Invest in Education

New York’s children are depending on us.

July 2013 Update

Momentum Builds As Sponsorship Tops 100 Assembly Members

With the 2013 state legislative session concluding last month, tremendous progress was made toward enacting the Education Investment Tax Credit.  The bill (# A.1826-B) now has more than 100 co-sponsors in the New York State Assembly – more than two-thirds of that 150-member house.  Bill sponsors come from every region of the state, from Long Island to all five boroughs of New York City, up to the North Country and across to Western New York.

This growing Assembly support comes in the wake of the New York State Senate passing the Education Investment Tax Credit bill last year by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 55-4.

While more work remains to be done in order to see this bill cross the finish line, it’s clear that it has a good deal of momentum moving forward.

New York Times Highlights Benefit of Catholic Schools for Minority Students

In the midst of the recent closure of more than two dozen Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of New York, the New York Times recently ran a story about prominent minority officials and parents concerned with the disappearing “springboard” of opportunity that they fear won’t be available to future generations due to the dwindling number of Catholic schools.

As noted in the story, the one solution to this crisis affecting urban, minority families and communities can be found in the Education Investment Tax Credit bill, which would provide a mechanism to encourage more charitable donations for scholarships to help families afford tuition.  (This same bill also helps public schools raise charitable donations, and teachers to supply their classrooms.)

The entire story is available from the New York Times.  The Invest in Ed Blog offers more on how the Education Investment Tax Credit could address this issue.

The Middle States Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools are pleased to announce that St. Pancras School has been awarded accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The award was announced by Dr. Thomas L. Seidenberger, Chair of the Commission on Elementary Schools and Superintendent of the East Penn School District (Emmaus, PA), following the Commissions’ April, 2011 meetings.  St. Pancras School was one of approximately 200 schools so honored by the two Commissions. 

MSCESS accreditation signifies the educational community of St. Pancras School has engaged in a rigorous process of developing self-knowledge; has hosted an evaluation team of independently-appointed educators; and has created an on-going Strategic Plan to move school improvement forward. This ten month process was governed by a Steering Committee, chaired by Philip J. Ciani, Principal, Maria Perez and Walter Stark. The process involved many elements of the St. Pancras community, including faculty, parents, and students.

Accreditation also signifies that St. Pancras School has met the Middle States Standards for a quality school. These Standards reflect current research and best practices from throughout the education profession. During the term of accreditation the school community will engage in a Commission-directed series of reports and/or site visits to maintain the vigor of the accreditation process.

Earth Day Click to go back to top of Page

Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd.
On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will take part in Earth Day™.  People of all nationalities and backgrounds voice their appreciation for the planet and demand its protection.

"LONG BEFORE the environmental movement began and global warming became a hot topic, God told us in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis that caring for creation is our moral responsibility. But evidence is mounting that we haven’t been doing a very good job, and the results are catching up with us.

Thus, people of faith, including Catholics, are going green because of their religious convictions. Some of them are finding out that saving the earth saves them money, too.  This article will present a sampling of such efforts."  From AmericanCatholic.org.

The Angelus

In the Angelus, the first part of the Hail Mary is said by the leader, while the others respond with the second part.
V.  The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.

R.  And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.

V.  Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
R.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

V.  Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R.  Be it done unto me according to your word.
Hail Mary...

V.  And the Word was made flesh.
R.  And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary...

V.  Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R.  That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord.  Amen.
Click to go back to top of Page


Queen of Heaven

V.  Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
R.  For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia.

V.  Has risen, as he said, alleluia.
R.  Pray for us to God, alleluia

V.  Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
R.  For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.

Let us pray:

O God, who gave joy to the world through the resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Glory be..
