Due to the upcoming inclement weather predictions, Gloucester Catholic will switch to all school remote learning for 12/16 and 12/17. Wednesday 12/16 will be Schedule A day and Thursday , 12/17 will be Schedule B day. Remember, remote learning is during the same time that the class is happening in real time (please check your student’s schedule for this information). In addition, many teachers will be posting materials on Schoology, which can be accessed at https://gchsrams.schoology.com – they log in with their RamsNet information. We will return to normal inschool learning on Friday, 12/18. Friday 12/18 will be a Dress Down Day
November is the time the Catholic community is especially mindful of our beloved dead. Our faith assures us that the bond of joy and love we shared in life does not end with death.
As an expression of our faith, and in gratitude for the community that is Gloucester Catholic, we will soon ask our faculty, staff and students to list those whom they would like to remember during this month so that we can place these names near the altar in the Dominican chapel to be remembered in our Masses, prayers and devotions. We invite you to send any names you would like to be included in the same Masses, prayers and devotions during November. Please complete the attached form link send your intentions to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in our remembrance.

As GCHS’s English and Religion teacher, Mrs. Silber understands the importance of service and spirituality as a part of student life and Gloucester Catholic’s mission. She has creatively helped students experience both components through classroom education and service activities within local communities.
She is the coordinator for Gl…oucester Catholic’s service and retreat program and introduces spirituality during retreats — whether that means learning about Latino culture, tackling subjects like racism and injustice, or helping at Cathedral Kitchen. Collectively, GCHS students performed over 6,040 service hours last year.
“We changed the service program recently where students perform service hours in school along with a majority of hours in the community,” said Mrs, Silber. “Juniors and
seniors do required independent service at 20 hours per year per student. Freshmen and sophomores take part in a service retreat, so we go as a class and perform volunteer hours within the community.”
Mrs. Silber first came to Gloucester Catholic in 2012 and 2013, when she was completing her master’s program in education while enrolled at Saint Joseph’s University. She is preparing to finish a second master’s in theology at The College of St. Elizabeth. She has taught full-time at Gloucester Catholic since the Fall of 2016.
“I was really surprised and excited to be featured among the Top Teachers,” said Mrs. Silber. “To be young and so new in my career, it’s awesome to be honored in this way.”
