RE: SCHOOL CHOICE MEETING-2/22/17
6:30 PM-Holy Cross Cafeteria
Wednesday, February 22, 2017
FROM: Bro. Stanley
I hope that you will recall on many occasions hearing me speak about School Choice. Each time I have tried to emphasize the importance of School Choice to all families and especially to present and future Holy Cross families. Already, School Choice Bill have been filed with the 85th Texas Legislature, the current Legislature.
However! No School Choice Bill will become law unless we make it happen. School Choice legislation has the strong support of Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. This is not sufficient! There is strong opposition and we must gather to overcome the opposition.
At the meeting we will answer your questions. But more importantly, we will review actions for countering the opposition. I look forward to meeting with you.
Sincerely in Holy Cross,
Bro. Stanley Culotta

MONSIGNOR DERMOT BROSNAN, PROCLAMATION PRESENTATION
Today during Mass we held the Proclamation presentation for Monsignor Brosnan. Monsignor Brosnan dedicated his life to counseling, mediation and youth activities which rapidly grew into a full time ministry for him. To address this growing need Msgr. Brosnan requested and was granted authorization by the Archdiocese to devote his time exclusively to working with persons addicted to various substances. The Proclamation will be on display for a couple of weeks.
