Accepting the proclamation, Holy Spirit School Principal Armand Lamberti, said, “since coming to Holy Spirit School the beginning of last school year, I have been amazed at how wonderful our mayor and committee folks have been in accepting Holy Spirit School as a member of the Township.”
Lamberti continued, “remember Holy Spirit is here. If you’re considering the Catholic school advantage, the faith along with the academics, please come visit us. I thank you for this honor and will proudly hang his proclamation at Holy Spirit School.”
At the kick-off to Catholic Schools Week on Sunday, an open house was held at Holy Spirit School, welcoming prospective and current students and their families for an introduction to Holy Spirit.
