Pass on the Tradition
Holy Redeemer Parish has long dedicated itself to the spiritual development of its members through various Educational, Religious and Youth Programs. The Holy Redeemer Education Trust was established in 1993 to assist in continuing the parish’s proud tradition of providing outstanding Catholic educational experiences. The vision of the trust is to produce income to provide ongoing services to the Catholic Community of Holy Redeemer long into the future.
The trust fund promotes the Catholic Educational Programs of Holy Redeemer by providing, among other services:
· Tuition assistance at area Catholic Schools for our parish children
· Acquisition of educational materials for our Catholic educational programs
· Multi-media resources to enhance our Catholic educational programs
Holy Redeemer School opened September 3,1946 with 410 elementary students. The students were taught by the Sisters of the Holy Cross of Notre Dame. From 1952-1955 the high school grades were added; 1956 saw the first high school graduating class at Holy Redeemer. Following the consolidation of Flint area Catholic high schools into Powers Catholic, our school became a K-8 program.
Several years ago, the economic decline and population shifts in our area necessitated the closure of our K-8 program. Although our school has closed, many of our parishioner’s children attend other area Catholic schools. We continue to provide as much financial assistance to them as possible.
Our Religious Education program has grown and includes the education of both children and adults.
Our programs for children include:
· Whole Family Catechesis
· Religious Education
· Vacation Bible School
Our programs for youth include:
· Youth Group
· Summer Missions
· Confirmation Preparation
Our programs for adults include:
· RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
· Bible Studies
· Small Groups
· Guest Speakers
· Parish Missions
The mission of our church and our ministries is to always:
These various ministries and many others ensure a solid foundation for the Catholic Church at Holy Redeemer and beyond our parish community.
The viability of the Holy Redeemer tradition is dependent upon the generosity of people like you and your family. You are invited to “Pass On Your Tradition” that is Holy Redeemer. Become a part of the mission at Holy Redeemer to provide top-quality Catholic Educational opportunities to all those who seek it.
Please use the envelope that is provided in our monthly packet of contribution envelopes. Any amount will assist us in achieving our goal of providing an education that will last a lifetime, and a spiritual passion that will strengthen that relationship that means the most: with our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
