ACRE is due in November ~ 2nd Notice

Here are a few tips to streamline the administration of the assessment in the traditional format:
New answer sheets will be used for the upcoming year! Make sure you have the latest version by going to *Submitting 2019 – 2020 results on old answer sheets will render the results invalid.
ACRE assessment booklets with a 2013 copyright are still applicable, so there is no need to purchase more if you already have the 2013 version.
We recommend only ordering the materials you need for this school year. There are exciting new changes coming as we review the content of the IFG-ACRE Assessments. Be on the lookout for future updates.
We look forward to serving you this year, for more information, contact our team at 800-707-6232 for support or email us at


Day of Prayer 2020

Each year on April 26th the Diocese remembers those affected by child abuse by hosting a day of prayer and atonement. This year the date falls on a Sunday and we will celebrate this Day of Prayer on Monday April 27th. The schools have always participated by creating a special prayer time that day. We have also participated in the noon Mass that the Bishop celebrates at the Cathedral. Please look at the attached document which shows what you did last year and let me know if you will plan to do the same prayer or will change it. Once again, the Bishop will be visiting a school to join your prayer time and we will be sending out materials for local prayer as we get closer to spring.

Seedtime is a time set aside in our Diocese to pray for farmers who grow our food, for each of us who care for the earth and recognize the Gift of God that the seeds and that growth (from city gardens to farm fields) bring us.
The Diocese will observe this day of prayer on February 4, 2020. We will again ask for your prayers. Anyone who would like to help us prepare some audio/visual materials to help us learn and celebrate please let Pat know as soon as possible. You may remember that last year Susan and the students at St Gregory Barbarigo did an awesome job – it was shared throughout the diocese through the CSO and the Office of Liturgy. If interested (great project for students) Pat will give you more information regarding this years theme…We would need your final project by Christmas vacation….


* A Thanksgiving Prayer
I’m thankful for God above and for His precious gifts of warmth and love.  I’m thankful for my home and for my family too, and for the blessings I receive the whole year through.

* Please keep the following people in your prayers:
Molly McAnerney’s Dad who has recently been hospitalized
Charlotte Davis’ daughter who is dealing with ongoing medical issues
Connie Mann’s daughter who was recently hospitalized
Andrea Harris who is due to give birth very soon

* Please keep in prayer those who may be struggling and do not let their struggles be known.  May our prayers aid them in their journey.
