Prayer for Healing

Posted on June 4th, 2020

I write to you in light of the recent Mass of the Solemnity of Pentecost and in the current unrest that our nation experiences. Fr. Rich’s beautiful Pentecost homily, recorded and sent to the Providence Family, encouraged us to become the fire of God’s love. Like the energy that summoned courage and excitement in the early apostles, we ask God to make our hearts burn with love.

A Letter from Fr. Merk

Posted on April 7th, 2020

I was in the process of writing a letter to our various Board members to inform them of Providence Catholic’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic.  In doing so, I was quite impressed with the number and quality of things we are doing, many behind the scenes, to navigate our Providence Family through rough waters.  And so, I decided to provide this report to all of the Providence Families to let you know how we are facing such a challenging situation.

Reflections on PCHS

Posted on March 20th, 2020
Recently, our faculty and staff took part in a retreat where four members of the PCHS family came back to talk about their experience: Mr. Pergi, Mr. Palmasani, Colleen Mitros Manuszak ’08, and Jackie Quirke Poulos ’05.

You can read Colleen’s reflection here: Colleen Manuszak 2008 

They provided a unique insight into what it has meant to them to be a part of Providence Catholic as faculty, as students, as coaches, and as friends, and brought to mind many fond memories. If you have a reflection you’d like to share with us, please email it to celtics@providencecatholic.org.

We will share more of the reflections in coming weeks.
