Parish Involvement Project

It is very important for parish leaders to encourage families to attend Mass regularly. Below, the Catholic Schools Office has shared some samples of letters and resources recently sent out by school principals and pastors.  Please take a look and discuss with your pastor and parish staff regarding adopting a similar approach for religious education families.  If you have a parish school, you may want to work with them.
