Gloucester Catholic Announces School Re-Opening Plan

Back to School Graphic 8_8_20 BGloucester Catholic has announced our reopening plan (click on link below) to welcome our students, faculty and staff back to campus and reopen school in September.  Our reopening plan was developed in coordination with the Diocese of Camden with the expectation that we reopen full time for in-person learning. We are following the New Jersey guidelines, the CDC, and local public health officials to ensure the safety of our students, families, faculty, staff and all members of our community as we reopen school.

Thank you again for your cooperation, patience and flexibility. We look forward to the renewal of school life in September. Please continue to keep Gloucester Catholic in your prayers, as well as all those affected by COVID-19. Thank you again for your support.

Your Voice Matters: Call for Action on Non-Public School Funding in Economic Stimulus Package

Dear Families and Friends of Gloucester Catholic,

Capitol BuildingYou may have heard that Congress is presently working on the fourth phase of federal economic stimulus relief. It is imperative that every family who has children in our diocese contacts their elected officials in Washington asking for their assistance in providing additional funds for nonpublic school students. Parents can use the Voter Voice System set up by the NJ Catholic Conference. This is a very quick and easy way to get your message out to legislators.

2020 Johnny Gaudreau Scholarship Golf Tournament Canceled

Gaudreau logoDear Friends,

It is with genuine regret that we have decided to cancel this year’s Johnny Gaudreau Scholarship Golf Tournament, scheduled for July 24th, due to the ongoing crisis affecting our world, our country and great state of New Jersey. We do so with heavy hearts. The scholarships that are funded through the Gaudreau Family Scholars Program remain an important priority for all of us. More than 30 students at Gloucester Catholic have been positively impacted by the generous support of our golfers and sponsors. There is hope. We have already started the planning for the 2021 Johnny Gaudreau Scholarship Golf Tournament, one that we promise will be bigger, better, and more impactful. For your support of Gloucester Catholic and the Gaudreau Family Scholars Program, we remain grateful. We send our best wishes to you and your families for good health in these exceedingly difficult and challenging times. In the true spirit of Gloucester Catholic, we will come through this stronger.

All the best,

The Gaudreau Family and Ed Beckett ’78, Principal
