Bishop Nelson J. Perez Visiting
We are having a special visitor on Wednesday, November 30. Bishop Nelson J. Perez, will be celebrating mass with us beginning at 11 am in the School Chapel. Afterwards, we will have an International Buffet for lunch in the Cafeteria.
Bishop Perez is an Auxiliary Bishop in the Diocese of Rockville Centre. He serves as Vicar for the Hispanic Apostolate and Vicar for Eastern Long Island. He taught in Catholic School before he entered the Seminary and led Catholic Schools while a Pastor in Philadelphia. I served with Bishop Perez on the search committee for the new Diocesan Superintendent of Schools and continue to serve with him on other educational initiatives in Diocese.
We would like your participation on this special day. You are most welcome to join us for the liturgy. We also invite any our students to come to school dressed in outfits from their cultural heritage. We have students and families from all over the globe, and it would be awesome to have them represented. Additionally, we would like to invite anyone who is interested to send a favorite family food item to share at the International Buffet.
If you are able to participate, you can reply online.
Thank you for your consideration.
Mr. Paul P. Clagnaz
