Catholic Social Teaching Series — Sept 16-Oct 28


Dear Parents, 

Welcome back! I hope the summer and return to school has found you and your family well. With the many adjustments needed to maintain the safety of SACA’s students and staff, I hope you’ve begun to settle into the start of the year and it has been a good one for you all. 
On behalf of St. Adalbert Parish, I’d like to invite you to take part in a 7-week series titled “Catholic Social Teaching in the World Today” which begins this Wednesday, September 16.
The series will give a foundation of  what Catholic Social Teaching is and each week will focus on various social justice, environmental, and peace issues facing people in the United States today, It will provide food for thought as Election Day approaches and give tools for applying Catholic Social Teaching to our lives.   
For everyone’s safety, it will be conducted online via Zoom.
It is FREE, but you must register to get the link to participate. For more info and to register, see the attached flyer and click here:
ALL ARE WELCOME, so I hope to see you there! Feel free to contact me at with any questions.
Be well,
Melissa Gibilaro

Please see the Fall Reopening Plan.  

Fall Reopening Plan – St. Adalbert

The Diocese created a logistics and planning committee and over the past two months, principals met to discuss the formation of the school plans.  The plans that were submitted to the state and Department of Health for each school followed a similar template and guidelines provided by the state and Diocese.   The plan is to fully reopen on September 9. 

Over the next three days, I will be hosting a series of parent meetings.  A meeting link  will be sent out in the morning each day via OptionC Parent Alert and Saint AdalbertRemind as well as a GoogleForm survey to include any questions or concerns before the meeting.   In the purpose of time and consideration, I ask that you refrain from questions specific only to your student during the meeting but am more than happy to answer your question over email or through a phone call.  

Please see the times for the Parent Meetings.
