Dear Parent/Guardian:, St. Ephrem School has an “After & Before” School convenience for working parents called the CARES Program. The program is now in its 16th year and has seen a significant growth since its inception. We know the cost of tuition is hard for some parents so we have tried to keep the cost of the program to an affordable price.Registration for the CARES Program will take place the same week you will be registering your child for St. Ephrem School. I should be there for any questions you may have. However, you can save time, by downloading a copy of either the “Before or After” Registration Forms by accessing and clicking on CARES Program, then click “Registration Forms” – Before/After. Please bring the completed form and registration fee when coming that day. Additional information and costs for the program is also available online. If you have any questions prior to registration, you can reach me by emailing me at email@example.com. Sincerely, Marilyn McDevittSAINT EPHREM CHURCH HISTORY.............His Eminence, John Cardinal Krol established Saint Ephrem Parish on June 8, 1966, and appointed Father William Herrity as the founding Pastor. The parish was made up from two neighboring parishes at the time, Our Lady of Grace and Saint Charles Borromeo. On June 17, 1973, Monsignor Edward S. Musial was appointed to succeed Father Herrity, who suffered a heart attack and died, while driving in his car. Upon Monsignor Musial's retirement in 1996, Father James E. McGuire was appointed pastor. Monsignor Edward Musial died on January 29, 2005, after a car accident. In 2002, after a battling cancer, Father Jim retired and Monsignor Kenneth P. McAteer was placed as pastor of the parish. As our history continues, we are greatful first and foremost to Almighty God for his many Blessings to our Parish family. We are greatful to all the priests, deacons and sisters who have cultivated the growth of the parish and all the families whose efforts and sacrifices made Saint Ephrem the great parish that it is today.
