AN APOSTOLATE OF THE CONGREGATION OF hOLY cROSS

Jennifer O'Donnell

Madrinas/Padrinos


Grupo de Madrinas y Padrinos is a new program which began in January 2013 as a way to empower parents to leadership and visible presence in the school community. Modeled after the strong social networks of madrinas and padrinos in the Latino community, this program embraces ‘parents helping parents as mentors’ for the good of the entire community.

 

Currently our core group of parents is:

   serving as mentors for new school families

   working within HASA to help families with programs and support

   helping to facilitate parent education

   serving as ambassadors for the school

 

The Four Pillars of Grupo de Madrinas y Padrinos  are:

 

Community- sharing our story; inviting & welcoming others

Commitment- involvement in your child’s education and service to the school

Communication- open communication among parents and a strong parent/school partnership

Mentoring- leading by example; empowering parents through education and living our faith
