From the Principal's Desk

Dear Father Doyle Families,

The Father Doyle School community participated in two moving and beautiful services this past week honoring beloved and cherished members of our school community.

Firstly, on Wednesday evening we held a Prayer Service for Veterans in front of the school gym. It was a beautiful ceremony that included prayer, scripture, and music in tribute to all of the service men and women connected to our school community. Thank you to all who assisted in making this event possible!

Secondly, the funeral Mass for long time Saints John and Paul priest in residence Father John "J.D." Duggan was held this past Thursday morning. Former pastor Fr. Grenon's homily was a beautiful reminder of the gifts that Father J.D. shared with each of us - genuine kindness, good humor, and a powerful dedication to our Lord's presence in the Eucharist. Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and my perpetual light shine upon him!

Finally, we're looking forward to a spectacular drama production of All Together Now! this weekend! Best of luck to all of our performers, and a special thanks to Mrs. Burns, Mr. Mattias, and all of our staff and volunteers who have made this production possible.

Uniform Policies for the 2021-2022 School Year

The school is aware that ordering and receiving uniforms has been especially difficult this year. While it is important that students continue to adhere to the dress code, we understand that - based on uniform availability - some additional options may be necessary in order for our parents to easily and cost effectively dress their child(ren) in uniform. With this in mind, please carefully review the FJVD Uniform Policy Amendments for the 2021-2022 academic year provided here. Please note that these uniform policy amendments are only valid for the 2021-2022 school year. If you need help finding uniform items please contact Mrs. Marra at You may also complete the Used Uniform Request Form. Thank you!

Aluminum Can Tab Collection

Why: To support the Ronald McDonald House in Providence

How can you help? Save can tabs and send them in to Mr. Godin’s room.

Bottle Cap Drive

We’re excited to share that our school is part of the Coca-Cola Give program. This provides new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students. The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply send in bottle caps or product codes from boxes of beverages and our school receives a donation.

All caps and codes should be sent to Mr. Godin. Codes will be entered on one account to gain larger and quicker donations.

Thank you!
