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 Sept. 19th

Posted on Sep 19, 2016


***7th Grade Religion***

We will be starting chapter 2 this week which discusses the Sacrament of Baptism, the Baptism of Jesus, the symbols used in Baptism, and those other Sacraments that are also considered to be sacraments of initiation.

*Students should continue to work on their FIVE hours of required service for this first trimester.

***8th Grade Religion***

This week we will be discussing the origin and history of the Nicene Creed.  We will be using our textbook The History of the Church.  We will be  reading about the growth of Christianity in the fourth century as well as the many factors that played an important role  in the spread of Christianity.  During this point in history, the Fathers of the Church found it necessary to comprise a statement of Christian beliefs, otherwise known as the Nicene Creed.

*Students should continue to work on their EIGHT hours of required service for this first trimester.
