It is a regular Mass liturgy injected with fun and joy. We will have one per month and invite any teens who wish to be involved to respond to this email and let us know! School and RE students will be assigned roles in different months, but High School teens are needed too.

SAINT ALPHONSUS LIGUORI PARISH AND SCHOOL HELP THE FIRE VICTIMS!

 

Saint Alphonsus Liguori Parish and School joined on Sunday, July 22, with several other organizations to give back to the community.  We sponsored a pancake breakfast fundraiser for the victims of the devastating fire in Prospect Heights.   Over a hundred families lost everything!  Many organizations helped support this event including the fire/police department, the Lions Club, as well as other churches.  Thank you to everyone who came and gave so generously. Thousands of dollars were raised and one hundred percent of the donations are going directly to the fire victims.  As well, clothing and other items are pouring in!  Saint Alphonsus Liguori is proud and grateful to be a part of such a wonderful community.

 Saint Alphonsus Liguori School has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to use the immense power of digital media to explore, create, connect, and learn, while limiting the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying. The recognition acknowledges our school's commitment creating a culture of digital learning and citizenship.

 "We applaud the faculty and staff of Saint Alphonsus Liguori School for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students' education," said Liz Kline,  VP, Education Programs, Common Sense Education.

The free resources are currently used in more than 100,000 classrooms nationwide.
