to serve the world one day. This can only be accomplised through a consistent and challenging spiritual awareness that stems from a teacher who is not afraid to confront the issues of the world and place them in the context of the Gospel of Christ, our Lord. We now have such a person in Mrs. Barbara Haase.  Mrs. Haase will work with the mid and upper grades in their Religious Studies.  She will touch hearts, share faith, catechize and exemplify service.  Let us pray for Mrs. Haase and the young people she will work with each day- that the Holy Spirit may continue to breathe through the hallways of MR and each person therein!
