Together in Faith, Father Ray and Mr. Aldrich recently sent out a joint letter inviting school families to learn more about Together in Faith, the parish’s new at-home faith formation program for the whole household.  Please take a moment to review it if you have not yet had that opportunity.  Let’s journey together as we reimagine what faith formation can be for our entire parish community.

Dowling Catholic High School open house for 8th grade students is beginning the process of welcoming your 8th grade student to Dowling Catholic High School. To protect the health and safety of those in our community, the process will look different this year. In lieu of our traditional open house, we will be providing tours by appointment only to 8th grade families who wish to visit our campus to assist with their decision. Tours will be provided by student ambassadors and will take place this Sunday, November 8th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you are interested in touring our campus, please go to www.schoolbookings.net and use code x3k4u to schedule a time. Tours will take approximately 20 minutes.

We have also created a virtual tour to provide students and families with the opportunity to learn more about our campus and the Dowling Catholic experience. Please go to www.dowlingcatholic.org and click on Admissions to view. We hope you enjoy learning more about Dowling Catholic High School. Please don’t hesitate to contact Dowling Catholic High School if you have questions.

It’s Christmas Wreath Time!  This year due to Covid19, Troop 888 will be selling our wreaths exclusively online.  This is to protect the scouts as well as our friends and families. When you support us through our fundraisers, you are helping us pay for our summer camps, trailer, and costs to get to camps and volunteer activities. Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives.  

You can access our Fundraiser page with this link https://giftitforward.com/  

Be sure to enter our Fundraising code of TR888IA001 if you have a favorite scout, you can add their name too.  Items purchased will be sent directly to you, or you can designate another address if purchasing a gift.
