This week’s edition of The Beacon pays tribute to the Class of 2016 — made up of students graduating from both high schools and elementary schools in the Diocese of Paterson. The collective message from the Class of 2016 bodes well for the future of our nation. These graduates will succeed because our Catholic schools in our Diocese have done and continue to do an outstanding job of building a sound educational foundation for students rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Donations of food to the annual Corpus Christi Food Drive, instituted by Bishop Serratelli three years ago, are used to keep the food pantries of Diocesan Catholic Charities agencies and 40 parish food pantries stocked during the summer months when donations of food are at their lowest level of the year.
