The terrible plague of deadly mass shootings in our country calls us, in the words of the US bishops, “to fight this social disease that has infected our nation.” I join my voice to my brother bishops’ in inviting all to pray and work to end this culture of violence and to advocate for needed changes to prevent this scourge from continuing.
My name is Gisella Mancini. I am excited for the opportunity to be the new kindergarten teacher at your school. I have been a parishioner at St. Matthew Cathedral since the early 1990s. When I joined the parish part of my family were already parishioners. Joe and Gail Mancini as well as their three children - Blair, Stephanie and Matthew Mancini - had been parishioners and involved in the parish school. Following them to various school functions and sporting activities began my love for St. Matthew Cathedral School.
