January 31, 2021
As Jesus was teaching, a man with an unclean spirit came to the synagogue and asked if Jesus had come to destroy them. Jesus ordered the spirit out of the man, who shrieked violently as the spirit departed. The people were amazed at the authority He had over the spirit.
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
Today, January 31st, begins Catholic Schools Week in the United States.
There are 2.5 million young people attending Catholic Schools in America.
Our Catholic Schools from Prek K to College have played a significant role in American society. At Resurrection School, we have a very proud tradition since 1925. Last year, we experienced a 20% increase in enrollment. During Catholic Schools Week, we pray for our students, school families, principals, teachers,
alumni and our benefactors.
The future at Resurrection School is bright.
Enrollment is robust for September.
Preparations for our annual Catholic Schools Week celebration are well underway.
While it may look a bit different than years past, we are busy planning fun activities for the students.
This year CSW will run from Sunday, January 31 thru Friday, February 5! The schedule for the weeks is as follows:
Ice Cream Parties for classes
Student Appreciation Day- Spirit Wear Day and students will receive a special RES gift from the PTO.

Parish Religious Education classes
will not be returning to in-person instruction in January as we had hoped
Although we are disappointed by this development, the safety of our students, parents, and catechists is our first priority.
e will continue with our remote learning plan until the end of Easter break.
At that point, we will reassess the situation and determine if we can return to in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. We sincerely appreciate the time and effort that students are taking with their studies and are grateful for the support that parents are providing during this difficult time.
SUPPORTING OUR MISSION
A big “thank you” to all of those participating in online giving with We Share! Online giving has been a big help to our parish. Resurrection has received more consistent donations and been able to re-prioritize office tasks. We Share saves the administrative staff valuable time with its ability to accept credit and debit cards and to make automatic withdrawals from checking and savings accounts. This means more time to serve you and our mission as a parish. No matter how you give, your gifts are always appreciated! If you have not yet made the switch to online giving, we invite you to consider doing so. Online giving offers our parish a stable, sustainable future. We know that you share in this vision and we’re excited about giving our parishioners many ways to participate in our growth as a parish family. Thank you for your support!
