The Academy of St. Therese invited us to 8:30am mass on their parish website this First Friday. We can all pray together as a school community!  It will be available to everyone on the morning of Friday, April 3 on the parish website, https://www.sttheresecresskill.org/

Create a little altar in your home with a candle, a crucifix, bible and any statues you may have.

Dear Parents,

Governor Murphy has indicated that the state’s school closure directive will not be revisited until April 17th.  This makes it clear that schools will very likely remain closed beyond April 20th.  

Please read the attached letter from the Archdiocese.

ARRAY OF HOPE visits our school...
During Catholic School's Week, some of our students were asked..."What does the Blessed Mother mean to you....?" Check out this video from our students.
Visitation...the best school!
....As my study at Felician comes to an end, I have to say that Visitation Academy is the best school that I had ever been placed in as a student teacher. From the moment that I walked into the school, I felt I was welcomed by everyone, including the parents. This is exactly what happens in the Gospel when Mary visits her cousin, Elizabeth. From this perspective, I would say that the community of the Visitation Academy really lives up to its name.
