A Message From Rev. Joseph Zalacca, Canonical Administrator
Dear Northern Chautauqua Catholic School Community,
I am excited to be chosen to serve as the Canonical Administrator of the Northern Chautauqua Catholic School .
My own Catholic school education at Holy Family in Leroy, St. Joe’s in Batavia, and Notre Dame in Batavia, was a major influence on my life and my vocation as a priest . It is my goal to continue to give the children of NCCS a wonderful Catholic school experience that will inspire their faith, challenge and support them academically, and nurture their personal development.
I invite you to join with me and the entire school community to work together to foster a school where we follow the teachings of Christ and His Church, every student is valued and treated with love and respect, everyone benefits from an emphasis on positive interactions, and school is fun, interesting and challenging and prepares our students for the future.
With your support and that of our Pastors, teachers and staff, we will build a school that is excellent, accessible, affordable and sustainable, providing the students of our community with a quality Catholic school education for many years to come.
Rev. Joseph A Zalacca
