Open House for Our Parish School

A Letter from Our Pastors

Dear Catholic parents,

First, as your pastors, we want to thank you for your faithfulness to Christ and for your involvement in our Catholic community. It is wonderful to see your families at Mass and at parish events. Your children are the future of the Church, and we are grateful to partner with you to raise them in the Catholic faith!

Second, we want to encourage you to prayerfully consider whether Catholic education is right for your family. Corpus Christi Catholic School, which is jointly owned by our two Holland-area parishes, welcomes all children, enriching their knowledge, nurturing their faith, and building their character in a Catholic Christian environment. Our parishes invest in Catholic education because it integrates academic excellence, missionary discipleship, and training in virtue. From preschool through eighth grade, students at Corpus Christi receive a comprehensive education of mind, heart, and spirit that prepares them for success in higher education, the global marketplace, and vocations of service. That’s the Catholic school difference!

To help you with your discernment, we invite you to Corpus Christi’s open house on Thursday, February 16, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Come for a tour of our school and information on our challenging curriculum, dedicated teachers, and nurturing environment. You’ll also learn how we’re making Catholic education affordable for everyone in our community, including the Discover the Difference program, which offers new K-8 families a free first semester! You can also learn more about our parish school online at

Catholic education empowers parents to form their children in the faith as they learn, grow, and develop their God-given gifts. Please pray about the role of Catholic school in your family and attend the Corpus Christi open house on February 16!

In Christ,

Fr. Michael Burt
Pastor, Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church

Fr. Luis Garcia
Pastor, St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church

Confession is canceled on June 5 because Fr. Michael will be at the Corpus Christi graduation Mass.
