Our Mission Statement

St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope Regional School is a Catholic Christian learning community of children, professional educators, parents and families, clergy and religious, and lay ministers striving to live and share the Gospel message of Jesus Christ in word and action. We are dedicated to providing a child-centered learning environment in which all students, no matter what race, color, or background, are given opportunities to reach their full potential, become productive members of our society, and active members in the Church community.

Scripture Quote


"Six days before the Passover, when the Lord came into the city of Jerusalem, the children ran to meet him; in their hands they carried palm branches and with a loud voice cried out: Hosanna in the highest!"



   John 12:1, 12-13



Reflection



Lent...a time to pray, fast, and share...a time to prepare for the great feast of Easter.

Governor Cuomo has included the Education Tax Credit in his Executive Budget. This tax credit is designed to generate desperately needed scholarships for tuition-paying families, as well as additional funding to public schools. The state Senate, under Senator Dean Skelos, has passed its own version of the tax credit. In addition, the measure is strongly supported by a majority of Assembly members. But this is just the beginning of the battle. Well-funded opponents of the measure will be fighting to have the credit removed in a final budget agreement. Please take action immediately to tell Governor Cuomo and your Senator and Asssembly Member to fight to keep the Education Tax Credit in the final state budget. Action Alert

OFFICIAL NOTICE: Rockville Centre - Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure (75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.  In conformity with IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.  Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.
