And Now, A Word From Our Bishop

Our Catholic Schools — More Important Than Ever

Too often, we over-tout the academic excellence of our Catholic Schools, as if that is the only reason they exist. They are academically excellent, of course, but the best thing about our Catholic Schools is that they are places where we can work with parents to form a child’s heart and mind. In a beautiful section of Saint Paul’s letter to the Philippians, he writes, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things” Phil 4:8. Essentially, this is what a Catholic School is for. To form a child in purity, truth, justice, beauty, grace, and excellence in all things; and to give praise and thanks to the God who is Author of it all. To become fully human by coming to know Jesus Christ and see all things in his light.
