We Live the Word!

Friday, May 25

For this Memorial Day weekend,

Father John V. Doyle School would like to share a Grandparents' Day poem for our grandparents and grandfriends who are no longer with us:

In Loving Memory

written by Angela Ranucci, grade 7

I thought of you with love today

but that is nothing new.

I thought about you yesterday

and the days before that too.

I think of you in silence

and often speak your name.

All I have are memories

and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake

with which I will never part.

God has you in his keeping

and I have you in my heart.

As always, Thank You for your support of Father John V. Doyle School!

Mrs. Jae T. Smith

Please look for a separate email containing a letter from Father Woolley!

Silent/Live Auction 2019!

The Auction Committee is getting ready to start planning next year’s auction and would like your help! There are many aspects to planning an auction and everyone has a skill which we can use.

Can you type? Data entry people are needed.

Are you creative wrapping gifts? Join us to wrap auction baskets.

Do you have web design skills or are you able to create a booklet? You would be perfect to create our web page or to create the auction booklet.

In addition to the above, we need people to write thank you letters to our donors, create our Wine & Dine Mystery Bags, advertise our event, or help with soliciting donations, either in person or by typing the donation letters.

A little bit of your time and skills will help our auction be a great success. If you are willing to donate some of your time and skills, or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at


Linda DiChristofaro

Auction Chairperson
