Hello to Church School Directors, Teachers, and Festival Coordinators:

In 2005, the Fellowship of St. John the Divine agreed to work together with the Department of Christian Education to coordinate the Creative Festivals, since the Church Schools staff works with the children to provide the entries. The Fellowship will continue to provide festival coordinators, displays, and awards. Please note that none of the rules or rubrics have been changed; however, we are studying the feasibility of standardizing rules, rubrics and due dates for the entire Archdiocese. Please note that the Bible Bowl, and the Oratorical Festival are still being coordinated by the Youth Department. [link]

“Submissions,” links you to the names of the festival coordinators. Due to web-related privacy issues, you will not find addresses listed. You can email the coordinator through the website with any questions and to ask for submission information. Check also with your parish priest who should have received complete contact information for submissions. If you have any questions that cannot be answered by your festival coordinators, or chairperson, please contact the Department of Christian Education, at

I would like to recognize my staff, and particularly, Kh. Leslee Abud, Janet Abueita, and Rosemary Shumski for assisting me in the continuing effort to improve the Creative Festivals.

Your servant in Christ,

Carole Buleza for the

Staff and Associates of the Department of Christian Education,

& Members of the Fellowship of St. John the Divine
