'SUMMER EVENING PRAYER ON THE LAWN'
Just because it's summer, there's nothing to stop us from getting together for some prayer and social time! We gathered on July 16 for a wonderful Evening on the Lawn. It was a beautiful night and over 150 parishioners enjoyed Fr. John Sureau speak about peace in our hearts and peace in the world. We will gather again on August 13 for some prayer, some fun and some family time. We begin at 7:00 PM on the lawn between the Church and the Pastoral Center. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket to be comfortable- and be sure to bring the whole family! We will pray the Evening Prayer of the Church (with preaching by a special guest) and then be treated to delicious Italian Ice- compliments of parishioner Rich Genovese and his new company Rockin' Ices. To top off the evening, enjoy a fun All American sing along led by Fr. Bill Brisotti and his magic banjo! Come join us for a fantastic evening!
CATHOLIC EDUCATION AT MARIA REGINA SCHOOL
Maria Regina School has completed it's 53rd year of fine Catholic Education. We graduated a fine group of young men and women who now begin their High School years. We have promised to pray for them and we wish them many blessings in this exciting time. Now on to more good news! Our school is experiencing new growth and we are proud to announce the opening of a second Kindergarten class. Our Early Childhood Center is closed with a waiting list available. We have accepted over 100 beautiful young children into this program and we are confident that they will excel in every way. We also welcome new children to our Elementary School and our Middle School. At last count, we are expecting a 10% increase in our numbers for the new school year beginning in September of 2015. If you are searching for an exceptional educational experience for your children please contact us. We will be glad to give you a tour (please excuse our school as we do a major cleaning for the summer months) and answer any questions you have. Payment plans are available- our tution rates are some of the best on Long Island. Next year we offer Math & Biology Regents for High School placement and so much more. Call us at (516) 541-1229 to experience Maria Regina School!
MARIA REGINA SCHOOL - THE ONLY L.I. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
WITH A FULL-TIME, DEDICATED RELIGION TEACHER!
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 accomplished 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!
