We Will Strengthen Catholic Education in Our Diocese
In order to form young disciples in the twenty-first century, we look to our Catholic schools as a primary resource to form our children in the Catholic faith. Through our efforts we will enable thousands of young people to grow in their faith and boldly proclaim Christ.

Although you or others may not have children in school, the students who will be educated at our Catholic schools will become pivotal members of our society who will be shaping our culture and communities for Christ.
