Pastor’s Message


To our Administration, Faculty, Parents and Students,

As I continue my work at St. Clement Parish and St. Rose of Lima School, I am grateful to all of you for helping to make me a welcome member of this community. In the short amount of time that I have been here, I have seen that spiritual growth is of the utmost importance to the development of not only our children, but also of our school as a whole.

If you have been around the school, you will see that I take an active role in being a member of this community. I get great joy spending time with your children and seeing them grow both intellectually and spiritually. Whether it is doing Kiss and Drop, playing with them at recess or helping out in their Religion class, the time spent with them is very special to me. In the true motto of our school, St. Rose of Lima is a place where we can see the face of Christ in everyone.

I am thankful to Mrs. Izzi for the leadership and guidance she gives to our school all year long. Our faculty and staff are the best around and you can rest assured that your children are receiving the best education.

As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our school, please take some time to learn about the history of this wonderful institution. We plan to celebrate this great milestone all year through. We may not be the biggest school in the area, but I truly believe that we are the best.

Again, thank you for accepting me with such warmth.

God Bless, Father Matt
