Mrs. Maura Grochocinski, Junior High Religion

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  I am looking forward to a unique and successful school year with your child.

A little about myself: due to the difficulty in pronouncing my last name, I am known to the SJF students and to many parents as “Mrs. G.”  I live in Most Holy Redeemer parish and my husband and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters, a son-in-law, and a new grandson, Martin McGrath Guinane.

This year will be my 21st year teaching at Saint John Fisher. I have taught different grades and various subjects throughout the years. I have enjoyed teaching religion in the Jr. High for the past eleven years, watching my students grow both academically and spiritually.


7th & 8th Grade Religion-Week of February 4th

Posted on Feb 03, 2019

We have a busy and exciting week ahead of us as our eighth graders prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation this Sunday at 12:00 Mass.  Please keep all of our Confirmandi in your prayers as they prepare for this very special sacrament.

***7th Grade Religion***

In order to share in the excitement of the eighth graders as they celebrate their Confirmation this Sunday, the seventh graders will be discussing the Sacrament of Confirmation.  We will also be working on review assignments for chapter 8. The chapter 8 test will be this Friday.  Students will be responsible for all of the information discussed in chapter 8 as well as the meaning of the eight Beatitudes which were also discussed in class. 

***All students should continue to work on their FIVE hours of required service hours for this second trimester.

***8th Grade Religion***

This week the students will be continuing with their Confirmation interviews with Father Ken. They will also be sharing their saint slide presentations with their classmates. They will be giving a brief history of their saint as well as the gifts of the Holy Spirit demonstrated by their saint during their saint's lifetime.  We will be practicing for the Confirmation Liturgy Wednesday and Thursday.

***All students should continue to work on their EIGHT hours of required service hours for this second trimester.

On Wednesday evening, at 7:30 PM, there will be a practice for the Confirmation Liturgy for all students, parents, and sponsors in the church.

Students should arrive no later than 11:30 for the Confirmation Liturgy which will be celebrated on Sunday, February 10th, at 12:00 Mass.
