Can you be a mentor family?

May the Holy Triune God live in our hearts and in the hearts of all people!

We are blessed with another school year to provide Catholic education and formation for all our students.  Together, we can design and carry out the best faith-based experience for all our children and our families. 

This year, we are inviting parents to become mentors to new families so we can help everyone feel welcome and assist everyone in participating in our school community.  Can you be a mentor family?

A Mentor family is asked to:

  • be familiar with the school parent-student handbook, school calendar, school activities, school website, school newsletters, and similar resources
  • contact the assigned new family by phone, email or letter for a self-introduction on or before August 31
  • offer time and help with any questions about school calendar, school activities, school handbook or similar topics
  • provide to the new family honest and truthful communication, correct and current information or direct the new family to a person or resource who may have the needed information
  • take time to contact the new family every month to follow up how they are doing and to remind them of meetings or activities
  • invite the new family to Sunday Mass or other prayer or faith activities in the Catholic Church or in the School
  • strive to build a faith-centered, school-supportive, life-giving and positive friendship with the new family
  • direct the new family to contact the school and the administration for ideas, suggestions, concerns or issues or for a request for another Mentor family
  • respect the privacy and comfort zone of the new family (such as by asking for the best day or time to contact every month or by verifying the need for monthly reminders or stopping any form of gossip)
  • inform the school principal on or before May 19, 2016 when the mentor-mentee family relationship is concluded by providing in person, by phone, by email or in writing a brief feedback of this mentor family assignment.

If you determine that you can be a mentor family, please call the school or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it on or before August 27, 2015 to be included in the list of possible mentor families.  The principal and the pastor will decide and assign families.  We are announcing the mentor-mentee families during the Annual PS-K-Gr6 Parents Assembly.

St. Patrick, pray for us!
