St. Anselm to receive The Mustard Seed Award from the NCEA!

National Catholic Educational Association

This evening, our Parish DRE, Janice Santanello called to convey the good news that our parish is to be the recipient of the NCEA's Mustard Seed award. Here's a brief description:

The Mustard Seed Award is given to parishes that exemplify active parent participation in their religious education programs. Through the outstanding efforts of the DRE, supported by the pastor, these parishes empower families and offer significant, creative, dynamic and consistent resources to encourage faith growth in parish and family settings.

Congratulations to Janice Santanello, Barbara Mullin, and to all of the wonderful, creative families involved with the many religious education programs of the parish. A special thanks to the Education Committee of the Parish Council, who are always "Dreaming" and "Visioning" new and effective ways to reach out to the families of our parish in their very busy circumstances. The Education committee is a real blessing to our parish community, and I am most grateful for their committment to spreading the Gospel.
