As part of our yearly tribute, we will have a special litany of the names of those who passed away this year, and then invite their loved ones to a reception in Tarantino Hall right after the Saturday five o'clock Mass.


You may bring the pictures to the rectory for Diana Rittenhouse, or email them to Lisa Veto at LisaVeto@Gmail.com -- in addition, faithful departed from previous years may be included on the bulletin board of the church vestibule, so please let Lisa know.

Día de los Muertos

Remembered here at Saint Hilary School

On Sunday, Nov. 2, All Souls Day


Señora Silvia Buckley, the Spanish teacher for our children (from Junior Kindergarten through Grade Eight) has worked with our students to prepare the traditional altars for the "Day of the Dead" which you may check out when you come to Mass on All Souls Day.


We are most grateful to Señora Buckley, and to her collaborators, for inviting us all to see what the students have prepared for this ancient and very traditional celebration of those who have gone before us to God.






Congratulations Saint Hilary!

A message from Ms. Marie Bordeleau, our Principal

Friday we had the privilege of hosting a visit from Bret Allen (Assistant Superintendent of Schools for the Department of Catholic Schools) and today we welcomed educators from around the world to see our technology program (they were visiting from Singapore, Australia, Korea, England, and Malaysia).  They were all speechless! What impressed them the most you ask . . . .your sons and daughters.  They were in awe of how articulate the students spoke about what they were doing and why they were doing it.  They were impressed with the high level of work being done in the classroom.  They were impressed with the teachers creativity and thoughtful approach to providing these learning experiences to our students.  Do we do everything perfectly everyday? No.  But are we doing some amazing work with students everyday.  Every faculty member, student, parent and member of the Saint Hilary community should be proud of what we offer students.  Thank you to Erin Turner, Mike Kavanagh and the entire Saint Hilary team for their efforts.  GO TIGERS!
