Living,Celebrating,and Proclaiming Our Faith


Thursday, April 18, 2024

Dear Families,

This past week, pastors from parish schools and principals met to discuss the state of our schools. So many wonderful things are happening at our school and the other schools in the C.I.S.V.A. With the changes in society, we have been presented with many challenges. Archbishop Miller said something that really resonated with me. As parents, you are not just the first educators of your children, but also their first Catechist. What a wonderful gift to be able to share your faith with your child and give them the gift of a catholic education. As educators, we are also blessed to talk about our faith and teach with our catholic worldview. Please pray for all those involved in catholic education – our pastors, staff, students and families.

Education in our Catholic faith is a very important work in the Church. But some Catholic schools do not live out their mission of Catholic education very fully.
